Yup. That's me.
Naturally, when I saw a pattern, on craftster, for the scarf that Luna wears in "Order of the Phoenix" I went completely gaga. I went out the next day in search of the perfect yarn.
Well, I couldn't find the perfect yarn so I settled on Bernat Softee Baby in the Flannel color. This yarn is classified as a light or 3. Even though the yarn is thinner than the suggested yarn I thought my scarf was getting too wide compared to the one Luna wore. I omitted one of the center most rows. I still think this scarf is too wide in comparison to the original.
You can see my scarf is as wide as Luna's, even with the missing row.Here's a closeup of the missing ladder type row. If you look carefully at the picture of Luna you can see her scarf has two of these rows.
If I could have found it, I think a sock weight, or even a finger weight yarn, and a smaller hook would have replicated the scarf better. Alas, I could not find anything that was not made of wool in a grey I liked.
All things aside, I love how this scarf turned out. It's a really soft and comfy fashion scarf for spring and winter.
Head to Craftster for the wonderful pattern. The creator of the pattern has written instructions and a chart which are super easy to follow.
