I knitted a POA Potter scarf for my youngest sister last winter. It took what seemed like forever. I started in November and it was meant to be a Christmas gift. Unfortunately knitting that much in the round gave me a repetitive wrist injury which had me sidelined for two weeks (although I still worked a row or two every few days unbeknownst to my doctor). Once the swelling went down and I could move my wrist without feeling searing stabbing pain, I went back to work in earnest. Eventually I did drop one stripe repeat in order to finish it earlier and sent it to her finally in February. I was very proud when it was done and loved it so much I almost kept it, but she had already been informed of it’s existence for her and I let it go…...reluctantly. It was so long that both sides reached my knees and when wrapped around my neck there was no way any wind could ever touch my skin. It was like magic!!!. I will definitely do this again so I can have one for myself except this time I’ll use a merino wool (if I can find in the right colors) instead of acrylic. It was a little stiffer then the actual scarves look in the movies and I think a natural fiber might achieve that. I recommend it to anyone who loves Harry Potter or knows someone who does.
