Hey gang!
I knit this for my best friend's son who loves Doctor Who. He's going off to college this year, and is leaving tomorrow for orientation. I wanted to make him something fun to take along. We live in Texas, and he'll be going to college in Corpus, but he loves it even though it will literally never be cold enough to warrant this kind of winter getup.

I'm not a Who fan, I've actually never seen an episode, so pardon my lack of Who-isms in this post.  Wink

I know there have been lots of Who scarves on here over the years, but I'm really proud of this! I don't like to knit very much, I prefer to crochet, so this was a lot of work for me.








I got the pattern from Ravelry, but the link claims it to be the official BBC pattern. Who knows? Either way, by the end, my carpal tunnel was acting up so badly that I cut a few stripes short of their designated stitches. Le sigh.

Anyhoo, c&c always welcome!

It turned out great!

Although I will never wear mine either, I found that it does make a nice sort of mini afghan for the couch...it can be wrapped around cold feet, thrown over the shoulders....I am sure he will love it and use it!

Nice job! I'm going to be tackling a Doctor Who scarf as soon as I get my current project off my needles.
