A knit-look print design which can be used to make a really long scarf
This is a HUGE design; if you tile up the columns of one yard of fabric, you'll end up with a 129.25 inches (no typo - almost one hundred thirty inches!) long scarf; with a design repeat of 41.88 x 36.00 inches.
That's at least the size for fabric; if you order this as wallpaper, the repeat is 24.07 x 20.69 inches - considerably smaller - sorry, that's the wallpaper width restriction.
If you want a two-sided scarf, you have to order two yards of it (because the scarf width would be too narrow if you would just fold the 'columns' over).
I have another version of this design, which has the design in 'one length' (which means you have to order four yards to get a full repeat!) - you can find it here.
You can easily see where to tile the scarf up if you look at the one yard view (by clicking the corresponding radio button on the right) - if you look near the first (left) knit column's bottom, you'll see a yellow stripe (at approximately 32-34 inches) - that stripe repeats at the top of the next column to the right; and so on.
Also click the 'Swatch' button to see the details; particularly of the 'knit' look.
The design LOOKS knit, but that knit is actually just printed (on whatever kind of fabric you chose on the right - I recommend either Cotton Poplin or Organic Cotton Sateen, since on those, the colors print best).
This is a perfect alternative for fourth Doctors who, for whatever reason, don't want to carry the weight of a real knit scarf - or for female doctors who want parts of their dresses to *look* like knit, but don't have the patience to do it (or the power to carry that weight - and yes, I have a certain person in mind who gave me the idea for this design) ;-)
Please also have a look at my other 'blue box' themed designs in the collection which I set up for them!

"The tale behind Tom Baker’s infamously long scarf is no secret. The original designs for the costume simply showed that the Doctor needed a scarf of regular length. A lovely lady known as Begonia Pope was hired to knit the scarf and was delivered a selection of colours of wool to choose from however when the production team arrived several weeks later, the poor woman had used all of it! The scarf went around Tom Baker several times, but the production team decided to keep it." I bought this fabric, but I still haven't gotten around to assembling it, but I will some day.

How wrinkled does the cotton poplin get?
