for all the Whovians out there
For some reason my pictures are sideways. Hopefully your necks don't get too sore :s
This was my first time making a pattern and I really enjoyed it. So here goes:

I used:
- a 5 mm hook
- worsted weight yarn in blue, black, and white

Stitches used:
ch: chain
hdc: half double crochet
hdc2tog: half double crochet two together, or decrease
inc.: 2 hdc in one stitch
sl: slip stitch
