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 :)
Enjoy!

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