Happy Friday, crafters!
I am super excited about this week’s square: it’s the Death Star!
That’s no moon! Such an iconic part of the Star Wars franchise just needed to be included in this CAL, and I think the design came out really well.
This PDF contains the graph and written instructions for working the panel in straight HDC, doubling up the rows/stitches as I am. Remember, the arrows on the graph are designed for those using C2C to work this project.
A special note about this Death Star square: don’t use flat black yarn if you’re using the sparkly black yarn for the background. The flat black yarn gets lost and the borders of Darth Vader’s helmet are difficult to see. Instead, I’ve been using Vanna’s Choice in Charcoal Grey. You can still use black if you prefer–maybe even stitch a grey outline around the outside edge of the Death Star–just do whatever looks best to you!
Next week’s panel will be another of my all-time favorites: R2-D2! As always, have a craft-tacular weekend! <3 <3
