A bit of trivia for you: I was the co-host and producer of a Harry Potter podcast called Spinner’s Cast for a few years when the Harry Potter books were first being published. During that time I attended Harry Potter movie premieres (for Order of the Phoenix I sat next to the actor who plays Percy Weasley), I spoke to CNN and the BBC about Harry Potter, and I traveled around the United States to attend Harry Potter conventions.
What I’m trying to say is –
I’m a bit of a fan.
So it should probably be a bit of a surprise that I’ve never crocheted or knitted a Harry Potter – themed scarf before! I’ve made hats, arm warmers and other do-dads, but never a scarf. I also realized that after 13 years, I’ve changed. A lot. I used to call myself a Slytherin, but now I’m a lot more empathetic. A kinder, friendlier Kim.
I took a few of those infamous Sorting Hat Quizzes and found that I’m equal parts Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. It turns out the modern version of the Harry Potter fandom has a name for this combination: Ravenpuff. It’s cute and it fits perfectly! I figured there are a lot of people out there who don’t quite fit into one of the four Hogwarts houses, so why not make a scarf that reflects this? Also – it’s a good way to get away from copyright issues.
I made this Ravenpuff scarf using dark blue and gold yarn. The blue is for Ravenclaw and the gold is for Hufflepuff. I chose to do this as my first published Tunisian crochet project and I hope you love it!

The yarn is acrylic by Red Heart. I was pretty impressed with the feel and drape of Red Heart With Love. Super Saver remains a budget icon, and With Love is soft and has a nice sheen. I chose the yarn based on the colors alone. You can use any worsted weight (4) yarn for this project!
