The Star Trek fandom is old. It’s actually the start of a lot of modern fandom elements, like fanfiction, fanart, and fanzines. Star Trek knitting patterns definitely fall into that whole fandom. (This list actually contains some vintage Star Trek knitting patterns and they’re just as fabulous as you’re anticipating.)

Because Star Trek has gone through another revival with the movies and upcoming TV show, it’s as popular as it’s ever been. Everyone, whether or not they consider themselves Trekkies, is familiar with the series. (For example: At a company meeting the other day, one of the presenters confused Star Trek with Star Wars and I have never seen the entire room react to something in unison and as swiftly as they did.)

Show your Trekkie pride by knitting one of these awesome Star Trek knitting patterns. (I’m definitely partial to the sweaters.)
