I have always been a big fan of sci-fi!
Typically, I’m more of a book person, but when I had Alice (my first child) I gave the new Doctor Who TV series a try. I was instantly hooked!
Through the years I have rewatched a few of my favorite espisodes (and I also keep rewatching Star Trek Voyager). When I learned how to create interlocking crochet patterns I decided I wanted to make myself a Doctor Who blanket!
It didn’t take long to have more squares than needed and there are lots more that could be drawn!
I may add to this list later, but currently I am considering it done.
Interlocking & Mosaic
Every design can be made using interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet.
The overlay mosaic crochet version of each square uses the original interlocking crochet chart and you will see the mesh dots.
The all-in-one blanket has been adjusted so that the overlay mosaic crochet version is solid.
All of the Doctor Who designs are available for free. When I contacted the BBC, they gave me permission to use their material with the caveat that it be free.

Copyright status still applies; do not distribute these patterns. Direct your friends to come to this page and get their own copy of the pattern.
Why are there paid patterns in this list?
The flowers were created before I began this Doctor Who series but, in my opinion, they represent the storyline well and I wanted to include the designs in my blanket so I’ve listed them here in case others also want to include them.

Rose in Bloom
Chart size: 81 x 81
I didn’t want to reuse the rose from my Mother’s Day CAL (Crochet-A-Long) so I drew up a new one. And, since a rose isn’t a copyrighted character like the other Doctor Who images, I have listed this one as a paid pattern.
Mother's Day Rose
Chart size: 81 x 81
Another rose option. This is originally from my 2020 Mother’s Day CAL.
Chart size: 81 x 81
I intend to also use the sunflower from my Mother’s Day CAL (to represent the Van Gogh / Amy Pond story line).
Odd Chart Size
Chart size 97 x 53
This is not the same size as anything else in this series.
Random Bowtie was created by request. I expanded the motif from my Father’s Day scarf: Bowties.
I included it in my list of Dr Who Patterns because I can. Others have mentioned using it to create pillows that match their blanket. It is free on the blog.
Chart size 41 x 41
The “20” refers to how many windows you start with when crocheting this pattern using the interlocking technique. It is written up for mosaic crochet as well.
Or, you can crochet this square with me on YouTube (interlocking crochet option only)!
Chart size 41 x 121
This is as tall as the other banners but only half as wide. It is the same width as the medium squares.
Sonic Screwdriver is free to view on the blog. You can also download the PDF pattern there! Just choose which technique you’d like to use (interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet).
NEW: I now have a 4-part video walk-thru of the interlocking version of this pattern on YouTube! View it here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbdEDo49IQrrVvtQqU0gZqXx6g4bL9v_k
Chart size 81 x 81
Judoon can be viewed for free on the blog.
I’m still waiting to see a blanket with just this square repeated over and over (a platoon of Judoon)!
Sample crocheted by Caitlin Franzmeier.
Chart size 273 x 349 (interlocking)
Chart size 269 x 345 (adjusted, solid overlay mosaic)
Unlike the rest of the designs, I have adjusted the mosaic version of this all-in-one blanket so there are no interlocking mesh dots. The double border line that locks the interlocking layers together has also been removed from the mosaic version.
I’ve arranged these squares in a way that makes sense to me regarding MY favorite characters and story lines. For example, the rose and sunflower are actually paid patterns. I include them in my list of Doctor Who squares because I NEED to include them in my blanket. They represent my two favorite story lines (Rose, the character, and Van Gogh with his sunflower art).

Chart size 213 x 205 for both techniques.
I have this large blanket pattern that looks like suspenders over a striped shirt. There’s a bow tie and it makes me think of the Doctor, but it isn’t really Doctor Who themed enough… and yet I am adding it here anyway!
The file includes interlocking written instructions, a chart, and then written mosaic instructions. There is no X-marked chart for this pattern and the mosaic version DOES have the mesh dots.
