---------------------------------

This is a crochet pattern suitable for intermediate crocheters, and involves the following techniques:


* Working flat and in rounds
* The following crochet stitches: ch, sl st, sc, dc, tr
* Working in back loops only
* Foundationless sc/dc/tr (optional)
* Magic ring (instructions for this are included with the pattern, also known as adjustable ring)

Finished mobile is about 6 1/2 inches across the main ring and about 10 inches from the top of the main ring to the lowest planet.


I’ve also made a few quick videos to demonstrate various techniques used in the pattern:
