Take your knitting out of this world with this super fun space themed pattern set! The set includes two patterns- the Solar System Mobile and the Rocket Ship Garland. They are the perfect decoration for nurseries or children’s bedrooms.

Most pieces are worked in the round with color work details added to some of the planets using duplicate stitch and charts. Diagrams are included showing measurements used to assemble the mobile pictured, but these can be adjusted as desired.

Designed using Animation yarn in the color pack Primary Colors, the pattern uses less than 25 g per color and uses up most of the pack.
