11 Intergalactic Patterns That Are Out Of This World!

11 Intergalactic Patterns That Are Out Of This World!

In space no-one can hear you knitting or crocheting. 2019 saw the 50-year anniversary of humans setting foot on the moon while 2020 has seen the world continuing to go mad for NASA merch! Why not celebrate this historic landmark by crafting some extra-terrestrial patterns? Check out these beautiful toys to give to space-obsessed little ones or to take pride of place on display in your home – to infinity and beyond!

One giant leap

Arlo is an astronaut lost in space. This groovy guy is equipped to complete his space mission, he just needs his spaceship (good thing we have provided it!) This combo is a perfect gift to inspire little ones to take their imagination to the edge of the galaxy; playtime has never been so much fun! He’s made with stitches that’ll certainly be familiar to you, but be sure to keep an eye out for when you have to work in back loops or front loops only. If you can’t find any snap fasteners for the backpack at your local haberdashery, why not substitute it for Velcro or even a button? Get the FREE pattern here

Space Race

Houston, no problems here! These vibrant colours will WOW anyone, and this impressive vehicle may just be too nice to give away, but if you’re feeling kind this is the perfect gift for aspiring astronauts. To make flames, simply brush through the yarn you attach to the bottom of each funnel and trim into shape. Got any glittery orange yarn in your stash? It’d look fantastic!” Get the FREE pattern here
