Since my best friend works for Rocketship Education, I couldn't send a box of hats without at least one having a rocketship on it. So, with a picture in my head of what I wanted, I sat down and made it happen. Now you can too!
This beanie is sized for elementary school children and works up in a jiffy (Get it? Cause I'm using Jiffy yarn...haha!). The rocketship applique can be used for any hat, or maybe a blanket or bag. The sky is the limit...or not...since it's a rocketship (Get it?).
I apologize...it's been a long hat series and my brain is tired :)

Add a couple of fringe tassels to the beginning chain for the flames. I used 4 tassels with 3 4" pieces of yarn each and then trimmed them all to my desired length of about an inch.
