Weasley Twin Christmas Scarves

In the movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Molly Weasley gives the twins, Fred and George, scarves instead of her usual sweaters.  I decided to try my hand at copying those scarves.  You can buy one on Etsy now!

I knit a pair of these scarves in tubular fashion (lazy way to avoid weaving in all those pesky yarn ends) before watching the Christmas scene from the movie again and realizing the scarves were knit flat and very wide, so when they curled at the edges (as stockinette stitch will do) they were still wide enough to be decent scarves.  Now I have cast on a flat scarf to be more screen accurate. Will post scarf #3 when it is finished.
