There are a couple of Luna Lovegood scarves out there, but as I started crocheting them as X-Mas gifts one year, I realized that there were a few inaccuracies compared to the original scarf:
- Each row of the original scarf is different
- the clusters are not all the same size
- the picots actually do line up in an organized way
The perfectionist in me needed to get as close to the original scarf as possible, so I heavily modified the pattern that was the most accurate. Thank you, PinkLeo, for your Luna Lovegood Scarf pattern, without which my version would not have been possible. :)
Please do not use this pattern for profit. Harry Potter is a huge franchise and if they ever decide to publish their own version of this pattern you can bet there will be repercussions if they find you selling their stuff.
This pattern assumes you know how to read a pattern!
- 400 yards of dk weight yarn (I used 3 skeins of Knit Picks Swish DK, but it was a close thing)
- US Size G Hook (Size E or F if you are a loose crocheter, I crochet tight. You have been warned.)
- Embroidery needle for tucking in ends
- st = stitch
- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- V-Cluster: 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc
- Big-Cluster: 10 dc in same space space
- Mini-Cluster: 5 dc in same space
- Arch: skip 3 dc. 3dc in next dc. 2 dc in next 2 dc. 3dc in next dc. skip last 3 dc.
- Picot: Sc, ch 3, sl st in top of sc you just made.
Row 1: DC in 5th chain from hook (counts as first dc+ ch 1). (ch 1, skip next ch, dc in next ch) across. 185 ch 1 spaces, 186 dc.
Row 2: ch 3, turn. 2 dc in next ch 1 space. (ch 3, skip next ch 1 space, sc in next ch 1 space, ch 3, skip next ch 1 space, V-Cluster in next ch 1 space) across until there are only 2 spaces left. 2 dc in last ch 1 space. 1 dc in last dc (third ch of original ch 4). 43 V-Clusters.
Row 5: ch 1, turn. sc in first dc and in every stitch and chain across. 484 sc.
Row 6: ch 1, turn. Picot in first stitch. (sc in next 6 sc. Picot in next sc) across. Picots should line up in the 2nd and 9th stitches of each Arch, and in the center DC of each Mini-Cluster. 70 picots. finish off.
Repeat rows 1-6 on the other side. I staggered mine so it’d look more like the original scarf, but you have to mess around at the end or you’ll come out with one less space than you need. I forget what I did.
In order to re-start row 1:
- join with a slip stitch with the right side of the scarf facing you
- ch 4 (counts as first dc + ch 1)
- continue as normal for row 1
Block like a mofo. This thing twists all over the place.
