Custom Gryffindor scarf for Halloween

I was asked to make a Gryffindor scarf
for a 7-year-old's Halloween costume.

Good thing for Google.
Beyond knowing it's from Harry Potter,
I had no clue what that meant. 
(Like with all things Star Wars, I have no interest.)

Through my "research," I learned it is one of four
houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
and the colors are scarlet and gold. 

I found yarns that matched the examples I saw online
and went about crocheting a scarf that resembled the original,
most typically knitted in the round instead.

 It is 6" in width, made of single crochet stitches,
with each stripe at about 4" tall and
about a foot of fringe at each end.

Modeling above is my son who now wants
a scarf of his own in green and silver,
the colors of the House of Slytherin
(not that I know what that means).

The finished scarf is going to its recipient in Ohio.
If it is cold out on Halloween night,
little Hermione Granger will be nice and cozy.

Hey! Nice to see this post. I actually made my own Gryffindor scarf as well. Yours is beautiful. I just wanted to let you know for this winter (if more people request some from you) that they have some patches on ebay (shown here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Harry-Potter-House-Gryffindor-Crest-Iron-Patch-/230614339062?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b1af8df6) that look cute. Great job girl!
