My obsession with this scarf started when I was watching the Half Blood Prince. I'm not much of a Harry Potter fan, but my husband was watching it and I sat knitting next to him, partly paying attention to the movie. And suddenly something divinely beautiful caught my eye and I yelled out and ordered my husband to stop and rewind. My husband did as he was bid, curious to see what he'd missed out on... And around Hermione's neck was this revelation of a scarf. I fell in love. Head over heels. (And my husband sighed and chuckled a bit.)
And thanks to Ravelry, I was able to find someone who had fallen even more in love with this scarf than me. So much that she'd spent days figuring out the pattern. And she kindly shares the pattern here.
I did want to knit it myself, but realised that this winter is too busy for me to start knitting on such a big project for myself. So I googled and found a lady in Denmark with a knitting machine - and voila: A Hermione's Scarf for me!! Instant gratification.
The lady in Denmark did a great job, except that the gauge was a little on the tight side, but anyway I absolutely love it! But I must confess, I would probably have loved it even more if I'd made it myself. Strange that.
