Make 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.
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
-- slip stitch
-- single crochet
-- single crochet decrease or invisible decrease
-- half double crochet
-- 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

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 photos to illustrate the text. I want your crochet experience with my patterns to be error-free, easy to understand, and creatively satisfying.
