Designed for the Yarnover Truck and Apple Tree Knits Nerd Club, this shawl is inspired by a photo of the 10th Doctor (my favorite) and his companion, Rose. I completely nerded out over the design of this shawl by working increases on rows that are multiples of 10 and stitch patterns that are worked over a multiple of 10 stitches. Mock cables represent the interconnectedness of The Doctor and Rose and the loopy bind off is a knitted display of the movement of the Tardis through time and space. I hope you have as much fun nerding out over this design as I did!
