Tara Wheeler's Season Twelve Scarf

Tara Wheeler’s Season Twelve Scarf

I make no secret of my love of all things nerdy and fandom-related, so a few years back I decided I needed to make a Fourth Doctor Scarf. Diligently I researched and found the perfect yarn, and found a website entitled Witty Little Knitter by Tara Wheeler (I can no longer find the site, but her Ravelry is still operational.) If you don’t know, Tom Baker wore several versions of the scarf over his term as the Doctor, but for my scarf I settled on Season Twelve.

New Pattern: Snow Drop Cowl

This is the prettiest thing I’ve ever designed, if I do say so myself (and I can so I shall!). The Snow Drop cowl is knit up quickly with large needles, so there’s no worrying about time constraints. You could easily make it in a few hours.

No BB-Hate Hat

Knit this colorful hat – based on BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens – to let everyone know that you love all Star Wars fans, regardless of how many movies they’ve seen or books they’ve read.

Tassels are in Cowl

A new pattern is available on my Ravelry Store, the Tassels are in Cowl. Its a very nice, very simple knit rectangle with tassels sewn along the bottom edge. Knit on large needles and holding two strands of yarn together this knits up surprisingly quickly. I made mine in one evening while watching the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with my mother.

Knitting Pattern: Sea Witch Cowl

Look how squishy it is, how can you not love?

Look how squishy it is, how can you not love?

I’ve added a new cowl to my Ravelry Store! I call it the Sea Witch Cowl and it’s designed for that thick, squishy yarn that you bought on impulse and don’t know what to do with. Knit loose and on large needles for a fast and stretchy cowl that is very variable. Drape once around your neck for a simple and warm look, or wrap twice and around your head for a cowl with a hood.

sw 1I really had a lot of fun making this, I carried it to school on several days (it squishes down in bags, and is simple stockinette stitch, so it’s easy to work on during class) and my friends all loved the texture and feel of the yarn, Cottage Comfort. I also recommend it for things like movie theaters and car rides, times when you don’t want to need to focus too terribly much.
