About: My goal is to provide the most accurate, detailed, and clear crochet instructions possible. I spend many hours writing, designing, proof-reading, and testing each pattern. Each pattern includes step-by-step ...

You can crochet a soft-sculpture version of the spaceship/leviathan Moya from the sci-fi series, "Farscape." Moya is an organic starship, like Star Trek's Enterprise crossed with a sea creature. I am offering my pattern as a labor of love for the small, loyal fan base of the cancelled TV series.

FOR MORE FARSCAPE FUN: I have Talyn, Chiana, Sizoku, and Rygel crochet patterns for sale in my shop, janageek.etsy.com. 

Pattern is for those with intermediate crochet skills and basic needle-work skills. Ship parts are made in spiral rounds. To make ship, you will need to know how to:
-- read a crochet pattern
-- chain
-- slip stitch
-- single crochet
-- single crochet decrease or invisible decrease
-- half double crochet

Pattern includes:
-- definitions of stitch abbreviations
-- materials list, including recommended yarn brands and colors and where to find materials
-- links to helpful online crochet tutorials
-- helpful color photos

    I just wanted to let you know im learning how to crochet just to make this for my unborn child. the world needs more far scape!

    If you want to learn to crochet and make amigurumi (dolls), I highly recommend the tutorials on www.planetjune.com by June Gilbank. Her book, "Complete Idiot's Guide to Amigurumi" is a great resource.

    I have made Ka D'Argo and Rygel dolls, and I will soon be designing a Chiana doll. I have also just finished designing a Talyn ship that is about 9 inches long. I have not written up the patterns for these yet, but I hope to within the next 3 months. If you don't see it here, check my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/JanaGeek.
