I’ve charted all the crochet patterns to fit onto a 30 by 30 square grid. This means that these charts may be used for any craft that requires a square grid, so beaders and cross stitchers may also be able to use these patterns for their items. If you do, I’d love to see pics of your work!
To work these in crochet, you’ll need separate bobbins or lengths of yarn for each color change on each row. Do NOT carry the yarns or try and crochet over them tapestry style as they will not only distort your gauge, they will be seen through the work. Instead, work in single crochet (American) with the colors per the chart until you reach the last sc in a color section, and insert your hook and draw up a loop so you have 2 loops on the hook. Drop the old color to the back of the work and pick up the new one from underneath. Draw the new color through the 2 loops on the hook to complete the stitch and your color change is done. It takes longer and leaves more ends to weave in, but I think it produces superior results.
All charts are © Leah Fenton, except where noted, and may not be sold or used for items offered for sale. Lee Ann Hamm is the only other crafter whose Star Wars charts I have seen on the net, and while my Rebel logo (rebelc1) differs from hers, my chart is modeled on her original work, and is a derivative work and therefore not eligible for a copyright by anyone. All other charts are my original work. Enjoy!

Please note that for some reason the web page doesn't display the chart lines properly; it looks like some are missing. However, on testing my page, I found that when saving images locally, they displayed properly when looking at them using Irfan view.
Bobac. The gray area in the helmet should be black, but is shown in a lighter color here to make following the chart easier. I know some of the finished pieces look small, but that's before the borders are added.
Dstarc1. The Death Star seen in A New Hope.
Dstarc2. The incomplete Death Star seen in Return Of The Jedi.
Tiec. My pattern for a TIE fighter with angled vanes.
emplogc. Chart for the Empire's insignia.
Trooperc. Imperial Stormtooper helmet.
Vaderc. The Dark Lord of the Sith's helmet. The white portions of the helmet should be done in light gray, the light gray areas should be dark gray, and the dark gray should be black, but all are shown here in lighter colors to make following the chart easier.
R2D2c. Front view of a terrific little droid.
C3POc. Knit the head of a protocol droid. The mouth is shown in blue, but should be done in dark brown or black to emphasize it. If you don't have that many yarn colors hanging around, you can do it in dark gold, but on the image I worked from, it looked a little darker. Like some of my other images, it's shown in a lighter color so you can actually see the stitches on the chart!
saberc. Crochet some lightsabers. These are 16 stitches by 30 rows, and you should vary the pommel colors, using dark gray and light gray and even black if you like. I alternated light and dark gray pommels and used more blade colors to give my sabers more variety. Since the expanded universe states saber blades came in a greater variety colors, I don't feel my colors violate canon.
Falccr. Everyone's favorite bucket of bolts is shown in a top view.
Xwingk. My KNIT chart for an X-wing was based on Lee Ann Hamm's crochet chart, and as a derivative work does not qualify for a copyright. However, if I'm wrong, then this chart is copyright 2005 Leah Fenton. See Lee Ann's original CROCHET X-wing chart at: http://www.fortunecity.com/millenium/abbeydale/183/xwingstarfighter.htm
Ywingc. Another spacecraft used extensively by the Rebels.
Lspeedc. Crochet a landspeeder. Shown under the twin suns of Tatooine. The silver lines represent motion of the speeder.
Rebelc. My Rebel insignia was based on Lee Ann Hamm's crochet chart and I understand as a derivative work does not qualify for a copyright. If I'm wrong, the image is copyright 2005 Leah Fenton.
On the left is Jangoc. The green area in the helmet should be black, but is shown in a lighter color here to make following the chart easier. On the right is Clonec, a Clone Trooper's helmet from Episodes 1-3.
Oldrepc, the Old Republic insignia I designed.
