I made this for a friend last holiday season, but only got to uploading the pics from my camera recently. I knitted this on size 9 needles, with Caron Simply Soft in red and black (my friend's favorite colors).

and here's what it looks like on (there's a dalek on each end of the scarf!)

based on THIS pattern: http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/who/dalekcloth.html
and my variations:

*pink = knit in red

I didnt know how to fair isle when I first started the scarf, so the back was rather messy. I created two red blocks that did weigh the scarf down/flatten the ends rather nicely, but in the future Id probably knit a second black scarf, or an inverse-colored scarf with red and black swapped to mask any messy stitching on the back.

The ugly backside:

What do you think? Also, if you decide to make one, please let me know!  Grin
