Before I get into the Star Wars crochet pillow, let me explain myself. I love Star Wars! In fact I also love Star Trek, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. I would say I’m a pretty normal geek. Not too hardcore although there was this time I got hooked on Magic the Gathering. Where it pretty much consumed my life and all I wanted was Magic cards, but we can get into that later.
This post is about DIY Crafts: Star Wars throw pillow edition!
Star Wars Crochet Pattern
So, when I saw this Death Star throw pillow pattern come up on my feed, I thought, holy shit wicked! I clicked through to learn that it was a crochet pattern by Popsdemilk.com. Only one freaking problem. I can’t crochet 🙁
That’s when I decided right there, I was going to learn to crochet. That night I bought all I could need to get crocheting. Here is what is needed:
Magic Ring Tutorial
When I got home I sat down watch YouTube crochet videos. After 2 frustrating hours, I made my first “magic ring” and I was off. Video below, love that intro music!
This pattern is super easy and you can customize it, I made a smaller version as a gift Christmas ornament.
I loved the final product! Would ya just look at it!
The end result is that I learned how to crochet in the round, I made the Death Star throw pillow and now I can make simple hats too. Not a bad skill. Now if I can only get my Grandma who knits to stop making crochet requests.
