Solar System CAL

Are you ready for a project that is truly out-of-this-world amazing? Join me for a Solar System crochet along project!

What is the Solar System CAL?

This will be a 12 week blanket crochet along project. Each week, I’ll release a new part of the pattern. The blanket will be worked in the round and will be double-sided (although you can make it single-sided if you like).

We’ll make the sun and the orbits for all nine planets (Pluto is a planet, I say!), as well as the asteroid belt that lies between Mars and Jupiter. Each of the nine planets will be made as separate sew-on appliques, so you’ll be able to place each planet wherever you like on its orbit!

There will also be some bonus space-themed appliques to sew on, which will include: the moon, the International Space Station, Voyager-1, a space shuttle.

And, for fellow sci-fi nerds, there will even be some extra-bonus appliques for the T.A.R.D.I.S., the Death Star, and the U.S.S. Enterprise.
