You may be able to guess that the inspiration for this scarf was the eccentric sartorial styling of Doctor Who.  When I snaffled this fabulous yarn from a Ravelry.com destash I was immediately reminded of the swirling temporal vortex that can be viewed through the Untempered Schism (yes folks, I am a geek) and so Beyond Gallifrey was born – a super long scarf that can easily be wrapped thrice around the neck with length to spare.

I love the way that I can see landscapes and space dust in the colours of this yarn when it’s worked this way.  I never get tired of looking at it.

It’s also lovely and effective way to use up two slightly mis-matched skeins of yarn.  The horizontal, alternating ball construction gives you a more subtle stripe than a vertically knitted scarf and is easily handled on a long circular needle.

If you are a Ravelry user you can download this pattern direct.  If you’d like to knit it and aren’t on Ravelry it’s available in my Etsy store.  So in the words of the tenth Doctor: Allons-y!
