10 Doctor Who Patterns to Crochet While Watching the New Year Special

It's been all change this year for that British TV sci-fi classic, Doctor Who. Not only did the 13th version of the Doctor become female – played by the frankly brilliant Jodie Whittaker – but instead of having a Christmas special, we'll have to wait until January 1st 2019 instead. Still, it's a great way to welcome in the New Year – plus an opportunity to sneak in a bit of crochet as you watch! Here's our round-up of projects you can be working on, whilst peeping out from behind the sofa...

10 Doctor Who Patterns to Crochet While Watching the New Year Special

1. The 13th Doctor

Last Christmas, we saw Peter Capaldi's Doctor regenerate into Jodie Whittaker – since then, she hit the ground running during her first series with her dazzling performance. Heather Taylor of Daisy and Storm has immortalised Jodie's time-travelling hero in crochet form, complete with her rainbow stripe T-shirt and long hooded coat! Find the pattern here.

2. The TARDIS

There have been many different Doctors but one thing they all share in common is the TARDIS! Disguised as an old-fashioned police box, it is in fact the Doctor's ship that can travel through time and space. HeartofGoldPlate of Army of Owls has created this terrific mini version, although we can't confirm whether it's bigger on the inside... Find the pattern here.

3. Sonic Screwdriver

Another thing that the Doctor is rarely without is, of course, their sonic screwdriver. This handy little gadget is like a high-tech Swiss Army knife that gets you out of all kinds of scrapes. Louis Mensinger of Louie's Loops has created a spot-on pattern based on the one owned by the 10th Doctor, played by David Tennant. Find the pattern here.

4. Daleks

They may look like giant pepper pots but the Daleks are the Doctor's greatest enemy, returning time and again with their cries of 'Exterminate!' At least Lucy Collins' amigurumi pattern, based on the classic 1970s grey and black design and the later bronze and gold version, will be much safer to have around the house. Find the pattern here.

5. Adipose

One of the newer, and bizarrely cute Doctor Who monsters, the Adipose were supposedly the ultimate weight-loss solution, transforming human fat into little white baby aliens. Personally we'd rather stick to a healthy diet, while crocheting Jennifer Christensen's adorable amigurumi version instead. Find the pattern here.

6. Weeping Angel

Another more recent, but decidedly more scary enemy! The Weeping Angels look like immobile stone statues unless no-one is looking at them... is it our imagination or have they moved a little bit closer? Shirley MacDonald's amigurumi pattern recreates an Angel covering its face, but it's perfectly safe – just don't blink! Find the pattern here.

7. The 4th Doctor's Scarf

The Doctors may be different versions of the same person, but they all have their own unique outfits. The 4th Doctor, played by Tom Baker during the 1970s, was known for his immensely long, stripy scarf – although the original was knitted, Sandra Petit has created this authentic-looking crochet version. Find the pattern here.

8. The 11th Doctor's Fez

Speaking of interesting accessories, who could forget Matt Smith's 11th Doctor who declared that “Fezzes are cool now”? He'd probably approve of this pattern created by Denise Plourde of Irish Lace, even though it's not actually designed for wearing – it is in fact a rather nifty toilet roll cover! Find the pattern here.

9. Mini Doctors

Thanks to time travel, it's been possible for different versions of the Doctor to meet now and again – during the 50th anniversary special, we even saw 12 of them team up to save the day! Nyss Parkes of Pixelated Mushroom has created several amigurumi versions, so you can crochet your favourite or make them all. Find the pattern here.

10. TARDIS Bag

Whenever someone walks into the seemingly tiny TARDIS and gapes at the huge space within, we've often thought “I wish I had a bag like that!” This TARDIS crochet handbag by Jessica Evans on the Happy Hooker blog can probably only fit so much inside, but who cares when it looks so cute? Find the pattern here.

Be The Change: 7 Ways To Knit & Crochet For Charity

Crochet Zodiac - Capricorn
Crochet Zodiac - Capricorn

Welcome to our first Crochet Zodiac, which this month is devoted to Capricorn! Those born under this sign are known for being practical, patient and disciplined – all very useful traits when embarking on a new project. You ensure you've got all the right yarns and tools first, plus you'll read the pattern at least twice before starting, rather than risk any mistakes. What's more, you're always working hard to improve your skills so you can move on to more advanced techniques, and won't give up on a project once it's started. However, you Capricorns can sometimes be your own harshest critics, feeling that you're not doing as much or as well as you should. You can also be quite shy, but crafters are a friendly bunch – why not seek out a local crochet group or join an online community such as Ravelry? Not only will you be able to ask for advice if you get stuck – and share your own tips in return – you'll get to make new friends who share your passion! In the meantime, why not treat yourself to something special from our list below...
