Knitting Pattern: Magic Gryffindor Scarf

Free Knit Pattern: It's easy to create a "magic", color changing, Gryffindor Scarf for your little Harry Potter fans. Learn the knitting trick.My daughter grew up with Harry Potter. She read the books, watched the movies and even got me hooked on the franchise. So it was no surprise this year, when she asked me to knit her a Gryffindor scarf for Christmas. (Especially since her new school colors are maroon and gold.)

I don't know why, but I really struggled with the pattern for this one. It took me five tries to create the perfect design because I didn't want to make a plain old scarf. I was looking for a design worthy of my two, 9-inch, bamboo magic wands knitting needles

My friend's, I think I created it. This two-color pattern is very easy to knit, and has a neat little magic trick which I will reveal in a moment.


  • Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Yarn in Burgundy
  • Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Yarn in Mustard
  • US size 10 knitting needles


My finished scarf is approximately 7 inches wide and 63 inches long.

In Burgundy

CO 25

Row 1 (Right Side): P5, k5, p5, k5, p5.
Row 2 (Wrong Side): P25.

In  Mustard

Row 3: K5, p5, k5, p5, k5.
Row 4: P25.

Repeat Rows 1-4, alternating colors every two rows, until piece measure 63 inches or your desired length. Bind off.

Please note that you don't need to cut and reattach your yarns when changing colors. When you switch colors, simply lift the new yarn strand up on the right side of the previous color strand and pull it snugly.

Now, magicians may not reveal their secrets, but knitters do.

When you look down the right side of the scarf, from your needles toward the cast on edge, you will see that the vertical stripes go - maroon, gold, maroon, gold, maroon.

Now, look up the right side of the scarf, from the cast on edge toward the needles... Abracadabra... and the vertical stripes go - gold, maroon, gold, maroon, gold.

With a flourish of your knitting needles, you can create a magical scarf that Professor Dumbledore would be proud of!
