    i made this martian with hook 1,25 but it is to big. It doesn't even fit with one leg in the flying saucer. My flying saucer fits exactly according to the measurements of the pattern. What am I doing wrong.
    • crochetfantasy 8 months ago
      Good afternoon! Have you noticed the difference in the thickness of my yarn?
      • itphonehome 8 months ago
        no i didn't, i use yarn 170m/50g. If that is the solution, then I will try it again. Three times is the charm ;-)
  • h-craig 1 years ago
    Hi there can you tell me where the marker should be when joining the legs. Back or front? I can’t get the bum in the right place
    • crochetfantasy 1 years ago
      The marker runs along the right foot behind. The photo shows a white thread
  • Coralchet1 1 years ago

  • suzz456 1 years ago
    This is so cute. Looking forward to trying to make for my grandson. Thank you for sharing.
  • jay-horn 1 years ago
    I love this pattern he’s so cute, but am having problems joining the legs together as I get a hole in the middle after completing row 12. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again
    • crochetfantasy 1 years ago
      Thank you for your comment! 12 Rnd. it's important: along the OTHER side of the chain
      • jay-horn 1 years ago
        Thanks for your reply. I understand it’s on the inside part of the chain but do you start your 3sc inc in the 2sc you chained? It’s not very clear in the photo.
        • crochetfantasy 1 years ago
          No. 13 rnd starts on the right leg: 3 inc. Then along the other side of the chain: 2 sc. Then 3 increases on the left leg. Further in the description.
