PSA: Star Wars Needs More Homemade Sweaters

If you’ve watched episode 3 of the second season of The Mandalorian, I’m sure you’ve noticed that there’s a bunch of Mon Calamari working on the docks on Trask. However, what you might NOT have noticed is the glorious sweater one of the workers was wearing. Behold:

Have you seen that sweater? Have you noticed how perfect it is? The incredible craftsmanship (these types of sweater are quite challenging to make according to my knitting girlfriend), the color, perfectly suiting the Mon Calamari skin tone, the thought that someone might have lovingly knitted it for him.

One of the things that has always struck me about the Star Wars movie universe is how art, reading, and written languages are mostly absent from society. I’m really happy that The Mandalorian is changing all that… one sweater at a time.
