Dr Who Scarf Journey begins

I've been set the task of making the Season 12 Dr Who scarf as worn by Tom Baker for my dear brother @fr3cks.

My first challenge was to find similar yarns to match the American ones that I cannot hope to get hold of with my meagre budget. I finally settled on Patons Fab dk and Hayfield/Sirday Bonus dk.

Here are the Shades I settled on:

Sirdar Bonus  DK

Claret       0841
Charcoal   0837

Patons Fab DK

Beige        02331
Yellow      02302
Fern         02341
Red          02323

These colours are as close as match as I could get with exception of the Red. I fear this may be a little too bright a red, but we'll see. I may be fretting for now reason.

I'm putting a scarf o matic bar on my page so you can follow my progress in percentage form. So let the project commence :)
