Knit Your Own Doctor Who Scarf with Instructions Straight from the BBC!

In the annals of pop culture couture, the extraordinary scarf worn by the Fourth Doctor on Doctor Who stands out as a triumph of both whimsicality and comfy-ness. Luckily for us non-Gallifreyans, the BBC was kind enough to release a pattern, so you can knit your own!

A cosplayer named 93Fangshadow received the instructions from their mother, who in turn received them from her mother. And, weirdly, a second Whovian named Carjacker posted a similar pattern after his grandmother recreated the scarf back in the 1980s. If you’re looking for a new knitting project (or if your grandmother is) click through!
