Knit 1 round
Next round: [k2tog, k2] around (9sts)
**Secure cast-on yarn end, closing the small hole at the bottom and stuff the rocket with fibrefill**
Knit one round
Next round: [k2tog, k1] around
Cut yarn, draw through the remaining stitches and secure tightly.
Fins (make three)
Using a pair of 3.25mm needles, cast on 4sts
Purl 1 row
Next row: k1, m1, k2, m1, k1
Purl 1 row
Next row: k2, m1, k2, m1, k2
Purl 1 row
Next row: k3, m1, k2, m1, k3
Stocking stitch for 3 rows
Next row: ssk, knit to last 2 stitches, k2tog
Next row: p2tog, purl to last 2 stitches, p2tog tbl
Next row: ssk, knit to last 2 stitches, k2tog
Cut yarn, draw through the remaining stitches and secure tightly.
Fold the fin in half lengthwise and sew the row ends together leaving enough of an opening to push stuffing through. Stuff with fibrefill and sew the opening closed.
Position the three fins evenly around the rocket, remembering to take into account where the window is.
Simple as that!
