May the 4th be with you

Da ist mir doch Samstag eingefallen, dass ich heute was zu Star Wars gehäkelt haben wollte. Mist, verdammter!
Aber dafür, dass es „mal wieder“ eine total übereilte und schwachsinnige Aktion war, ist es nicht zuletzt dank der Hilfe meines Lieblingsmitbewohners ganz gut geworden. Dieser warf nämlich ein, dass Yoda häkeln langweilig, Prinzessin Leia boring und Jar Jar Bings fantechnisch zu hart wäre. Darth Vader wurde mir auch ausgequatscht, weil das nur mit Anakin gehen würde – auf den hatte ich aber keinen Bock etc. pp

Boba-Jabba-Han_PortfolioImage_Landscape

Wie ihr seht, sind wir nun bei einer Szene gelandet, die ich nicht einmal ansatzweise in Erinnerung hatte. Aber wofür gibt es die Google-Bildersuche. Für die Star-Wars-Gering-Enthusiasten unter uns: Jabba der Hutte (links), Han Solo in Karbonit (mitte) und Boba Fett (rechts). Alles Wissens- oder auch Nicht-Wissenswertes zu den Figuren erfahrt ihr unter der Verlinkung auf Jedipedia. Und ja, ich finde es auch bizarr, dass Star Wars nicht nur ein Wiki hat…

Zu Recht fragt ihr euch, warum ausgerechnet diese Szene den Zuschlag bekommen hat. Ich will es euch verraten: Seid geraumer Zeit liegt ein Han-Solo-in-Karbonit-Eiswürfelbereiter bei uns im Tiefkühlfach und damit hatte ich ohne viel Aufwand schon ein Motiv im Kasten… Konnte ja keiner ahnen, dass die dauernden Farbwechsel bei Boba und die vielen Doppelkinne von Jabba mich in den Wahnsinn treiben würden. Denn erst zum Abschluss meiner Häkelei bin ich auf das Star-Wars-Häkeln-Buch von Lucy Collin aufmerksam geworden, dass ich mir dann wohl zum nächsten Jahr gönnen werde, denn auf Ravelry sind die Pattern zugunsten der Buchveröffentlichung nicht mehr erhältlich.

Wer weiterliest, bekommt noch ein paar Bilder und die Anleitung zu Jabba und Boba (für die ich aber aufgrund der gebotenen Eile keine Garantie auf Vollständigkeit und Perfektion übernehmen werde).

My Boba Fett has several pieces. Two legs are joined together to form the body. The head includes a lot of colour changes. And I managed to write it down. Yeah! Some tiny bits are to be assembled to head too. And there is even a cloak.

Jabba

The head has 6 pieces. Three layers build the head (A, B & C). One piece is the snout (D). And you need to work two eyepieces (E) to give him this fed up look. The eyes are painted safety eyes with red and orange nail colour post finished with black ink. The mouth needs to be embroidered with black yarn. The red tongue is worked in 3 ch and 3 sc in the second st from hook. Assemble all pieces and the arms before filling the head and sewing it to the body. It will take some time, but do not worry: it will be worth the effort.

Head A

Rnd 1: start 5 sc in a mr (5)
Rnd 2: inc 5 times (10)
Rnd 3: sc in all 10 (10)

Rnd 5: sc in all 15 (15)
Rnd 6: *2 sc, inc* (20)
Rnd 7: *3 sc, inc* (25)
Rnd 8-9: sc in all 25 (25)
FO & weave in tail.

Head B
Work in rounds after starting with 25 ch, green yarn

Head C

Rnd 1: close chains with sl st to form a circle, *3dc, inc* (25)
Rnd 2: *4 sc, inc* (30)
Rnd 3: *5 sc, inc* (35)
FO & weave in tail.

Eyes D (make two)
Work in rounds, green yarn. Do not close the MR to tight, you have to get the safety eye through.
Rnd 1: start 4 sc in a mr (4)
Rnd 2: inc 4 times (8)
Rnd 3: sc in all 8 (8)
FO & leave a long tail for sewing the eyes to the head (A).

Snout E
Work in rows with brown yarn, but start 4 sc in a mr (4), without closing the loop.

Rw 2: ch, turn, sc in all 8 (8)
Rw 3: ch, turn, sc in all 8 plus 4 ch (12)
Rw 4: turn, sc in next 3 (starting with 2nd from hook), dc in next 7, sc, 4 ch and work the next 3 st sc back (starting with 2nd from hook))
FO & leave a long tail for sewing the snout over the head (B + C).

Arm (make two)
Work in rounds, green yarn
Rnd 1: start 4 sc in a mr (4)
Rnd 2: inc 4 times (8)
Rnd 3-10: sc in all 8 (8)
FO & leave a long tail for sewing the arms between head layers (B + C).

The Body has 2 pieces – belly and tail. Stuff the pieces firmly as you go and before sewing them together or to the head. I wish I had written down the detailed colour changes, but you are on your own. Do as you like with a 2/3 green ratio. Just spin the belly part some times before assembling so your colour changes match.
Due to a lot of questions I added the chain number, where to with colours in {brackets}; start a new round always with green until other indication – Update August 2017
