Crocheted Starship Enterprise

FeaturedContest Winner

To boldly go where no ball of yarn has gone before.....

Here is my crocheted starship Enterprise, it is based on the Constitution class vessel (NCC-1701) seen in the original series.  I have to admit that I'm more of a Next Generation and Voyager fan but the original Enterprise is most recognizable (and easier to make). 

I used three colours of yarn and some red and black embroidery thread for detailing plus some wire to provide support for the saucer section and warp nacelles.

I envy (in a positive way;P) you for having photos with every step you've made... I've worked in such a hurry and only had a few pics(all blurred... poor light) and i couldn't use them at all. =))
It's a great ship!! i bet it can fly:D
ChrysN (author)  copilarim3 years ago
Thanks, I find it easier to explain instructions with pictures rather than words, if I make something that I plan to post I take pictures of everything.

Sure it can fly, but it can't quite break earths orbit! ;)

Is the pattern using US directions or UK? Sometimes it can be hard to tell :)

mercy me!!!
This is so creative- I wish I could crochet!
All you need are yarn and a hook or needles, if knitting is more your desire, and then look up "how to" videos on Google or even on here, there are thousands of them, and then a wee bit of patience. You should also look for groups of folks in your area that may be into yarnstorming or yarnbombing, there are always creative folks in those groups that are willing to teach their skills.
