I have finally started a Doctor Who scarf for myself. It's about 3.5' long right now and about 7-8" wide. I actually had it about 1.5' long once before but it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too wide for my liking. Plus, I was trying something to make it look a little more like a knitted garter stitch, by doing the single crochets so they alternated in the front and back loops.

Yeah, it looked bad.

I frogged it, rolled the yarn and started over. I'm MUCH happier with it now with just the standard single crochets. I'm also doing the color changes on the same sides, so this scarf will actually end up being slightly longer because I'm adding a row, if necessary to each color, to make the color changes uniform.

It's being made on a G sized hook.



Yarns included so far:
--1 skein of SignatuR Handknits, 8 Ply Pure Wool in color #630 for the camel (love this yarn's texture and thickness)
--1 skein of Plymouth Yarn Encore in color #6002 for more of the camel but I prefer the first camel yarn I had
--1 skein of SignatuR Handknits, 8 Ply Pure Wool in color #664 for the rust (love this yarn too but this is starting to look more like a scarlet color to me)
--1 skein of SignatuR Handknits, 8 Ply Pure Wool in color #645 for the green (see a trend here yet?)
--Almost 2 skeins of Trendsetter Yarns Marino VIII in color #335 for the purple (a very nice plum color)
--1 skein of Helio in color #3727 (I think, the label is in Dutch) for the bronze
--1 skein of Plymouth Yarn Encore in color #6002
--1 skein of Lion Brand Baby's First in color #157 (Honey Bee) for the yellow, but this was a stringy bulky weight yarn, so I'm actually separating it as I use it. (I like the label on this yarn. It has a ruler on both edges, in centimeters and inches, which makes for a convenient quick ruler.)
