I JUST finished this and figured it'd make for a good first post on Men Who Knit.
I found the pattern to be pretty challenging, particularly at first, when there were something like 120 stitches to use. I chose to use double-pointed needles, figuring that they'd be similar to circular knitting needles. I'd have to say that were I to do this again, I'd try to use the circular knitting needles for the majority, probably until I got to the very top part (the head). I wound up with a little stretching where the needles broke off but nothing that time won't heal (hopefully).
Anyway, the pattern was spelled out pretty easily and, what with youtube, I was able to learn quite a bit from this pattern! I'd suggest it for anyone who loves Doctor Who and wants to stretch themselves a little bit.
The final Dalek ended up about a foot or so tall and uber-cute!
