Every nerd knitter has just one desire, a Doctor Who Scarf! Not ready for something so ambitious, I instead found some neat variegated yarn that made its own stripes.
My last scarf had long, skinny ribs that ran down the length of it and made it curl into a thinner scarf. I wanted to make horizontal ribbing that would make the scarf stretch lengthwise this time.
Size 16 needles
Cast on 42 stitches
Keep repeating until long enough.
The last and next knit row will cause you to have 5 row wide ribs the length of the scarf.
The whole thing ended up being a massive scarf. I had to find a wooden shawl pin just to bundle it up enough to even stay on my neck. I don't know how Doctor Who managed to walk around without getting Isadora Duncanned.
