Galaxies Far Away – Week 1

In a galaxy far away…… a crochet hook has been stolen from a young Jedi…. was it one of the well known thieves Muftak or Kabe? Designer Janet Miller Lindner brings us into the amazing world of the “obscure” characters of the Star Wars saga. I’m sure you have seen that there are several CAL’s out there for this movie series. But…. have you seen characters such as these? Perhaps a few, but I would wager my favorite hook that you haven’t seen more than a couple of these prior to today. Each week will bring not only the two squares, but the biography of each character, along with the links to do some research of your own about them and the worlds they come from. (Most likely if the words are underlined, they are a link, do have a click here and there and learn some new facts about Star Wars characters, planets, traditions and the entire world of followers)

This CAL is set to be an EPIC journey through the worlds of these amazing creatures. There are 35 squares, written in single crochet and c2c charts accompanied by written instruction, 19 weeks of squares, joins, and borders.

And a word from the designer herself, Janet Miller Lindner

Hello Star Wars fans!

My name is Janet and I’m a sixty something year old who learned to crochet over 40 years ago from a craft store that has long ago ceased to be.  I have a husband, two grown children, and one of their dogs who will never leave here to live with them. ðŸ˜Š   I work in a bakery for over 10 years, just recently becoming full-time there.  I decorate cupcakes and get to be creative with a cake now and again as needed.  

Creativity is my passion and am always looking for ways to expand my creative side. I can get into a mode where an idea just must see the light of day and I work at it and tweak it until I’m happy with it.  Such was the motivation for the Star Wars blocks.  It seemed there was one afghan and then another, some coming up with new characters and I thought how fun to make characters who were memorable even though they just had cameo appearances in the Star Wars films.  Some were easy, some became much more of a challenge because I felt somehow it was the right thing to do.  Please enjoy the journey to the Galaxies Far Away CAL with me and I look forward to seeing your successes.

 

Very fondly,

Janet ❤

WEEK 1:  MUFTAK AND KABE CHADRA-FAN

 

MUFTAK                                     

  • Episode IV – A New Hope                    
  • Muftak’s home planet: Orto Plutonio                       Species: Talz  
  • Orphan, pickpocket, and thief
  • Muftak was orphaned on the steps of Docking Bay 12 of the Mos Eisley spaceport on Tatooine. He grew up among the cantina’s regular, local customers, performing odd jobs to make a living. Muftak found and adopted the abandoned Chadra-Fan female named Kabe, and the two were nearly inseparable. Together they were known as pickpockets and thieves, with Muftak providing the brawn, while Kabe provided the brains. Eventually they fled Tatooine, traveling to both Alzoc III and Chad before visiting other planets.

KABE CHADRA-FAN

  • Episode IV – A New Hope                            
  • Kabe Chadra-Fan’s home planet:  Chad                 Species: Chadra-Fan
  • Orphan, pickpocket, and thief        
  •  Kabe was the adopted daughter of Muftak. Muftak found her on the streets of Mos Eisley, apparently abandoned by slavers who thought she was too small to sell. Muftak took her in and taught her the ways of the street. Kabe lived with him in in a section of abandoned tunnels beneath Docking Bay 83.
