This double-thickness scarf is knit in the round using the Magic Loop method. One surface shows a Hufflepuff team pride pattern, and the other is a blank canvas for letters naming your position, house, or name in duplicate stitch, illusion, embroidery or intarsia as you prefer. Any smooth yarn will do. You might use a pom-pon or a button for his dear little snout – and if you’re making this for a small child, may I suggest a bobble, so it doesn’t come off? The sample shown here uses safety eyes; you can also just leave the stitch pattern of the eyes showing.

This little chart is intended as a supplement to the brilliant Hogwarts Double Knitted Bookscarves by the lovely and brilliant Ann Kingstone. Her charts are available on Ravelry.com, a free site for fiber crafters. I used this chart to make the double-knitted bookscarf you see here. It can also be a repeated stranded motif on a hat or socks or sweater yoke, or used singly as intarsia-work, perhaps on the back of a mitten!
This is a modest addition to the geometrifantastic “Stockinette Short-Row Sphere” by Brent Annable, found for free on his web site. I’ve simply made an intarsia chart to help you turn one of his spheres into a model of Planet Earth. I mean, every kid needs a stuffy planet, right? Begin at the International Date Line and work westward (as the sun does). You’ll find good success with slightly sticky yarns; smooth yarn such as bamboo would be very tricky. 100 yards each of green and blue will be more than sufficient; duplicate stitching Antarctica in white is a nice touch.
