The Star Wars movies are the wonderful creation of George Lucas. In addition to the movies, there are terrific books written in the Star Wars universe, in the years after the fall of Emporer Palpatine. I was inspired to create this design after reading the series of X-Wing books concerning the adventures of Wedge Antilles and the Rogue and Wraith Squadrons.

Worsted weight yarn (black, grey, white)
Crochet hook size H / 8 / 5.00MM
Stitch Notes (American):
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet (sc)
Half Double Crochet (hdc)
Double Crochet (dc)
Yarn Over (YO)
Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch
Finished size: 12" to 12" (inches)
Notes: It's up to you if you want to work over all or some of the unused yarn to "carry" it along in your work. In my sample, I had separate little balls of black to do the solar panels and a separate ball of grey for the cockpit in the center. Odd-numbered rows are read from right to left on chart and even-numbered rows are read from left to right on chart. Row 1 is the bottom of chart and Row 32 is the top of the chart. Each square on chart equals 1 sc stitch. White squares = white yarn; squares marked with an "X" = red yarn
Additional Notes: To change colors, work a sc with the old color, then, pull the new color through the last two loops to complete that single crochet. Always ch 1 and turn to begin each row.
To begin, ch 33.
Row 1: (With grey) 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch across; ch 1, turn (now and thoughout pattern). (32 sc).
Rows 2: 1 Sc in each sc across; ch 1, turn. (32 sc).
Row 3: 1 Sc in each of 1st 6 sc, (change to white) 1 sc in each of next 20 sc, (change to grey) 1 sc in each of last 6 sc; ch 1, turn. (6 grey, 20 white, 6 grey).
Rows 4-32: Continue pattern according to chart. At the end of last row, do not fasten off.
Rnd 1: (Grey) Ch 3 (counts as beg dc), work dc stitches evenly around perimeter working 3 dc in each corner; join with sl st to top of beg dc.
(Optional) Rnd 3: If necessary to add another round to increase your square to 12" x 12", simply sc, hdc or dc around perimeter in this round.
