If you love looking at the night skies, this little ringed planet would be the perfect companion to cheer you up during the long winter!

He also makes a super cute (and quick) gift knit for the astronomer, physicist or geek in your life.

The ButterflyLove pdf Little Ringed Planet knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions and handy hints along the way. It is suitable for a beginner/intermediate knitter and you can whip your little planet up in a matter of minutes.

The standard pattern can be easily adapted to make the ring wider or narrower and you can use different amounts of blocking/pressing to make it super flat or gently undulating, depending upon your own personal preference. The rings also have holes between the grouped matter - just like the real thing!

You can also contact me at any point if you need technical advice or have any other queries.
