Knitting Pattern: Rocket Five Years

Knitting Pattern: Rocket Five Years


This is a PDF instant file.
On the front the rocket is soaring into space past the Sun, Earth, Mercury, Venus, and the Moon. On the back are the outer planets, in incorrect order!, in a starry sky. The sleeves are mirrored comets shooting through the starry sky. The wrists and hem trim is rocket flames. The neck, wrists, and hem trim is alternating stripes of red and variegated blue. There is chain stitch detailing around the planets and the rocket. 
Obviously other colors are possible.
Have fun!
