It’s Star Wars Day everybody! And look what I created this past week:
It was Jay who suggested I make a Death Star cushion and I eagerly accepted the challenge.
The first several attempts at making this crochet space station were frustrating because I couldn’t get the right spherical shape. This is where the internet (as usual) saved me from pulling out my hair. I found this really awesome sphere pattern calculator and all I did was enter the circumference in stitches (96) and it came up with a pattern for an ideal sphere. The only difficult part was counting and making sure I had the right number of stitches per round because the formula isn’t like your usual increase every x number of stitches by y number of times. So for this project I followed the calculated pattern and then added slip stitches to the middle rounds to create the trench.
