Star Wars Crochet Cozy Series – Part 3 – Darth Vader

Star Wars Coffee Cozy Pattern – Darth Vader

Hello crafters! It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted last. There has been a few hectic weeks around here, but things seem to finally be leveling off again. I went to my cousin’s baby shower, which was fun and awesome. I’ll be composing a blog post about it to show some of the fun crafts we made  as party decorations and the baby blanket I finished for her. Thanksgiving came and went and I ate too much food, as is customary. There were several days where my fibro symptoms were particularly acute and disruptive, but lots of rest helped with that.

The next Star Wars Coffee Cozy I’m going to be sharing with you guys is the Darth Vader pattern. It decided to go with the chest piece/are as the basis for the cozy. So let’s get started!

Notes:

  1. This cozy is made in 2 separate pieces: the cozy (body) and the chest piece
  2. Numbers at the end of the instructions: In square brackets “[ ]” will be the total stitch count for that row/round.
  3. Numbers at the end of the instructions: In curved brackets “{ }” will be the stitch count for the center section where the colors change. B = black and G = grey
  4. The first chain in each row/round does not count as your first stitch, so don’t skip your first stitch.

Attaching the Pieces

Using your tapestry needle, grab about 2 yards of black yarn and your two separate pieces. Line up the chest piece just under the grey and black section of the cozy. Sew on the chest piece to the cozy, all the way around.
