The Star Wars Geek Crochet Top – Ahsoka

Ashoka Free Crochet top pattern

Are you ready for the next Free crochet summer sweater pattern?

I hope so because I’ve been workin my little tushy off on getting this thing together.

You ever get a yarn and think, “this reminds me of something…”

Typically, I’m all about texture and drape when choosing yarns for a project, but this blue. Ya’ll. Man oh man, this blue.

Of course you can (and should!) make this layering sweater in any color you want.
But if you are a Star Wars fan, you see what I mean about this blue, right?
And the shaping of the design within the lace… its just too much.

It all comes together to be a (maybe not so) subtle nod to Ahsoka of the Clone Wars.

If you’re not a fan of the Clone Wars, you probably see this lace as what it was meant to be, a budding flower. Either way, simply gorgeous and much easier to create than it seems.

NOTES:

  • Top is worked in 3 pieces, Upper Front / Back are stitched individually from bottom up then seamed at shoulders and underarms, the Lower Body is then worked perpendicular to the Upper portion, attaching as the rows are created.
  • Take time to save time. Stitch, wash, and block a gauge swatch in the same manner you will be using for your garment to ensure proper measurements. This lace fabric will need "help" opening up. It is recommended to thoroughly soak/wash, then lay flat to dry, using rust-proof pins to shape the pieces to measurements.
  • Choose sizing from largest of bust or full hip measurement.
  • Read through each line before beginning to avoid any confusion during stitching.
  • Remember, if needed, stitch diagram(s), schematic, and customization instruction are available through my Etsy store and at LoveCrochet.
