Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Hermione's Fair Isle Scarf

Months ago I promised that I was working on the pattern for Hermione's Fair Isle Scarf to go with her Cable & Eyelet Hat. It's high time I deliver, huh? After seeing the movie, it appears that there may be a couple more patterns in the scarf before it repeats, but I don't have a photo to go from. If anyone does, please send it to me so I can work up a better chart!!

Here's a bit of the sample. In the move, my camera batter charger was lost, but I will update with a better picture soon!

And the chart. The pattern is a 12 stitch repeat. If you do this in a tube, you'll need to cast on a multiple of 12. In my sample, I cast on 84 on US6 16" circular needles and joined in the round. I used all Paton's Classic worsted weight yarns except for the green which is Nature Spun in Grecian Olive. Instead of using movie-appropriate colors, I just used what I had on hand, so feel free to use whatever you like! Click on the chart for a larger view.

If I were up to Fair Isle, I'd get it in a hear beat because I love my Hermoine hat. When I saw the movie, I squealed when I saw the hat!

There is a pretty good picture of her scarf, but not up close. It is here at
I hope this helps because I am so antsy to knit this scarf! You are awesome thanks for your amazing patterns!

Thanks for posting the pattern! I'd tentatively started to work out the fair isle chart myself, but could only get some of it - now I can't wait to start knitting!

Do you know how much of each yarn you need for the scarf! Approximately even? I'm looking to start on the scarf but I have no idea how much to get of each colour. Thank you for posting!
