31st-Oct-2014 03:01 pm - Request: Four's Argyle Cardigan
Baker
Hi

I'm searching for a witty knitter who would be willing to take on a commission of knitting Tom Baker's Argyle Cardigan from Season 12.

Thanks to Gene fender of DWS I have patterns and can buy all the yarn needed. No research really required here just the tools and skill.

If you're up for this and have a quote for your time/labor please post or PM me!

I beg everyone will forgive me if this and any subsequent posts are a bit roughly done. This is my first time posting on Livejournal or attempting to demonstrate anything like this.

For the past year I have been working on a ridiculously, needlessly tedious screen-accurate pattern for the Season 16/17 Doctor Who scarf.

Finished 16-17

Stay tuned for the instructions for the first half.

11th-Feb-2013 06:22 pm - Knitting Conundrum
Hello. I am having a bit of a problem. I knitted what I am calling my prototype Doctor Who scarf using the pattern found on wittylittleknitter.com Season 12. Now I am the type of person to be unable to read patterns well.

Here is what I did for the pattern for my first go around. I used Vanna's Choice yarn, knitted 42 stitches instead of the 35 called for and doubled the yarn (what I mean by this is instead of using one string of one colour I used two strings of one colour). This made the scarf more bulky but it seemed right in my eyes. This time I am trying to stick more to the pattern but am finding that as I try to follow it I am confusing myself.

For starters I am only using one string of yarn instead of two (which makes the scarf seem very flimsy). So is the scarf supposed to be flimsy. Secondly, I am a little confused on the mention that you need to double the stitches. If I just use one string of yarn then when I read I need three rows for example should it them be six? I am posting a picture of the prototype scarf. If anyone can help me read the pattern from wittylittleknitter and understand it would greatly settle my second guessing. Thanks Prototype Doctor Who Scarf

I am looking for anyone willing to share Dr Who crochet patterns. I am an intermediate crocheter and would love to make something for my fiance for Christmas. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Just to let you know I started a little group for all of us who Knit Four scarves, and I'm extending an open invitation to anyone who has knitted one, who has even considered knitting one, even if you have bought one or had one made for you on commission or by friends and family. Share your pics, your wool suggestions, tips, or even if you’re contemplating doing four and want to know how to make or get an excellent scarf, this is the place for you.

16th-Apr-2012 07:22 pm - Variations on a scarf
Ten Doll
Hello fellow crafters/knitters/crocheters! I've had an influx of versions of the 4th Doctor's scarf flow from my crochet hook over the last few months and I thought I'd share them. :)


[A commissioned long version...]
A commissioned long version (with colors chosen by the recipient and some handy Doctors snagged for a photo-op)





[A scarf for everyday winter wear]
For my own use, a half length version that I wore about this winter





[A doll with what may be the smallest crochet version fo this scarf...]
And my newest little doll featuring what may be the smallest crochet version of the 4th Doctor's original scarf pattern. (Also a commissioned piece)




While I enjoyed wearing a Doctor Who scarf around and about this winter, I think the doll version is my favorite. ^_^
I haven't seen any new posts here in a while, but I'd like to let you know that I am accepting commissions for the Season 19 Peter Davison sweater via Etsy.

Hi!! 

I've been stalking this comm for a while  (sorry I'm a bit shy), I'm a self taught beginner knitter and right now I'm working on a sweater for my dog because I think she won't mind if I mess it up a little :)... Well for my next project I'm thinking about the famous season 12 Tom Baker scarf  but also I'd like to try to knit Rose's scarf from Boomtown, I was wondering if any of you knew where I could find a pattern for that scarf (Rose's)  and the colors of the yarn? :)  and maybe any advise for both the Doctor's and Rose's scarfs? 

:)  Thanks!! 
27th-Oct-2011 09:54 am - Frustration with my Davison Sweater
After getting sidetracked by commissions for three Baker scarves which made me sick of them, I started back up on my Davison sweater this past week. Noticing a bunch of problems with my pattern, I set aside the start of my first and began a new one. But then when I checked the reference pics on my computer again, I noticed this close-up from the Doctor Who Experience courtesy of dondragmer and I made some notes from what I saw. (Click for the full-size image to see the notes)


So, the bad news is that I've started on two sweaters only to realise that I had gotten my pattern fundamentally wrong. The good news, is that now I have the right basic pattern for the main body of the sweater, and am therefore one step closer to screen accurate, although I'm not starting over again until I'm sure of more details.

For now, I'm going to continue knitting the main body and write an updated pattern before doing anything with the sleeves. Here's the two pieces of information I need for my pattern:

1) Is the jumper knitted on straight or circular needles? The best shot I can get of the sides, where a seam would normally be, is in Terminus Part 4, between 11:15 and 11:20 (just before and while the Doctor says 'Right, let's go.'), but I don't have the DVD so it's hard to tell with the video quality. Does anyone with the DVD have a good clear screenshot that would answer this quandary?

2) How many rows of ribbing do I need for the waistline and neckline of the sweater? If anyone is going to the Doctor Who Experience soon, could you please take a pic for me? Please and thank you!

Here's four of the five scarves I've made over the course of the last year:

Scarf pics...Collapse )
Aside from the Season 12, which is my sentimental favourite because it was the first I'd ever made, all of my scarves have been sold. The three others pictured were commissioned by my aunt in California, and an identical Season 14 was commissioned by my girlfriend's professor. After over 50 feet of scarves in a year, I'm not making any more for a LONG time.

...Okay, hands up, who watched "Closing Time" and went, "...I have got to knit that"? :)

Just me, then?

