Thirteen: Doctor Who Scarf 2019 New Years Day Special


Whovians all over the universe are excited by the new scarf being sported by the 13th incarnation of The Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, in this years New Years Day Special sneak peek.

Featuring a vertical rainbow stripe, it is perfect for a crochet translation. Even better it is a great stash busting project.

The colour sequence you need is:

Bright red: chain + 1 row

Deep blood red: 1 row

Dark purple: 4 rows

Light purple: 1 row

Bright pink: 1 row

Peach: 1 row

Dark yellow: 1 row

Yellow: 3 rows

Sage green: 1 row

Green: 1 row

Light teal: 1 row

Teal: 1 row

Dark petrol blue: 1 row

Light blue: 1 row

Ice blue: 1 row

Peacock blue: 1 row

Black: 1 row

Electric blue: 20 rows

Fuschia: 1 row

My stash didn’t have all the shades so I compensated the best I could.

I recommend using moss stitch, which will create a warm close weave scarf with a small overlap between colours.

Moss stitch is created by repeating a sequence of sc1 and ch1 and skp1, subsequent rows the sc1 is worked into the ch1 space of the row below. The last sc1 of each round is worked into the centre of the loop created by the ch2 you do to start each round. If you find it easier a stitch marker can be placed into the centre of this loop to make it easier to identify.

I am using DK yarn and a 4.5mm hook.

Abbreviations:

sc: single crochet

ch: chain

skp: skip

sp: space

Pattern:

ch 252 (or more in even numbers if you would like a longer scarf)

Row 1: sc1 in the 4th ch from the hook, ch1 and skp1, *sc1 and ch1 and skp1* repeat until the last st, sc1, turn

Row 2: ch2, skp1, *sc1 into the next ch1-sp of the row below and ch1 and skp1* repeat until the last st sc1, turn.

Repeat row 2, following the colour sequence suggestions above to create your very own Thirteen Scarf.

When you are finished add tassels of matching colour to the edges of each row.

      The scarf is 130cm x 16cm but can be made longer and wider very easily if you wanted. To make it longer chain more at the start in even numbers and to make it wider I recommend increasing the number of electric blue rows.

    This is beautiful! Are you on Ravelry? I’m working on a knitted version. How long did you make it? The new scarf doesn’t appear as long, although it is wrapped loosely around her neck, so maybe a traditional 60”?

      Thank you I am on Raverly under @MahoganyTurtle. The scarf is 130cm x 16cm but can be made longer and wider very easily if you wanted. To make it longer chain more at the start in even numbers and to make it wider I recommend increasing the number of electric blue rows.
