Hi all,
here's a super fast easy pattern for a TARDIS crochet ornament to hang on your xmas tree this year.
The finished TARDIS turns out to be about 8cm tall, is hollow but keeps its shape when hung from a tree.

Materials: Blue wool, size 3 or 4 crochet hook

1) Magic circle 6
2) increase every st = 12
3) increase every 2nd st = 18
4) increase every 3rd st = 24
5) *sc5, (sc, dc, dc, sc) in next st* repeat = 36
6) sc just the inside of each st (to make a raised ridge)
7) *sc5, dec2* repeat = 28
8) sc
9) sc
10) sc
11) sc
12) sc
13) sc
14) sc
15) sc
16) sc

Using light blue thread, create a loop (I plaited mine) from the top centre point of the TARDIS.

Using white thread add some windows and any other features you wish to include.

This TARDIS is designed to fit my little Doctor plushies inside. Add a few more sc rows if you wish to make a TARDIS that fits a Doctor with a hat inside

You can download a PDF copy of this pattern from the right side of my blog.

A larger, non-hollow pattern for a TARDIS plushie is also available at my blog, along with patterns for many of the Doctors.

Would love you to leave a comment if you plan to use this pattern :)

I made one for my friend who loves Dr. Who.  Looks a little sad, but hopefully she'll like it!
