Star Wars Crochet Cozy Series – Part 16 – Luke Skywalker

The Series Continues

Hello everyone! This post is going up a little later than I expected it to; I got caught up with some homework I needed to finish for my new class. But with that done for today, I was able to get back to finishing up the last few edits for the new pattern.

Which character cozy to do next was a tough choice. There are so many good Star Wars characters throughout the films and shows, I just couldn’t narrow it down at first. So I reviewed the ones I’ve done already and decided to tackle a few of the older characters in the series. Today’s pattern is going to be of Luke Skywalker from the first movies. (Be sure to click on the image below to go to the Star Wars site and check out the character bio.)

Yarns I Used:

  • Big Twist Yarns Baby in fawn (boots)
  • Red Heart With Love in eggshell (pants)
  • Red Heart Super Saver in soft white (tunic)
  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease in fisherman (skin)
  • Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in honey (hair)
  • Patons Metallic in Pewter (lightsaber handle)
  • Red Heart Super Saver in blue (lightsaber ‘blade’)
  • Red Heart Super Sver in coffee (belt)

Notes and Abbreviations

Notes:

  1. The cozy is made of 4 pieces: the main cozy, 1 lightsaber piece, and 2 arm pieces.
  2. The arms and saber pieces are optional; the main cozy looks enough like Luke Skywalker to work on its own.
  3. The cozy is worked in back-and-forth rounds.
  4. In the main cozy, the first chain of each round does not count as the first stitch.
  5. The numbers in the brackets at the end of the instructions note the number of stitches that need to be in that round upon completion.
  6. An increase is 2 single crochets made into 1 stitch.

Abbreviations:

  • Ch(s) = chain(s)
  • Sl st(s) = slip stitch(es)
  • Sc(s) = single crochet(s)
  • Hdc(s) = half double crochet(s)
  • Dc(s) = double crochet(s)
  • St(s) = stitch(es)
  • Rnd(s) = round(s)
  • Rep = repeat
  • Inc = increase

Assembly Required

If you have decided to make the arms and lightsaber too, you’re now ready for assembling the cozy.

Now, Luke seems to be right handed, so his right hand will be just a little higher up on the lightsaber than his left hand. Attach the arms, with the shoulders just behind the mid-point of the cozy and the arms coming around the cozy to the front. Use about 1 to 1 1/2 yards of Red Heart Super Saver in soft white on the tapestry needle to attach the arms.

The lightsaber comes next. The ‘blade’ should be up along his ‘head’ on the right side with the handle just under his hands. Use about 1/2 to 1 yard of blue yarn to attach the lightsaber.
