This little astronaut has taken a giant leap onto a moon base. You can make this as a decorative piece, or even add a weight such as dried rice inside the moon to make a paperweight for your desk. This would make a super thank you gift for a science teacher.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, this toy is knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round). The astronaut’s collar is a single crochet chain worked on the crochet hook.

A pair of 3.25mm single pointed knitting needles (US 3)

Sirdar Hayfield Bonus DK; double knitting/light worsted weight; 100% acrylic; less than a 100g/280m skein in each colour.

Tapestry needle, toy filling, cardboard, felt fabric, buttons to decorate and a skewer for the flagpole.

One size only - The astronaut is 9.5cm tall; the moon base is 8.5cm diameter and 4cm tall.

For confident beginners and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, increases and decreases, and seaming to finish.
