The Fourth Doctor’s scarf is an iconic item of Whovianism. It is THE scarf, a scarf only the Doctor (or very serious Whovians) would wear, galavanting through space and time!
In Australia’s climate, even in the middle of winter, such a scarf is overkill. It simply does not get THAT cold. And when you only have about 4-6 weeks of what we would consider “cold” weather (I hear it is the equivalent of Autumn/Fall in some places), how often would you get to wear it?
Then I saw this. Isn’t it divine!? It’s the perfect amount of Whovian for every day wear! This one was made with a loom. I don’t have a loom. But I do l know how to do square stitch. The beaders basic stitch. So I gathered supplies. My bead colours aren’t perfect matches for the original scarf, but they are the perfect colours to be indicative of the original, whilst still coordinating with a more “me” colour palette.
And off I went. Bead, stitch, bead, stitch, bead, stitch … you get the idea.
I’m still NOWHERE near finished, but I do plan on having it done by the 50th Anniversary in November.
