When I saw a kit of Star Wars crochet at Knit City a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t hesitate. The kit includes all the materials needed to crochet a stormtrooper and Yoda, and the instruction book has patterns for ten other characters, too. Twelve characters! I’m especially excited to pick up some brown yarn to make Chewbacca – I’ll have to brush the doll after it’s crocheted, to make it all furry.
The kid discovered the kit in a corner of my studio (my plan was to start making them in secret before the holidays), and nearly lost his mind. So here’s the stormtrooper, in progress.
I never really forget how much I love crocheting dolls, but it’s still nice to be reminded that I should actually do it.
Oh, and here’s the latest Episode VII trailer, in case you haven’t seen it yet. (Dare I say the plot looks promising? A turncoat stormtrooper! The return of the Force! A glimpse of Leia!)
Let’s make this a geek-crafting open thread, eh? Post in the comments about some geeky crafts you’ve been making (photos or it didn’t happen)!
