My Space Rocket cushion has a little pocket on the back to carry the astronaut into space adventures. The finished rocket is 36 cm tall and 25 cm wide, and the astronaut is 12.5 cm tall. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. This pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work to make the rocket portholes and astronaut visor. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.
