I’ve posted before about the project of making a 4th Doctor long scarf (The Long, Long Scarf, Part 2 and Part 3). I remember seeing a comparison chart for the various incarnations of the Doctor’s scarf so you can see the various lengths and stripe differences. I can’t find that exact thing now, but in the process I did trip over this handy little tool to help you track the progress of your own scarf project, and this page accomplishes precisely the same thing I wanted.
I’ve almost run out of steam on my “inspired by” scarf project. This is the scarf that doesn’t conform to any official pattern and has lots of mistakes in it, as it’s what I’ve been learning how to knit upon. One thing I have learned is that the typical 60- or 66-stitch widths are way too wide for my liking. When I do my special scarf, it will have the right stripes and length but perhaps half or two thirds the width.
Here again are links to what look to me to be the two most useful sites about making the long, long scarf:
