My brother-in-law is a huge Doctor Who fan, and so when I found this pattern, there was no question that it would be his gift. I ended up adapting the pattern quite a bit to make it fit.
- I increased the amount of stitches in the top quite a bit
- I increased sooner on the thumb and made one extra row
- I went longer before switching to the brown/yellow lines
Overall, he loves them. When he opened the box, it was covered with an image of a Dalek yelling "INSULATE!" which, for you Doctor Who fans, was just the icing on the cake.
