Crochet Saturn V

I am SO HAPPY I MADE THIS! I am a huge nerd and have been in love with this rocket since I was 10. It's *roughly* to scale and I made it as close to the actual rocket as I possibly could. The pattern is now available on my Etsy shop.

    So cool. This brings me back to childhood. Love the little flags on the 3rd(?) stage. For someone not inclined at all, would you make others for sale?

    Wow! This is so clever.
    My Mr Kitsch is obsessed with the Apollo program. I can't decide if he would love this or whether I would labour in vain to make one for him...
    Hmmm....

    Cool! Great work. I made a plastic model Saturn 5 kit when I was a lad but it was nothing in comparison to this!
