Knitted Harry Potter Scarf for a dog

Inspired By The Harry Potter Movies

Jason is just such a wannabe Weasley!

He has the right coloring and suits the Gryffindor house colors perfectly.

We have been watching the Harry Potter movies on and off over the last couple of months, whenever it is a stormy, rainy day we snuggle with a blanket and watch together.

The Gryffindor Dog Cowl Knitting Pattern

The Yarn I Used

The cowl was knit in this yarn for the main color – Hayfield Super Chunky With Wool in shade 0053 Hollyhocks.

I had some leftovers in the same brand of yarn in mustard that I used for the stripes.

This yarn is super bulky weight 06.
