This pattern was designed to represent Rocket Science in the Science Knit designs for the March for Science.

This pattern was inspired in part by the movie Hidden Figures. I cannot wait to make some for all the little girls in my life to encourage them to pursue their dreams.

Warning: I have a very loose gauge. Make sure to check your gauge as you may very well have to go up several needle sizes to obtain my gauge.

This pattern includes some three-stranded colorwork which is not my favorite thing, but I think it made the design much better. Alternatively, you could knit the shuttles in just white add the gray afterward with double knitting.
