I feel very fortunate to live in a world where geekery and nerdom are totally trendy. May the Fourth (and your ChapStick) be with you always.
Seriously, has anyone ever, in the history of Chapstick, actually finished one? Here's to hoping the force can keep them safely guarded!
Worsted weight yarn in gray and black, a small amount of red, and whatever lightsaber color you prefer! The thickness of your yarn will effect the size and fit of your holder. Some good yarn for this project is Vanna's Choice.
Crochet hook size E-3.5
Plastic lobster clasp
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
Terms and abbreviations to know:
st, sts - stitch, stitches
sc - single crochet
inc - increase, working 2 sts into same st
ch - chain
Notes: This pattern is worked from the end of the sword to the handle, all in one piece, without joining rnds. I would suggest weaving in your ends as you work, because it is difficult to turn inside out once you're finished. Gauge is not important. However, I do crochet tightly. if you find that yours is turning out too large for your ChapStick, try using a lighter weight yarn, or smaller hook. As a free pattern, this pattern has not been tested, but is accurate to the best of my abilities. Please let me know if you find any errors!
