Modification Monday: Paper Daleks Sept. 12


Original Pattern: Paper Dolls

Knitter Extraordinaire: Rebecca (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Charted out a whole new colourwork yoke to feature the main characters (and the famous daleks) of Doctor Who- Including charting out text, which is tricky! Project page is here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love it when people really personalize their knits, and what better way to personalize than with a colourwork version of a beloved TV show?! I think this is such a clever use of colourwork, and it's not often I see text in knits, either- another reason to love this one-of-a-kind pullover. Just so awesome.

I think that gal's got a future in designing knitwear with colorwork. Just awesome!

That is fantastic. But really hoping my Dr. Who friend that I just knit a Tardis hat for doesn't see it -- my queue is already to full and I've yet to add some holiday knits! ;-)

Is it possible to post a full pattern for us knitting n00bs?

Awesome mod! I actually just added Dr. Who to my Instant queue. I've been meaning to get started on the series forever. I want to be in on it!

Oh. My. Goodness. I can't knit to save my life, but I may try just to own these sweaters and dolls...or, by any chance, will you be selling them (*hoping beyond hope*)?
