When I made the Saturn V, I wasn’t really thinking that it would be the first in a line of crocheted rockets that would let me relive the rocket/space age obsession of my youth. I just made it because I love the Saturn V! I mean it’s so cool!
It was just so much rocket. That’s what it took to shoot three guys into a crazy orbit to get to the moon.
Of course I had to make it to scale. What rocket-obsessed, crochet-loving person wouldn’t? The whole thing is about 2 feet long.
Oh yes, and here is my attempt at an epic, launch-pad style view:
And, let me tell you, it’s impossible to have this lying around without someone playing with it. If this is out and you have people over, there is a very high probability that they will pick it up and make rocket noises with it. I’m just warning you.
