Enjoy all of the sci-fi fun of wielding your very own raygun, without any of the sci-fi carnage!


This is a knitting pattern suitable for intermediate knitters, and involves the following techniques:

  • Working in the round
  • The following stitches: k, p, k 2 tog, lifted increase (KLL, KRL),
  • pinhole cast on (instructions for this are included with the pattern)

Finished raygun is about 6” tall, 8” long .

Suggested Materials:

  • Yarn:

Blue: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes: Marina; 2 skein

Black: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes: Coal; 1 skein

White: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes: White; 1 skein

(Or worsted weight yarns of your choice. Under 200 yards needed in Blue, under 50 yards needed for all other colors. I strongly suggest using a feltable wool (or other animal fiber) yarn, as non-felting yarns will produce a very differently shaped raygun. If you must use a non-felting yarn, I suggest using a smaller needle size to produce a denser fabric-- something around a US size 5)

  • One set of US Size 8 double pointed needles

  • Tapestry needle (for weaving in yarn ends)

  • Scissors

  • Needle and Thread

  • Stuffing (I use polyfill)

  • Light and Dark Blue felt

  • White embroidery floss
