The costume designers on Doctor Who are messing with us.

I am accustomed to seeing every piece of knitwear in every movie or TV show reverse-engineered and the pattern posted on Ravelry within days.

Amy's scarf from Doctor Who? No dice. ?!? Doctor Who knitters are obsessive. Just do a search on Ravelry on the term "Dalek". Or "TARDIS". But no Amy's scarf. Well, that makes no sense.

I poked around.

OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

IT IS DIFFERENT SCARVES.

Screencaps show several different red scarves that all look very similar from a distance, and yet are all totally different, just the same color and length. In Vincent and the Doctor, her scarf is lace. In The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, horseshoe cables.

?!?!

On the plus side, I think this means I can just knit any pattern I like for Elayna in that shade of red in about that length and just say "she wore that one between episodes". But still.

Me: "Yes."
Adam: "I don't care anymore."
Me: :P)

(No, I will not knit you a Tom Baker scarf.)
