[My mom got them after her older brother's girl-friend (BACK IN THE '80s) wrote for them and had them sent to her. Then he had his mom (my grandmother:granny:,) make it for him. After making it once she told my mom that she would have to make it her-self to get one, and she's had them ever since.]

Thank you for posting this!

I'm currently knitting the scarf, and about halfway done, so it's really getting about time I finally fav'd the instructions!

However, I didn't follow them too strictly and instead mixed in some of the ("original" scarf) instructions from doctorwhoscarf.com ; they added +2 for most rows, and according to them there's also an additional piece of grey in there somewhere (14 grey between the 12 green and 8 mustard). They also claim that the scarf is 66 rows wide, while only the stunt version has 60 rows. But since I started out with 60 rows, there was no way(and no point) in going up to 66 afterwards. The thing's getting big enough as it is, anyway.
Found some lovely colors in a local store that match really well, too. Except for the purple, which I just couldn't find in the quality needed so I replaced it with a night blue instead. I'm not entirely happy about that, but at least there's not a whole lot of purple in there.

Really lovely piece of clothing by the way. I can see myself wearing it all winter :D
I'll return with a link to the finished thing once I'm done! ;)

Also, all the existing comments here really helped me to get started, too. Thanks guys!

Well you are welcome. I don't have an idea of what it should look like exactly as you probably have gather from the comments as we just put it up as a way to help people so they could make the scarf as it is the BBC Instructions for it. I am glad that you read the other comments too since there is a lot of helpful info for making the scarf that has been gathered there as well. But mostly I would be happy to see the results of your hard work.

Oh, I will! :D

Ah, maybe I should also mention -while i'm still commenting- that the page wittylittleknitter.com does not exist anymore.
I take my knitting advice from my mom, so I wouldn't know of a worthy replacement online - but maybe someone else has a good idea.

Ah well that is good for other people to know at least. It is also aright if you just want to leave a comment for others to hopefully see so they may have some good advice. I do not mind people helping each other out at all so go for it if you want to.

Here's the photo of my result, for those that seek to compare or to know what to expect. :)
The two main differences to other results are most likely that I used a night blue as a replacement for the purple bits,
and this scarf is "unblocked", so not stretched, length as-is after knitting.

That scarf is fun to knit.
Takes ages, but the yarn and needles are thick enough for it to feel quick, it's thin enough so you don't have to wait for a Hoth-like winter, and the colour-switches are making knitting it almost addictive.
"Just five more rows, then I'm done with red. First line purple... Ah, it's just eight lines, I can do that quickly..."

Did it a while ago, probably not exactly to these instructions, I used a PDF from doctorwhoscarf dot com.
Actually two, started with a later scarf version, season 15/16 or so, but used way too thick yarn. Stopped at about two thirds of the stripes, since I was already at twelve feet or so.
Knitted a new one with more accurate yarn last year, following the pattern for the season 12 scarf. But of course, the shop didn't have the right colours, so I improvised. But hey, twelve-foot scarf for twenty bucks.
Now that you mention it I don't think I've taken a picture yet...

O_O Well you should at least take a photo for yourself. My mom got one knitted by her grandma but due to her moving she lost it and would of lest liked a photo of it. It would be sad if you lost yours after all that work and nothing to show you did it.

Good point.
And I actually found a picture. Took it as a joke last year, when the scarf was still new.
I thought, "How many fandoms can I offend in one picture?", so I wore as many different things as I could.
The scarf was one of them.
Uploaded it to DeviantART just now.
colonel-azzameen.deviantart.co…
The scarf has stretched quite a bit since that picture.
Instead of just brushing the floor (plus tassels), there's now a good six inches flopping next to my feet on both sides. Wearing that thing is art.

It at least looked good then, I bet even stretched out it still looks good as well. I can also easily imagine that it's hard to wear being so long :XD: good luck not tripping on it.

It still looks the same, actually.
And I'm cheating a bit when I wear it.
When it's cold, and I need it around my neck, I wear it similar to a scene in Genesis of the Daleks, with the lower halves swung over my right shoulder.
When it's not cold, and I'm just wearing it because I want to, I wear it like in Destiny of the Daleks, slung low so the coil and ends are at the same height.
For now, that's around knee-height. Probably will stretch longer, but that only adds to the excentricity.

Depends on how tightly you knit it. It you have a really tight knit it can be about 10 feet long. I you have a lose knit it can be 18 feet long. So 10 to 18 feet long depending on your knit.

Yay!  Finally a pattern.  I just have one quick question.  On top where the requirements are, are those numbers next to the colors the number of balls/skeins you need?  Like 3 balls of purple?

My grandmother is making this for me, she's almost finished. I resized a little bit for her (less rows of each color, cast on 40 stitches instead of 60) because I'm really small and this scarf is reaaaally big, and my poor grandma is 83 years old XD But is getting so awasome! I'll post a photo when it's finished. Is so big I'm pretty sure I can cocoon myself inside and grow TimeLord wings :3

I am knitting the scarf following the pattern you put up, I do have 1 question though. If there are 7 tassles each end and each tassle made with 1x1inch strand of all 7 colors how the heck do I join them on to the end of the scarf? this bit isn't covered in the pattern and instructions. Need to know as I'm almost ready to do them and it's only taken 3wks.

I honestly I have never tried to knit this scarf, I just put the pattern up to be helpful to other cosplayers. That said, I think you are supposed to bundle the yarn, fold it in half, put the loop threw the scarf end, then the tassel ends threw that loop end. wittylittleknitter.com/ is a better resource for knitting information, or maybe www.doctorwhoscarf.com/. Both are great resources that have better information than myself on knitting matters. My skill level is very basic and relies on my grandmother for help when she is available. Sorry I am not more informative, but I hope that the two websites have the information you need.

Well the second link was no help but according to the advice and help on first link the tassles are supposed to be done with 12inch strands of all 7 colors so now I'm confusded.

Thank You! For links, knew how it is normally done but because the strands are so short only supposed to be one inch long and to combine 7 colors thought maybe it needed to be done in a special way. will look at links if no help there I'll experiment I'm good at puzzles lol! Thanks again for the links.

I was looking at the pattern again for the tassel lengths, and 1' is one foot or 12 inches, 1" would be one inch. It might be hard to read on the post. Maybe that makes it less confusing?
