I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Harry Potter POA Crochet Scarf Free Pattern

The Prisoner of Azkaban Hogwarts scarves are very different from the old scarves where egalitarian stripes where the norm. I have created a pattern Inspired on the POA aka Prisoner of Azkaban scarves. All I request is that you place a comment, on this blog entry, to let me know you are going to use or intend to use the pattern. If you want my Knitted version, you can click here POA Scarf Knitted Version. I will have more pictures as I make more, but this is an original Gryffindor.

Materials:

7 Ounces of Main Color

2 Ounces or more of contrasting color

Hook Size I

Darning Needle and sciccors.

To learn how to make this Stitch cick here --> hdc

POA Crochet Scarf Version

Main Pattern

How to make a chain? * See note below

When Changing colors cut yarn and leave at least a 6 to 10 inch tail to weave.








This video is a Demostration of color change for this scarf. It is my first You Tube Video, lol!

With Main Color and Crochet Hook I (or size you prefer) Chain 30.

Beginning Row: hdc in second chain from hook and in each chain for a total of 29 hdc stitches. turn

Row 1 Chain 2 , count chain 2 as first hdc, hdc in each stitch across, for 29 stitches, turn
Row 2 - 21 Repeat Row 1
Row 22 Repeat Row 1 , but change colors in last hdc (** see note on how to change colors below)
Row 23-24 Repeat Row 1 with Contrasting Color, on Row 24 last hdc Change colors to Main color.
Row 25-27 Repeat Row 1 with Main color, On Row 27 Last hdc, Change Colors to Contrasting color.
Row 28-29 Repeat Row 1 with Contrasting Color, on Row 29 last hdc Change colors to Main color.
Keep repeating Rows 1-29 as much as you need to, Until it reaches about 56 inches, then finish with Row 1-22.



Finishing:

Weave the ends. Add fringe to your liking , short, long, every stitch , every other stitch, one or two strands. This is a personal touch. A picture should be posted of the scarf. I made two and forgot to take pictures.


* Start with a loop on the hook. Hook yarn and pull through. (One chain completed.)

** When ready to change to a different color, make your hdc in the old color on the last stitch, then, pull the new color through the three loops on the hook to complete that hdc or half double crochet. You can watch the video as well, if you are more of a visual person.

Oh my gosh! This is awesome! I spent so much time looking for a crochet pattern that didn't look messy. I know how long and how wide I want my scarf but I wasn't sure sc or hdc. Seeing your pattern and pics made choose hdc. I love love love your videos too! (I didn't know how to change colors, I'm just getting into crocheting since childhood). Thank you so much and Cheers for being a guy who can get down in crochet town!