(Well, they were originally something that the marketing department came up with to spin-off as toys... ;) )

Psmith
Someone asked about this pattern a long time ago, and I've finally gotten around to writing it up and posting it. Just in time for winter!

This was a really fun pattern to create. Stranded knitting in the round was a new experience for me, but fairly simple once I got the knack of keeping my floats loose. And the double-layered result is SO snuggly and warm!



Pattern on my website here, Ravelry link here. Enjoy!

8th-Sep-2011 02:38 pm - Proclaiming the love with Crochet
Doll
So I just found out about this group through a fellow whovian's LJ and I thought I'd inrtoduce myself and share in the Doctor Who love. ^_^ Been crocheting since I was about 8, but have only truly been active with crafting things for the last 5 years. After getting bored with scarfs and clothes, I finally gave in a decided to try the amigurumi trend and I think I've found a talent in my take on it. Then once I saw Doctor Who this spring, well, it didn't take long until I started churning out these:

The 9th DoctorCollapse )
The 10th DoctorCollapse )
The 11th DoctorCollapse )
The 8th DoctorCollapse )

That's all the Doctors I've made so far, but I have designs to make all of them before the year is out. And a Time Lord couldn't travel without his....
TARDISCollapse )

Last is the small amount of other characters I've made so far. Several New Who companions and a Dalek are in the planning/designing stages still.

Rose TylerCollapse )
CybermanCollapse )
Weeping AngelCollapse )

Sorry this is so image heavy. I scaled down the pictures to help compensate for that hopefully without loosing any detail quality. Anyway I hope you enjoy and I look forward to seeing all the lovely projects you fellow knitters/crocheters will post in the future!

How to make a scarf go really really fast: use bulky wool and scale down the dimensions to acknowledge that you're a foot shorter than Tom Baker.

How to make a scarf go really really slow again: teach yourself to knit plaid and polka dots from first principles.

jamie
Hi everyone.

I'm knitting myself a blanket with Doctor Who motives.

I started spinning on a wheel last year and still learing different technics. Since with every new technic there is a learing curv I have a lot of "not really balanced or preety"-yarn. With this yarn, dyed green, I'm knitting said blanket.

I already used the TARDIS- and Dalek-Dishcloth patterns, but obviously needed more.

Pics of all four so far:Collapse )

So I charted a "Seal of Rassilon" and a "Cybermen"-Dishcloth and you can download the pattern here:

Cyberman: download now

Seal of Rassilon: download now

Both patterns are written and charted.

16th-Jul-2011 06:19 pm - TARDIS socks!
wool
Hi all,

I found the TARDIS socks pattern on Ravelry and just had to make a pair for a friend.

I used some rather cheap vari-coloured sock yarn and some black and white yarns I had in my stash.
Very pleased with the result: under the cutCollapse )
4th-Jul-2011 02:12 pm - TARDIS fingerless gloves!
Chrissy: Glittery Lips
Awhile back I shared a pair of TARDIS socks I knit and mentioned how I was also knitting a pair of TARDIS fingerless gloves for a friend. Well, they're done and here they are!

*wooshing TARDIS appearing noise*Collapse )

I have a knitting blog on Tumblr, if anyone is interested in following me. I'm also on Ravelry as tricycles. I love making new crafty friends. :)
24th-Jun-2011 01:26 pm - Fezzes are cool mitts
drwho david tennant
Hi lovelies,
it's been ages since I checked in with a Doctor Who project, but finally inspiration came and made me laugh out loud. I just had to write this up.

“It’s a fez, I wear a fez now… Fezzes are cool”
Flip top mitts featuring Matt Smith’s bowtie and favourite fez. Mitts flip towards front of hand & fasten with buttons so as not to obscure bowtie

Pattern PDF can be found here

fez mitts image

I'd been meaning to create flip top mitts for a while, but wasn't sure of a theme. Then I saw a couple of stencil style images that just showed Matt Smith's bowtie and fez and the idea of featuring these on some mitts came to mind.

I hope they make you laugh too - and that they could be handy for Doctor Who swaps and the like!

14th-Jun-2011 10:42 am - Scarves for Doctors beside Four?
Four Dalek friends
I was wondering if anyone has a pattern for a scarf that is based on a Doctor other than Four. I've knitted two smaller versions of his scarf, but would like to do at least one for another Doctor. Since I'm still pretty new to knitting and am not good at improvising, I thought it would be best to ask if anyone here has a pattern for a scarf based on the clothing of a different Doctor. I looked through the tags and didn't notice any patterns like this.

Hello there.
I have watched this community for some time but wanted to wait until I had finished my first project - yes, the scarf - until I posted something.
But since I´m easily distracted and work on many projects simultaneously, I have more things to share, including armwarmers, another scarf, the beginning of a scarf and two tams of Rassilon

THE ScarfCollapse )

The Tams of RassilonCollapse )


The other scarfCollapse )

The following projects are a bit subtler in their approach, but no less geeky.

1st-Jun-2011 04:11 pm - tardis patterned scarf!
I just recently started knitting about two weeks ago and just finished a tardis patterned loop scarf. I was wondering if any of you guys could give comments/advice/ideas for it? I'm still pretty new to knitting and unsure if it's all right.

see it here!
27th-Apr-2011 10:35 pm - Can You Crochet Four's Scarf?
Martha
Does a crochet pattern for the scarf exist or do crocheters just improvise their own? For anyone that has attempted the project before, is it harder or easier to crochet the scarf than knitting it?
