Finished Project Friday – Star Wars Blanket

IMG_0928

Today in honor of Star Wars Day, I’m sharing photos of my finished Star Wars graphgan blanket. After about 18 months I finally finished the blanket back in December, just in time to give to my Dad for Christmas. The pattern I used is Ahookamigurumi’s Star War blanket.

Plotting out the squares before sewing. Not pictured: X-Wing.

The squares I made are (from top left to right): Greedo, C3-PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Stormtrooper, Millenium Falcon, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Star Wars panel, Destroyed Death Star, Yoda, AT-AT, Tie Fighter, Ewok, The Emperor, Jabba The Hutt & X-Wing. I also made a Lightsaber square, but didn’t end up using it.

I single crocheted around all of the squares with black yarn. I didn’t however crochet around the finished blanket since I was frantically putting this together on Christmas Eve and didn’t have time.

I stitched the squares together using the mattress stitch.

The yarn colors I used are:

  • Red Heart Super Saver in Black
  • Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry
  • Red Heart With Love in Grey
  • Vanna’s Choice in Terracotta
  • Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! in Ivory
  • Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! in Dark Olive
  • Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! in Gold
  • Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! in Yellow
  • Caron United in Blue

I also used other skeins of yarn, but they had been in my stash for a while and I’d lost the labels.

Making this blanket was fun, but I don’t think I’ll do another graphgan like this for a while.

Have a good Star Wars Day!

  1. This is incredible! Wow! I love it. I bet your dad loves it as well. Way to stick to a project until it is finished, even if it takes 18 months. Well done!
