A friend wants a Doctor Who scarf, so I dug up the pattern for Season 12 by Tara Carstenson/Wheeler. I love this pattern. I made a Season 14 scarf for my brother a few years ago. It’s easy and it gets really fun when it goes over 5 feet long! This one will pass the 6 foot mark, I think.
There are a ton of color changes though, and to minimize sewing in all those ends I weave them in as I go. I use a technique similar to this link.
The scarf takes a lot of yarn though, and I wanted to find a way to save some money and not sacrifice the colors or the quality. Enter Knit Picks! I found all but one color there, for less than $35 (not including shipping). I already have the needles.
I’m using these yarns:
Brava Worsted Yarn – Almond x2
Brava Worsted Yarn – Brindle
Brava Worsted Yarn – Cobblestone Heather x2
Brava Worsted Yarn – Dublin x2
Brava Worsted Yarn – Paprika
Wool of the Andes Worsted Yarn – Currant
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Solids, Heathers & Twists: Mustard Item #158
(I just couldn’t find the right yellow on Knit Picks, so I got the one I knew would work! I orginally bought Brava in Caution-but it’s very bright. Maybe I can make some long fingerless gloves for biking.)
I even have the perfect project bag.
