Doctor Who scarf finished

The double crochet version of the Doctor Who 4th Doctor's scarf is finished. I even added fringe! 

I began the scarf on June 1. I finished the body of the scarf on June 9th and the tails were all woven in by June 11th. Fringe was added this morning, June 12.

Here are pics taken outside in daylight. I think it gives the best representation of the colors.

Finished size is about 10" x 12' 2"

For this scarf, I used
Purple = Knit Picks Brava Sport Currant
Camel = Stylecraft Special DK Camel 
Mustard = Sirdar Hayfield Bonus DK Pumpkin
Rust = Stylecraft Special DK Copper
Grey = Stylecraft Special DK Graphite
Greenish Brown = Sirdar Hayfield Bonus DK Moss Green
Bronze = Knit Picks Brava Sport Brindle

The details:
I chained 42 for my foundation chain, worked first dc into the 4th chain from hook and used ch-2 for my turning chain. All rows are worked in double crochet.

For gauge, I followed a general rule of 2.5 rows per inch and used inches pattern for reference (with permission). I multiplied it out using the general rule for fractions - if it's over a half inch, go up. In other words, if I needed 6.5", I multiplied 6 x 2.5. The result is 16.25 which is less than sixteen and a half, so I dropped the quarter and made it 16. If I needed 5.5" I multiplied 5.5 x 2.5 and got 13.75 which is more than thirteen and a half so I went up to 14 rows.

Pattern can be found at my Doctor Who weebly site (under My Scarves) at 

Happy crocheting!
