Tuesday Tens: Ten Geektastic Patterns

Princess Leia Costume

Leia Wig knit by Dyana in Lion Brand Vanna's Choice.

It started with an e-mail from one of my geeky friends with the pattern for the Leia Wig shown above. Then he sent another link to a pattern for Knitted Light Sabers. Geeks love knitting, and there's no shortage of patterns for just about any geekdom. I've featured ten here, and included the geekdom for those who don't speak geek.

1. Leia Wig by Ansley Bleu

Example knit by Ansley in Misti Alpaca Chunky.

Geekdom: Star Wars

2. Binary Scarf by Christine Dumoulin

Example knit by Shona in Caron Simply Soft.

Geekdom: Computers. (Read more about binary here.)

3. DNA Scarf by June Oshiro

Example knit by Sarah.

Geekdom: Biology, specifically genetics. (Not quite a geekdom, but close enough.)

4. Nintendo Kleenex Box Holder (Ravelry link) by Carrie Ouradnik

Geekdom: Nintendo. Specifically, old-school Nintendo.

R2D2 hat

5. R2D2 Beanie by Carissa Browning

Example knit by Janelle in Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Super Saver.

Geekdom: Star Wars (Specifically, R2-D2.)

Example knit by Jo.

Geekdom: Doctor Who. This is a stuffed Dalek. (Linking to the iconic scarf seemed too easy.)

7. Cthulhu Dice Bag! by A. A. Leavitt-Reynolds

Example knit by Michelle in Cascade 220.

Geekdom: There's two here. Cthulhu is from the work of HP Lovecraft, and may be considered a geekdom all it's own. Also, a lot of dice are required for Role Playing Games, hence the dice bag.


Lord of the Rings Scarf (Ravelry link) by Tina Yeung.

Example knit by Tempe in Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport.

Geekdom: Lord of the Rings. This scarf features the text inscribed on the ring.

Jayne Hat

Jayne Cobb Hat by Dryope (She also has a crocheted version.)

Top example knit by Lisa in Caron Wintuk and TLC Essentials. Bottom example knit by Clare in Robin Double Knit and Sirdar Bonus DK.

Geekdom: Firefly

Geek Mitten 1

10. Geek Mittens by Gayla Oglesby.

Example knit by Gayla in Lion Brand Lion Wool.

Geekdom: Computers, specifically Linux. These mittens feature Tux, the Linux mascot.
