Blast Off Crochet Snuggle Sack

Blast off at the speed of light with the Blast Off Crochet Snuggle Sack. This intermediate crochet pattern is perfect for little astronauts, ages 4-8. This crochet rocketship features three little windows (because how else are you supposed to see outer space?) and a little flame trail. Though this is an intermediate pattern, it's only because of the shaping needed to create the ship. You still will be using simple single, double and triple crochet stitches throughout, so there aren't any new and crazy techniques to learn. 

NotesNote: To join new color, work to last loops on hook of previous color. Yoh with new color, draw through rem loops and proceed with new color.

I only have a granddaughter but if ever there will be a grandson in the future, I would like to please him and make him a birthday present, this Blast Off Crochet Snuggle Sack. Little boys will love this.

Oh my why did I have to find this? I have three grand sons. One is 7 and his brothers are two year old twins. That means I can't make just one of these. I have to make three. I guess I can get started and get them done over the Sumer. The pattern really is easy!
