First try at Tuinisian Crochet. I'm going to make all 11 doctors and put the Tardis in the center Smiley
He's a little stretched out. I'm going to cut and tie some of the carried threads to see if it let's me stretch him to the sides a bit, overall, a decent first attempt.

I just love it ! Can't wait to see the finished afghan - how long do you think it will take? Big projects like this take me ages as I get distracted by other smaller projects. This is such a good idea . Are you making the charts for the pictures yourself?

Thanks! He took me about 9-10 hours.
I found this image for all of them from an artist called zerobriant, but I am patterning them myself Cheesy
I've started in on 10 and I hope I'll get faster with practice!

When I first saw him in the thumbnail I thought he was the 2nd Dr! I will really look forward to seeing your next piece, I think it's a great idea.

LOL I've never seen Dr Who but when I was scrolling thru RWP I thought it was the Wedding Singer  Cheesy




Now that I've seen the original picture it all makes more sense and looks fab!  Wink

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.
