Description

Contemplate the universe in a ball of yarn!

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

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:

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept payment via PayPal, check, or money order. Please note that payments via check, money order, or PayPal eCheck will take a few days to clear.

Returns & exchanges

Customer satisfaction matters! If you have questions or concerns regarding your purchase, please contact me, and I will be happy to work with you.

Physical items can be returned for a replacement or a refund within 30 days.

Due to their nature, digital items cannot be returned. However, I am happy to send replacement copies of patterns if your files are lost, corrupted, or otherwise incorrect.

Additional policies

Custom Orders:

I am happy to take custom orders. Feel free to contact me with your ideas and we can discuss options. Please know in advance that my policy is not to make items from trademarked characters (Hello Kitty, Disney princesses, etc.), or to make direct copies of others' work.


Trades:

Trades are fun! However, my house is also quite full, so, I usually only accept trades for consumable items (yarn, spinning fiber, soap, food, etc.)


Buying for children:

Many of my items contain small or breakable pieces, and as such, are not safe for very young children (particularly those under the age of 3)
Please feel free to contact me with questions and comments about age-appropriate toys.


Help with Patterns:

I do post the odd mini-tutorial and clarification here:
http://needlenoodles.com/home/?q=taxonomy/term/5

or, contact me via Etsy convo.


Splitting Patterns:

I do not break up patterns containing multiple projects into cheaper single-project patterns. The rationale is that, once the labor cost of re-doing page layout is taken into consideration, the price of an individually customized pattern would be greater than that of the original pattern set.


Other Sellers Selling Items Made From My Patterns:

I am generally okay with individual crafters making use of my patterns in items that they sell. However, I do ask that they give credit to me for the design. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
