Rocket Ship Banner

Gather ‘round friends, I’ll let you in on a little secret about me: up until this past fall, I had never seen the original Star Wars movies.  I’ll give you a moment to finish gasping, and to fully come to grips with the harsh realities of my childhood. All kidding aside, my husband finally sat me down a few weeks ahead of the big screen release of The Rise of Skywalker and said, “you’re watching them.”  So in every spare moment we had from that point on, we watched Star Wars, all 8 movies, in swift succession. Lord grant me the strength (or, in this case I guess, the force).

After all that space travel, I guess I just had space on the brain, and thus the design for this banner came to be.  

At a whopping 24” x 32” this C2C banner is my largest banner design to date.  I used Lily Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn for the majority of this project – but a full list of yarns and colors used can be found in the pattern.  You’ll need 3 balls (360 yds to be safe) for the background color, but otherwise, this pattern is perfect for a bit of stash busting!

Please Note:  The pattern includes the graph and finishing details only – it assumes you already know the fundamentals of crocheting in the C2C stitch (increasing, decreasing) as well as how to carry colors, and follow the graph.  Check out the linked tutorials by some of my favorite makers on my Tutorials page and get familiar before getting started!

The Rocket Ship Banner, once finished, is such a fun and colorful piece of art for your walls.  Make one for your child’s nursery or bedroom – and don’t forget to smash those gender stereotypes!  This isn’t just a design for boys – in 2020 (and always) it’s OK for girls to love space and science too!
