Holiday Who - a colorway question  
I've been invited to a party with the theme "Holidaze in Spacetime" and immediately thought of doing a Christmas-themed Tom Baker scarf, using the half-scale patterns from Illuminated Spaces. A Season 18 scarf lends itself nicely to a red/white/green palette, having only three colors to begin with, but I'm not sure it would be as immediately recognizable for what it's meant to be. I tried converting the Season 12 scarf to a five color palette (red/white/green/silver/gold), but I'm not as happy with it.

My options as I see it:

  1. Make the S18 pattern and hope it's more obvious than I think.
  2. Add two more colors to the S12 pattern.

Thoughts? Recommendations for what colors to add if I go with Option 2?

I think that, assuming you've got time to do a full-scale scarf, it'll read as Baker's Doctor regardless just because of sheer size.

Yes, that's my thought, too. Any long, stripy scarf is pretty much identifiable as a Tom Baker Doctor Who scarf these days. Just make sure you post photos when you're done so we can all admire it!

I have a friend that did a harry potter themed series 18 scarf that carries on a the Doctor 4 feeling very well. I think as long as the pattern is correct even if the colors are changed it will still read as a Doctor Who scarf given the unique pattern of the scarf itself.

If you wanted to try an add two more colors to a series 12 you could add a fair blue (anywhere from a near white to robin's egg) and maybe a plum or some shade of purple?
