HP Unity Scarf Finally Finished

Well, almost one year later, I finally found time to finish the Harry Potter Unity Scarf I started loom knitting for my mom on my pick-up stick loom. I would have had it finished much earlier, but I've been busy with the tabistry projects among other things.

I'm really please with how it turned out. Though, I had to simplify the pattern way more than I would have like to by eliminating all the crests but the first one. Oh well. It's very soft, thick and heavy. Should keep her neck toasty warm on cold nights. The black yarn I used is Caron Simply Soft, which I believe is made from recycled plastic bottles. To me, that is just mind boggling. How can a yarn this soft and pretty be made from bottles? The color stripes are various acrylic worsted weight yarns that I happened to have around. Though, as usual, my camera is oversaturating the colors. They are far more muted than they appear here.
