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 (red, black, grey, white)
Crochet hook size G / 6 / 4.25MM
Stitch Notes (American):
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet (sc)
Half Double Crochet (hdc)
Double Crochet (dc)
Yarn Over (YO)
Gauge: 2 sc = ½ 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 wound separate little balls of black and red ahead of time to use in the square instead of "carrying" all these yarns over by crocheting over them. 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 36 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 37.
Row 1: (With white) 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch across; ch 1, turn (now and thoughout pattern). (36 sc).
Rows 2-7: 1 Sc in each sc across; ch 1, turn. (36 sc).
Row 8: 1 Sc in each of 1st 29 sc, (change to red) 1 sc in next sc, (change to white) 1 sc in each of next 6 sc; ch 1, turn (29 white, 1 red, 6 white).
Row 9: 1 Sc in each of 1st 6 sc, (change to red) 1 sc in each of next 2 sc, (change to white) 1 sc in each of next 9 sc, (change to black) 1 sc in each of next 2 sc, (change to white) 1 sc in each of next 17 sc; ch 1, turn. (6 white, 2 red, 9 white, 2 black, 17 white).
Rows 10-36: Continue pattern according to chart making the color changes in chart. At the end of last row, do not fasten off. Note: If you need to add more sc rows after Row 36 in white yarn, simply repear Row 2 until the height and width measure "square". I had to add 4 extra rows to the top of my square.
EDGING: At the end of last row, work sc stitches all around perimeter of square also working 3 sc in each corner.>
Fasten off and sew in ends well with large-eyed sewing needle.
