Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Scarves

December 1, 2005

You know you’re a total knitting geek when you’re watching a movie and you think to yourself “Wow they changed the look of the scarves. Now I have a new project.” I’m so excited that they changed the scarves, and next time I see the movie they will have to go under closer scrutiny.

For those that aren’t yarn crazy, the scarves in the first three movies were big gold yellow and maroon blocks. They were equal in size and they were just a simple knit stitch, probably knit in the round to prevent curling. Now they are large burgundy blocks with skinny gold yellow stripes in between. There are two skinny golden yellow stripes close to each other. The pattern looks like it could be something like this;
10 rows burgundy
2 rows gold yellow
4 rows burgundy
2 rows golden yellow

What do you think? Like the old ones or the new ones better? I often make HP scarves for friends, and I used to make them for Relay fundraisers. Does this mean I have to change my ways?

    Of course you don’t have to change your ways! Everyone will always recognize the old ones as HP scarves so there’s no worries that people won’t know what thery’re getting. Although change is good. So split the difference and do both!

    I like that. I definitely want to try out the new ones. I’m wondering if people will recognize the new ones though. They’re cool looking, but they don’t say “Harry Potter” as much as the old ones do.
