Star Wars blanket (crochet and knitting)

I’m going to make a Star Wars blanket.

I’ll keep this post short and sweet as I know you’re here for the patterns (lol – see graphs below).

I’ve got the majority of the patterns from here: Ahookamigurumi

…and others from notallwhowanderarelost

And I’ve made some more – see below.

The patterns on Ahookamiguri and Notallwhowanderarelost are for crochet but I prefer the look and feel of the patches knitted.

Here are two side by side for comparison (one knitted, one crochet, same pattern, same 100% cotton yarn.

Side by side comparison

The crochet patch (left) felt solid/ hard and rough like face scrubbies. There was barely any movement in them. I held them up by a corner and they barely moved. The knitted versions by comparison feel soft against my skin, and are flexible (they collapse against my hand when held by a corner).

They aren’t quite as square as the crocheted version, or as large, but those are sacrifices I’m happy to make.

 

While there is a wealth of patterns on the two websites above, I have made some additional patterns. Here they are.

Prawn type alien

I’m not sure if this guy has a name – you see it playing cards with Lando in the Solo film.

Kylo Ren lightsabre

I’ve used dark grey for the background, but black would maybe be more appropriate.
