If you are looking for a complete collection of Harry Potter Series, you can go to a bookstore or just visit any book over; a fiction lover or a fantasy lover that you know and you will find it all in their library or collections.
When an ardent Harry Potter fan asked me to make a creative bookmark to adorn the collection, I decided to surprise them with Hogwarts House scarves as Bookmarks!
If you are familiar with Harry Potter Series, there are 4 houses in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin.
Gryffindor has a lion as the symbol and it stands for bravery, daring, nerve, and chivalry. The house colours are deep red and gold.
Hufflepuff has a badger as the symbol depicting loyalty, hard working, dedication, honesty, and tolerance. The house colours are yellow and black.
Ravenclaw has an eagle in its logo and it values wit, creativity, and wisdom. The house colours are blue and bronze.
Slytherin has a serpent as the symbol that represents ambition, cleverness, cunning, resourcefulness, and pure blood heritage. The house colours are green and silver.

5 Little Monsters – Hogwarts Scarf bookmarks helped me to complete Hogwarts House Scarf Bookmark. They are made using 2 patterns as mentioned by Erica in 5 Little Monsters – A thick striped version and a thin striped version.
For Gryffindor, I used yellow and red colors and thick striped version. Unfortunately, the gold cotton yarn wasn’t available at that time.
For Hufflepuff, I used yellow and black colours and thick striped version.
For Ravenclaw, I used blue and bronze colours and thin striped version. The metallic bronze yarn thickness is different, thus I used 2 rows for 1 as per the instructions.
For Slytherin, I used green and grey colours and thin striped version. The silver yarn wasn’t available for me.
Dimensions of the mini-scarf:-
- Length: 8″
- Width: 1.5″
- The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
- You can give a defined edging.
- The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
- You can add tassels like the Harry Potter 1. Follow the link to make mini tassels.
- Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
- Instead of going for a different color for the border, use both the base colors around for alternate rows.
- The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
