Sneak peak at Insight Edition's "Star Wars: Knitting The Galaxy"

One of the latest Star Wars releases looks to help people combine both a galaxy far far away and knitting. That's no joke! Insight Editions has just released the pre-order for "Star Wars: Knitting The Galaxy," and just in the promotional materials someone can see the gift-giving potential.

According to the book's official synopsis, "Bring the power of the Force to your needles with the first official Star Wars knitting pattern book. Featuring 25 knits pictured in gorgeous full-color photography, Star Wars: Knitting With the Force includes patterns for toys, apparel, and home decor inspired by your favorite movie moments, characters (both human and alien), droids, ships, and more."

Projects range from simple patterns like the Ewok Hood (sized for both children and adults!) to more complex projects like the Darth Vader Pullover. It even includes patterns for knitted replicas of a few iconic costume pieces, such as Luke Skywalker’s cropped flight vest from Episode IV A New Hope and Rey’s vest and arm warmers from Episode VIII The Last Jedi.

With projects for knitters at all levels and a variety of techniques to practice—including stranded colorwork, double-knitting, and lace knitting—Star Wars Knitting is the perfect book for knitting fans across the galaxy.

Star Wars: Knitting The Galaxy is available for pre-order now and is set to release on January 5th 2021.
