[FO] Doctor Who scarf.
My boyfriend is a huge Dr Who fan, so I maked him a scarf. It's the one from the... 12th season, I believe? It can be found on www.doctorwhoscarf.com/pattern1.php

It took me all of forever. It's fourteen feet long and pretty wide. Plain ol' Red Heart yarn, except for the purple bits. I don't know what those were, but they were really soft and I had JUUUUST enough yarn for them in the closet.



(He'd just gotten a new suit and didn't want to take it off. :P And don't ask me about the hat, if I ever knew, I've forgotten.)

I love how everyone's like "OMG 14 feet!"

It's supposed to go down to the wearer's ankles if looped like he's wearing it and like how it's worn in the show.

Of course, he has to be 6'2" and I have to be a perfectionist and make it accurate.

14 feet long, if he ever needs to swing from one beam to another, he'll be prepared.

Nice job!
