Attention all Star Wars fans and crochet enthusiasts! If you're looking for a new and exciting project to take on, why not combine your love for the iconic science fiction franchise with crocheting? When I saw this Star Wars C2C crochet pattern, I knew I had to tackle it. And I am so glad I did. I love it!!!
With this Star Wars crochet pattern, you can create a cozy and eye-catching blanket that showcases the Rebel Alliance symbol. It is the perfect size for a lap blanket. Or simply use it to add some Star Wars flare to your home décor.
As I was working on this Star Wars crochet pattern, my husband decided he wanted a blanket that features the Galactic Empire symbol. Of course, I was unable to find a Star Wars C2C pattern with the symbol. So, I am now working on a pattern that will be the same size as the Rebel Alliance blanket. If it all works out and looks good, I will be offering it as a free Star Wars crochet pattern.
If you are new to the C2C crochet technique, I think this would be a great pattern to start with. It only uses two colors. And it slowly introduces you to color changes, so they do not get overwhelming.
What is C2C Crochet?
Corner-to-corner (C2C) crochet is a popular technique used to create diagonal patterns that resemble a series of small "tiles". This technique involves working in diagonal rows, starting at one corner of your project and building toward the opposite corner.
Each row is made up of small "tiles" or blocks, which are worked in a particular stitch pattern and then joined to the previous row. The result is a textured and visually interesting fabric that can be used to make a variety of projects, such as blankets, scarves, and even garments. C2C crochet is a versatile and fun technique that is popular with crocheters of all skill levels.
How to C2C Crochet for Beginners
To complete the Star Wars crochet pattern, previous C2C crochet knowledge does come in handy. But it is not necessary. I was able to get started quickly and learned a lot by watching the video from Lovable Loops. She even gives you a free C2C crochet pattern of a dog you can try first.

Rebel Alliance Star Wars Crochet Pattern Details
If you have followed along with my blog, you know I am not a great crocheter, but I do try. I always go full force at anything I do. I had never tried working on a C2C crochet pattern before, but what was to stop me now?
To tell you the truth, I did not think the Star Wars Rebel Alliance symbol would actually look like the symbol once I was done. If you have ever seen those Pinterest fails, that is how I roll. But like I said, I still try. And this blanket turned out perfectly.
To complete, the pattern calls for:
Worsted Yarn (white)
o I used I Love this Yarn White
Worsted Yarn (gray)
o I used I Love This Yarn Grey Beard
Size H-I crochet hook
o I used Luxury Crochet Hook I - 5.5mm
o I used Yarnology Locking Stitch Markers
Yarn bobbins (optional)
o I mostly used handmade yarn bobbins, but finally broke down and purchased Yarnology Yarn Bobbins.
o I used Boye #16 yarn needles.
For some reason, I ended up with 2 extra skeins of gray and ran short on white. I’m not sure if this was my fault or a miscalculation on the designer’s part. But it doesn’t matter. I’m going to put that extra yarn to use on the Galactic Empire free Star Wars crochet pattern.
Completed, my blanket measured about 36” x 41” with the border. The designer states that the blanket will measure close to 40” x 50” without the border. What can I say, I am a tight crocheter.
Starting the Rebel Alliance C2C crochet pattern was pretty simple.
Then I got to the color change. It was fairly straight forward and easy to understand.
Then the Star Wars crochet pattern got a little more complicated. But it was still fairly simple.
I finished the base of Rebel Alliance crochet pattern. Now it was time to add the border. You do not have to add one if you do not want. But I thought it would look better with one.
I used the Moss / Linen Stitch Border. I followed along with this tutorial from Blossom Crochet.
The Star Wars crochet pattern I completed was for a throw blanket. The designer also offers a baby blanket size. You can order the C2C crochet patterns on their own or get both sizes in a bundle.
