Star Wars Crochet Cozy Series – Part 13 – Rey

Three Greys

The Star Wars coffee cozy for this week is Rey. The leading lady with a mysterious origin has been a fascinating new protagonist added to the Star Wars ranks.

And let me tell you, it was hard finding the right colors for her clothes. Her outfit has three different grey/sandy colors that took me forever to match correctly.

Anyway! Let’s just jump right into it!

Notes:

  1. This cozy is made in 5 piece: the cozy (body), 2 front panels for the crossed-sash, and 2 back panels for the sash that drapes down in the back.
  2. Numbers at the end of the instructions: In square brackets “[ ]” will be the total stitch count for that row/round.
  3. The first chain in each row/round does not count as your first stitch, so don’t skip your first stitch.
  4. The stitch markers will be used to help you gauge where to put the front and back panels of the sash.
  5. An increase is 2 stitches made in the same stitch.

Attaching the Pieces

Instructions for Attaching the Sashes: (use the medium grey yarn; use tapestry needle)

  1. Use about 1 ½ to 2 yards of medium brown yarn on your tapestry needle.
  2. Facing the front of the cozy, make sure that the three small buns and the seam of your cozy are lined up with the center of the front. Use 1 stitch marker to mark the center stitch that lines up with the seam of the back.
  3. Use the other 2 stitch markers to block out 9 stitches of the front-center of the cozy. This’ll help you center the front-sashes.
  4. Using the shorter front-sash, and facing the front of the cozy, place the sash from top-right down to bottom-left. And stitch on the piece with the tapestry needle.
  5. Using the longer-sash, place the sash from top-left down over the other sash and bottom-right. Stitch on the piece  with the tapestry needle.
  6. Facing the back of the cozy, be sure your seam is centered. Using your 2 back sashes, line them up on either side of the seam, leaving a little space between them.Stitch on the panels using the tapestry needle.

Instructions for Belt: (use the gingerbread-colored yarn; use tapestry needle)

  1. Use about 1 to 1 ½ yards of the light brown yarn and put it on your tapestry needle.
  2. Attaching the yarn: Facing the front of your cozy, begin by attaching the yarn to the right side around the dark-grey and light-grey color change. I used a chain-stitch all the way around to create the belt. Keep it very, very, very loose!
  3. The Belt: First, stitch your way around the center of the cozy, over the sashes, and back to the point you started with. Then, go around again, with the second strand of the belt, slightly lower than the first, over the sashes, and back up to the same starting-point.
  4. Attach the little belt pouch with the remaining yarn to the opposite side from where you started the belt.
