“A galactic collection to knit and sew!”

The Doctor Who Pattern Book by Joy Gammon was published in 1984 and featured all kinds of weird and wonderful things to knit and sew.

“The Doctor Who Pattern Book contains a terrific variety of clothes, toys, cushions, bags and other desirable objects to knit and sew based on the ever popular BBC Television programmes.
The K9 shoulder bag, the TARDIS sleeping bag and the console floor cushion are just a few examples of Joy Gammon’s fertile imagination, and Romana’s sailor top, Adric’s anorak, and Peter Davison’s cricket jumper are destined to be fashion favourites for years to come.
The patterns are clearly and simply explained — there is even a How-to-Knit section with straightforward diagrams for the complete beginner — and the book is well illustrated with line drawings and 24 pages of colour photographs.”


Toys And Objects

My favourite object/toy and indeed photo is the cuddly yeti and furry action man on a day trip out in the cushiony TARDIS. I’m quite taken by the K9 shoulder bag and celery brooch (shown in the garments section), and the TARDIS door tidy look nifty too!

Garments

Adric’s tunic could come in useful, but sailor tops are wrong in any universe. Sadly, there were no photos of Tegan’s boob tube. The Starburst jumper sounds great, but no photos of that either.
