“We are explorers. We explore our lives day by day, and we explore the galaxy, trying to expand the boundaries of our knowledge. And that is why I am here. Not to conquer you with weapons, or with ideas. But to coexist… and learn.”
-Captain Benjamin Sisko-
I have to say, the I didn’t think that following the crew of a stationary space station wouldn’t be nearly as exciting as watching the crew of the USS Enterprise, but oh boy was I wrong!
It only took one episode for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine to become my favorite series. I love every single thing about this show, and I could watch it a million times. The characters are so multi-dimensional, the stories are captivating–it is, in my opinion, the best of all the Star Trek series. Of course I had to make the main crew as part of my Star Trek ami patterns!
This PDF pattern sets features patterns for the main crew: Sisko, Kira, Dax, Bashir, O’Brien, Odo and Quark. Which one is your favorite?
For these patterns, we recommend a size D3/3.25mm crochet hook, as well as aran- or worsted-weight yarn in a variety of colors. The patterns call for 6mm plastic safety eyes, but you can opt to embroider the eyes on instead, if you prefer. We also use crochet thread (you can substitute embroidery floss) to put on some of the details, such as the Starfleet insignias on the uniforms.
Please make sure you read the pattern notes on page 2 of the PDF for some important information about the patterns!
I hope you enjoy these patterns as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. Many thanks (and many raktajinos!) for all of the amazing crafters that donated their time to test out these patterns and make them ready for publishing!
