You can be pretty sure that both Yoda and Obi Wan knew how to knit. How else could they both survive all those dreary years in Jedi Master isolation? Now you can join them by using the woolly force yourself as a stitching Skywalker.

This Knitted Lightsabre pattern from the fabulously named Zombie Sheep (brandished here by a purly Princess Leia who obviously means business) is a free knitting pattern that can be downloaded from Ravelry (the home of some of the universe’s coolest patterns).

It’s well worth checking out the other patterns in her Inside Joke collection too. There’s everything from hip knitted skirts to graffiti crochet cosies.

Yoda would be proud; the fibre force is strong with this one.
