The long and short of it: Gryffindor scarf and matching headband

Some projects take five minutes, and others a year. This scarf is one of those that takes a year. I started it around Valentine’s Day last year, and decided to finish it as I was reorganizing my yarn stash this week.

The main reason I put off finishing it was because I ran out of maroon. I had to use yellow to finish tying off the last few stitches. Originally, it was going to be longer, but I think six and a half feet is long enough, don’t you?

Being in a crochet mood, I decided to whip up a headband using the leftover yellow yarn.

To make the bow, I crochet a rectangle and tied braided yarn around the middle.  A few stitches to attach it to the headband, and TA-DA!
