Review: Star Wars Crochet + Giveaway

Review it Rah-shay, yaRRns By Jun 07, 2015

This spring, Thunder Bay Press expands its line of crochet titles, and I was sent copies of their newest titles, Star Wars Crochet  and Disney Classic Crochet to review and to host a giveaway!

Each crafting kit comes complete with five yarn colors, a crochet hook, stuffing, and a yarn or tapestry needle – everything crafters need to start bringing beloved characters from each franchise to life.

Star Wars Crochet Kits provides instructions to create 12 amigurami which are little stuffed toys.

I have used the Star Wars Crochet (Crochet Kits) and created a Yoda. (This is an affiliate link)

Lucy Collin does a fabulous job with step by step instructions to create the characters. The size of the book and the included  materials are easily transported and can be created on the go. I worked on my project at home and Yoda took me about four hours to complete. This included some frogging and prepping of materials.

The instructions are very easy and clear to understand and photographs accompany

The yarn comes in hanks, which we had some trouble with untangling. I like to work with my yarn rolled into balls and it took my daughter (who was acting as my assistant) and me to a small chunk of time to get it together.

But once we figured this out,we were all set to go.

I was a bit hesitant to start; the small sized hook made me pause but once I got going, I was hooked (pun intended!).

The safety eyes were tough to put together but it leaves me confident that in the future there will be no accidental eye removals.

I was a little nervous about the tan yearn used for Yoda’s cloak. I had plenty of there other colors left over but had just enough of the tan and this made me feel like I was stuck when it came to reworking my stitches.

It worked out well; I was able to complete the project and Yoda is happily hanging from a key ring.
