Knitting Pattern: Rocket Five Years

Knitting Pattern: Rocket Five Years

10.00

This is a pattern for a handknit sweater for a five year old boy or girl.
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. 

Pattern has written directions, materials lists, and full color charts to enlarge. The pattern assumes a good knowledge of knitting, or at least an adventurous spirit and a knitting guidelines book. Obviously other color combinations are possible. Have fun!
