My take on the Dr Who Scarf

Last year, a good friend of mine, Tyler, asked if I would knit a Dr Who scarf for him. I had heard of the show, but I couldn't understand why he would want a scarf from it. After he sent me a picture of the scarf, I could see why he wanted it. There are websites illustrating how awesome this scarf is.
I told him that if we split on the cost of yarn, I would knit it for him. We chose Lion Wool Ease Thick & Quick, mostly because of how bulky it is, and how much quicker it would knit up.
We chose a few colours less than what the scarf has, because we were going more of a tribute than a replica.
It's also much shorter than the original. I was worried with the weight of the T&Q that it would stretch out and cause problems down the road.
As you can see, Tyler is pretty stoked. His friend has actually requested a scarf for himself. This is something I am more than happy to do, as long as he buys the yarn!


  1. He looks really excited about that scarf! :)


  2. That is awesome! I'm inspired to knit one for my son:)
    Take care.
