Bottle Rocket is a simple shaker toy for your little astronaut-to-be. It is knit around a 12-oz plastic soft drink bottle.
Price: This pattern is temporarily available for FREE.
Yarn: You will need approximately 50 yards of a bulky-weight wool in the main color and 20 yards of a bulky-weight wool in a contrasting color for best results. (Pictured: Kraemer Yarns Mauch Chunky in Kiwi – bulky, 1 skein / 100g / 120 yards, 60% New Zealand Wool, 40% Domestic Wool; and an unknown odd ball of orange bulky-weight acrylic.)
- 4 US size 8 double-pointed needles
- tapestry needle
- waste yarn for provisional cast on
- one empty 12-oz. soft drink bottle with cap, rinsed and dried
- duct tape
- rice, pebbles, or jingle bells (to make the rattle)
Sizing: The pattern will make a rocket that fits snugly around the 12-oz bottle. To adjust for a 24-oz bottle, knit even until the tube extends to where the bottle curves inward, then decrease as for the 12-oz bottle.
