Notes:

  1. This cozy is made in 1 piece: the cozy (body).
  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 orange chain stitches that represent the stripes on Solo’s pants.
  5. An increase is 2 stitches made in the same stitch.
  6. This is the color scheme for the original A New Nope film. But you can customize his colors to fit other films, since he has similar outfits throughout. For example, in Return of the Jedi, he uses brown pants with yellow stripes instead.

Instructions for Stripes: (use the orange yarn and a tapestry needle)

1. Lay your cozy flat, with the front side facing up (the side showing the shirt).

2. Using the center to gauge, count five stitches to each side. Line up the stitch marker with this count but along the bottom blue row. These will be where you begin your chain stitches. HINT: you should be able to see the markers when flat, which means when you create the stripes, you should be able to see them both when the cozy lies flat.

3. With about 1 to 1 ½ yards of orange yarn, load your tapestry needle.

4. Begin with either stitch marker area. Knot your yarn on the inside of the cozy and stick the needle through to the outside. From here you will do 3 to 4 chain stitches up the blue portion of the cozy.

5. Stick the yarn through to the inside of the cozy, it helps to turn the cozy inside-out at this point, and stitch your way across the top of the blue section, making sure to keep the orange yarn hidden inside. Slip the yarn down to the next stitch marker area. Turn it back right side out.

6. Poking your needle through to the outside once again, make 3 to 4 chain stitches up the blue section again.
