    I just started knitting one of these for my boyfriend this morning! He’s all fandom-knitting in the winter – last Christmas he got the Jayne hat from Firefly. I’m knitting based on the tutorial.

    I made one a Dr. Who scarf for a friend three years ago. I was surprised how easy it was to find the patterns online. Someone had too many Tom Baker seasons and too much yarn laying around, but I am grateful! I would like to make another for myself.

    LOVE the scarf, but how come this isn’t tagged under the “As Seen on TV” category? I almost totally missed it!

  4. Sandy says:

    Wow! I have never seen this before, have only heard references to it. I did not realize how big and long it is! I can see the attraction, but how does someone only 5’2″ wear something like that! It’s almost a long narrow stole!

    I made one a few years ago for a friend, and used this excellent resource:

    All I can say is, good luck if you want to make one! I counted up all of the rows and stitches necessary, and it actually is 52,000 stitches. Yes, yes it is.
