CAFFEINATE! and Other Wonderful Knitted Dr Who Creations

In honour of Day of the Doctor, the 50th Anniversary special of Dr Who airing on November 23, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite knitted Dr Who things… some with free patterns!


Free Doctor Who Pattern

Caffeinate! As one clever knitter has noticed, a French-press style coffee maker bears a striking resemblance to a Dalek. Knit one to warm up your coffee and brighten your morning. The whole project can be completed with 2 balls King Cole Merino Blend Aran in Petrol (926). Many thanks to Coryna at Heathcote Road for sharing this brilliant pattern with us!

To download the pattern: click on the download button above and the pattern will open in a separate window. Be patient; it can take some time! If that doesn’t work, right-click instead and select ‘Save link as…’ This will save the pattern as a pdf on your computer, which you can then find and print. If you’ve clicked on the pattern and nothing seems to be happening, your computer may have saved it as a pdf; try looking in your ‘Downloads’ folder.

12doctorsKnit Every Doctor

From William Hartnell to Matt Smith and all Doctors in between, you can knit all 12 Doctors with this pattern. Each doll only takes an hour or two to knit, meaning you could have 50 years of television complete in no time!



Knit one cuddly Dalek for yourself, or as the author says, “knit a whole army and prepare for world domination!”

Disguise yourself as the Doctor with Tom Baker’s iconic scarf. Knit it with Hayfield Bonus DK, available in 55 brilliant shades on
