I am a big Dr Who nerd. The newest companion to the Doctor is Amy Pond, and she has some great clothes (once they got her out of the nightgown).
I decided I wanted something similar to her scarf and gloves. This is what I came up with:
The scarf is super long, over ten feet. I used a cartridge belt rib since it has nice texture, lies flat, and looks great on both sides. That and I was too lazy to tackle the complicated lace pattern that actually is in Amy’s scarf.
And these are my fingerless gloves! They fit, well, like a glove, since I measured the fit on my hands constantly as I knit. Both done with regular acrylic yarn, nothing special.
