Doctor Who Knitting: 10th Doctor Headband

Doctor Who knit headband by H3Dakota

Who else is counting down the days to the premiere of the next season of Doctor Who? If your fingers are itching to get geek-crafty as you wait, check out H3Dakota’s 10th Doctor-inspired knit headband.

Using the brioche knitting stitch, she made a reversible headband – “One side looks like his brown suit while the other looks like his blue suit,” she wrote.

So are you a fan of 10? Or is another “your Doctor?” (David Tennant is my personal fav.)
