This scarf pattern was primarily inspired to mimic the clean lines and blunt color changes of the Quidditch sweaters worn by the Gryffindor Quidditch team in the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (below is an image of Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley modeling the sweater for us).
In order to knit a scarf to fulfill your own personal team pride, you need to know the appropriate colors of each of the houses. Hogwarts House Colors are as follows:
- Gryffindor -- Red and gold
- Hufflepuff -- Yellow and black
- Ravenclaw -- Blue and bronze (blue and gray in the films)
- Slytherin -- Green and silver
