TARDIS as far as the eye can see

The TARDIS, or Time and Relative Dimention in Space, is the Doctor's time machine and spacecraft, allowing him to travel through time and space. While it's exterior may look like a blue police box, I assure you it's definitely much bigger on the inside. The blue box is an iconic image for Doctor Who fans everywhere.

  • TARDIS Crochet Chart: This free crochet chart can help you add the TARDIS to one of your crochet designs. Perfect for hats and beanies.
  • TARDIS Purse: Carry the TARDIS with you always, with this colorful purse pattern.
  • TARDIS Scarf: This scarf pattern features the words Police Public Call Box in white, and is very reminiscent of the TARDIS and the Doctor. Works out to be 25 rows wide x 153 rows long. Pattern can be doubled for an extra long scarf.
  • TARDIS Blanket Chart: This crochet blanket chart is located on a Swedish site, but you don't need to know another language to decipher this chart. (If you want to know what the site says, allow Google to translate it for you.) Follow the links below the image to the free PDF pattern.

Aliens and Monsters

Doctor Who wouldn't be complete without it's cast of aliens and monsters. So weird and creepy, they get under our skin and are the ones we love to hate. Why not immortalize your favorite Dr. Who alien or monster in crochet?

  • Dalek Amigurumi Pattern: Exterminate! You'll be shouting this all day while you whip up this classic 1970s Dalek in amigurumi form. Who said a Dalek couldn't be cute? Available as a free Ravelry download, you must have a Ravelry account to access this pattern.
