well, this comm looks rather inactive.... Nov. 14th, 2007 @ 01:40 pm
but i've joined anyway because i just taught myself crochet (from instructions in The Happy Hooker) and i LOVE it - it works up so fast!

no pix 'cause i have no digital camera (and no HP related crafts to capture).

right now i'm working on a hat, though i should find a pattern - it's working up oddly. BUT since it goes so fast, i don't mind ripping it and doing it again. amazing.

Hallo! May. 24th, 2006 @ 10:08 am
Hey all, I just started crocheting recently so I don't have any projects to post, but I love it so far...much the same as I'm a Potter-fan (right down to the Harry Potter quote conjurer widget for my Mac's Dashboard ^_^ ).

I love seeing peoples projects and hope to be able to show some I've made in the future.

Just saying howdy since I just joined.

I have been hooing some on would have the pattern for a crocheted sweater that Mrs. Weasley was wearing in a scene at her home. You don't see the sweater all that well but it looked so funky and intriguing. It looked to have been made from scraps of yarn, and perhaps scraps of other projects. Does anyone know the sweater I am talking about?

» Original-style Hogwarts scarf in dc.
Hi, everyone. Not sure if this community is still active, but for what it's worth, I'd like to share a few photos of the Hogwarts scarf I just finished.

My girlfriend requested Slytherin colors in the original pattern. I'm a novice crocheter (and can't knit at all, damn my left-handedness), so I went with an easy-to-use yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted, two skeins each of Forest Green Heather and Grey Heather. After several google searches failed to come up with a satisfactory pattern, I struck out on my own, and settled on doing double crochet with an I hook for a fairly open, flexible scarf.

My pattern was as follows:

In green, with an I hook, ch 28. In the 4th ch from the hook, dc. Dc in each ch across for a total of 25 dc. *Ch 3 for turning chain, turn, dc 25.* Repeat between * four more times for a total of six rows of green. (This gave me an 8" x 3.5" stripe.) Change to gray, *ch 3, turn, dc 25.* Repeat between * five more times for a total of six rows of gray; change to green and repeat.

To get the length my girlfriend wanted, I ended up with a total of 23 stripes, starting and ending with green. (If I do another Hogwarts-style scarf, I think I'll try 8 rows of dc in each stripe for a broader, more authentic look.) The scarf turned out to be a healthy 90" long, not including tassels, and I still had plenty of yarn left over (I used perhaps 300 yards of each color). Took a total of twelve hours over three days.

Sunday I made a Gryffindor scarf but I did one that was 10 5" blocks 5 of eah Burgundy and Gold.
It was my first time making anying than a blanket. For my first time I think it turned out ok. :)
