yay, it is finished!!!
Jacob's Dr Who Season 16 Scarf
The original scarf was knitted in garter stitch,
but when I started this scarf back in May I was nervous about making such a long scarf on two needles...silly really, but that was before all of my recent knitting practice.
So I decided to make it in Tunisian Crochet in Purl stitch.
The Tunisian purl is a good stitch and easy to work, but it does curl and needs to be blocked and pressed to get it to sit flat and even then I think it will still curl when my son wears it. I am pleased I have learnt Tunisian Purl Stitch but I wouldn’t use it for another scarf.
It is long....really long
I haven't measured it yet, I will add the measurement soon.
I can tell you it weighs approx 665gms, and is 100% acrylic
Here is a picture of the scarf folding down our internal staircase and our inquisitive cat which gives you an idea of the length.
Here are some useful links if you feel brave enough to create your own Dr Who scarf
oh and I just have to share this clever youtube
it makes me smile :)
have a happy day
