Sometimes it’s so chilly that even a lion’s mane needs an extra layer! With its red and gold stripes, it’s the perfect piece for keeping your Gryffindor™ Lion Wooble cozy all winter long.

Those spectacular stripes do require some Beginner+ skills, but our Easy Peasy Yarn™ and step-by-step videos will keep things outstandingly simple. In fact, you’ll be finished and roaring with pride in no time. So, grab your hook and get started, ’cause no matter how cold it gets, this scarf is sure to keep your Woobles feeling warm!

You'll also need a 4mm crochet hook and tapestry needle, which comes with any beginner crochet kit.

Incorrect Instructions, Poor Choice of Technique

First and foremost, the instructions have errors! The instructor refers repeatedly to "carrying both tails" and that is completely incorrect! You carry both pieces of *working* yard. And because the instructor's hands and the camera angle obscure key parts of the piece, it would be nearly impossible for a true beginner to figure out what was going on.
Second, there are so many missing bits, even in the parts where the directions are not flat out wrong. There are little parts of this technique that need to be explained or your piece is going to turn out wrong. Wrapping the carried piece around the back has to be done in a certain way, or you won't end up with a straight scarf edge. You will end up with a zig zag. A beginner is not going to be able to figure out easily the best way to wrap, and because the video does not show that part clearly it's going to be frustrating!
Third, this is frankly a weird technique choice for this piece. There are better ways to do alternating colors. The yarn carrying is probably selected to make the piece chunkier, but there are better ways to do that.
Fourth, this technique leads to a twisted piece with being so narrow. You end up with a strand of DNA. That's easy enough to block flat, but the block techniques are not included.
Fifth, enough with the stitch markers. It's a row of two. It's so easy to teach how to recognize a row end, you should do that. Using a stitch marker at the ends of the rows easily doubles or triples the time it takes to complete this piece.
Finally, this is a two sided piece. That's a result of the technique. One side will have distinct stripes. The other side with have obvious muddling where the yarn is picked up and carried. This is a direct result of the technique, both using carried yarn to "chunk" the piece and picking up the contrasting yarn in the last portion of the previous row. However, all the photos and videos carefully obscure the backs of the scarves, so you cannot see how muddled they look. A beginner is going to think they did something wrong, especially with little comments in the video about putting the contrast yarn in a certain place to "encase" it in the other color. SC won't encase, and even if it did the pick up stitches still pop out visually.
Wooble kits are *VERY* expensive because they are sold with the expectation of having complete, correct, and easy to follow instructions. This kit fails miserably in that regard. Not worth the price, even as a bundle.

Sorry The Woobles but I think there needs to be some improvement

I bought the Lion and Scarf bundle (Lion is an easy 5 star) but I can’t say the same for this scarf. Firstly I just am not a fan of the crochet technique (I think the Harry Potter scarf looks better). Secondly it’s hard. Grant it the lion was my first wooble and the scarf if next but there’s no rating on the accessory kits for difficultly and the only warning is that you’re not supposed to start with an accessory kit. Stitching two colors together in this way took A LOT of brain power for me and rewatching the videos a gazillion times. Grant it once I got it, I GOT IT! Though I made several mistakes. My rating comes from the way the pattern looks poor from one side and on a scarf it’s hard to hide the ugly side. The other thing is the sewing in the tail ends video is not helpful for his scarf because the video shows one color and the scarf is two and they’re totally different shapes! I just had to make up my own sewing because the video wasn’t helpful at all. My final complaint is that the scarf is bulky on the lion wooble. It doesn’t have the grace of the picture which I understand but there’s no added video showing us how to tie the scarf around the lion (or any other wooble) and no ideas on how to make it look cute. I stood for a good while just trying to make it look decent on my lion and for how much time I spent making it I really want to use it but I was left underwhelmed in all honesty. Still love this collab and am really proud to have finally been able to crochet something of my very own.
