Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Crochet Pattern

Kylo Ren Lightsaber Pattern
Kylo Ren’s lightsber, complete with the crossguard hilts and an exposed wire!

I think that Kylo Ren’s lightsaber might be one of the coolest Star Wars lightsabers of all time. It’s right up there with Mace Windu’s epic purple lightsaber and the Darksaber. Today, I am treating you to an awesome free crochet pattern for Kylo Ren’s lightsaber.

According to Wookiepedia, the lightsaber’s blade was originally blue. After Kylo Ren crossed over to the dark side, the lightsaber turned red and he modified it to incorporate the crossguard hilts. Interesting!

Anyway, I was super excited to design this pattern! It took me a few tries to figure out what size to make the lightsaber blade, but I eventually figured it out.

The pattern is a bit longer than some other amigurumi patterns, but don’t let that scare you; it only contains very simple stitches and techniques. Without further ado, here is the pattern!
