Feel the Force with 15+ Free Star Wars Knitting Patterns

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there were hundreds of free knitting patterns inspired by Star Wars, and we chose our favorites to share with you!

Star Wars is a legend that we’re all quite familiar with! It transformed the sci-fi genre making Luke, Leia, Han Solo, and Master Yoda household names. Terms like a lightsaber, Death Star, and the Force became common. This masterpiece from George Lucas has enchanted the audience with its classic take on Good vs. Evil for more than 40 years. 

Considering the global fan following, it is expected to learn that there is a huge number of Star Wars-themed knitting patterns floating around the galaxy. Thankfully, many of them are free! 

The craze is such that now there’s even an official knitting book for creating more than 25 Star Wars knits. You can make toys, costume replicas, home decor items, and inspired apparel based on the iconic franchise. 

Star Wars is one of the most popular cultural franchises in the world. As we get ready to celebrate May the Fourth, the unofficial Star Wars holiday, the day all our lives changed, here are a few knitting ideas to bring Star Wars to your home. You can create your own Star Wars merch, from knitted hats to a stuffed BB-8!

There are so many Yoda patterns that we’ll create a separate post for the Master later.
