Introducing Droid, please. Just in time for Star Wars Day! Look closely and you’ll see all the circular details. In the black stripes you’ll find tiny circles in the form of eyelets, in the orange stripes you’ll see circles formed by cables, and the scalloped border gives the illusion of our favorite droid rolling right along.

Droid, please. is a smallish, half-circle shawl that uses a BB-8 colored yarn for the main color (BB-sheep by Lazer Sheep Yarns). This pattern is a relaxing knit with a few cables to keep it interesting. Your finished shawl is immediately recognizable as everyone’s favorite droid. Any Star Wars fan would love to wear it!
