The first trailer for Picard (the newest installment in the Star Trek franchise) released during San Diego Comic-Con this week, and Trekkies everywhere are wondering how they will survive the wait until 2020. I know, waiting can be hard, but it’s made easier with a friend who understands. So make a friend who understands with this amigarumi Captain Picard, designed by Daisy and Storm. Daisy and Storm designs lots of amigurumi patterns for your favorite fandoms, like Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones, all available for free on their website.

Crocheter Nicole Gentry (Gennic on Ravelry) went Original Series and made a mini Spock to help her make logical decisions at work. She used this pattern by Yankee Rose Creations on Etsy.

Deviant Art user smapte made the whole Next Gen crew freehand (without a pattern)! Her Deviant Art page is full of impressive amigurumi to make your little fandom-loving heart flutter!

I love Worf’s little scowl!

With Star Trek streaming on Netflix, pull out your hooks and make a whole Starfleet crew to pass the time until Captain Picard fills the screen — and our hearts — once more.
