Oi! Watch It Spaceman! (Doctor Who Inspired Socks)

Released Monday, 25-May-2015, to the members of the Doctor Who Companions Sock Club ~ 3rd Edition (Summer 2015)

As of Wednesday, 18-November-2015, the pattern is available for purchase.


On the heels of my other Doctor Who inspired sock patterns (Rescue Me, Chin Boy, and Show Me the Stars, Socks For Ten, Spoilers Socks, Come Along Pond Socks, Soufflé Girl Socks, Nice to Meet You Rose Socks, Hello, I’m Captain Jack Harkness Socks, K-9 Says Affirmative Socks, & Can Missy Say Something Nice? Socks), I am super excited to have collaborated with Julia of Pandia’s Jewels on another series of Doctor Who companions inspired socks. This pattern is inspired by the Doctor’s sharp tongued companion, Donna Noble.

There are 2 design elements in this pattern. First is the cable panel on the outside of each sock. There are points where the cable crosses like when Donna travels with the Doctor. But there are also points where the cable is parallel, much as Donna lives her life parallel to the Doctor, unable to actually be with him. Second is Forget Me Not flowers. After the events which caused the Doctor Donna to emerge, the Doctor was forced to remove any memory of himself and their travels together from her mind lest the memories kill Donna. As much as the Doctor would like Donna to not forget him, she must to save her life.

Oi! Watch It Spaceman! Happy Knitting!


These socks are knit using the magic loop method (although the purchaser could easily adapt it for two circulars or double points).

Judy’s Magic Cast On and Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off are used in this pattern.

The knitter needs to be comfortable with the following techniques: knit, purl, ktbl, M1R, M1L, p2tog, yo, W+T, & cables. Instructions for all these techniques are included in the pattern. In addition, video tutorials for the shadow wrap technique of W+T for short rows and for the Forget Me Not stitch have been recorded by the designer and the links are provided with this pattern.

This pattern includes instructions in both written and chart forms for 56 stitch, 64 stitch, and 72 stitch socks.

I’d like to express my immense gratitude to the creators of Doctor Who for their entertaining work. This design would never have been possible without their inspiration.

Huge thanks to my amazing test knitters: Amy (knitnmom), Andrea (angeiship), Cristy (cristyray), Susan (clucks), and Tracy (phoenixfire). ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
