Yoda the Jedi Master.

Here it is – my first amigurumi pattern! I would have liked to use black safety eyes but as I have found none small enough in Estonia I used what I had. I really like the way he came out as this really is my first personal pattern. I decided it was the time as for I had been making amigurumi from patterns about a year+ now.

I should note that this is an untested pattern. So if there is any kind of misunderstandings then just let me know and I’ll try to work that out. I am just really exited about posting my own real pattern for the first time. I hope someone else likes it as much as I do. You can use the pattern as many times as you like for personal use but I’d really appreciate a relating link etc to my blog here. Also I should probably tell that the pattern is in US terminology. I have not used many UK patterns so far and am not so familiar with their terminology so if you could tell me the stitches names in UK I could add them at least to the abbreviations.

I have no pictures of the WIP or the details but I will be happy to help you if there is anything mysterious written down. You can see the bigger picture by clicking on it, though.

Have fun making your own Yoda!

For YODA you’ll need:

  • Green yarn
  • Beige yarn
  • Brown yarn (tiny bit for his belt)
  • Toy eyes
  • Stuffing
  • A small craft/paper ball for his head (approx 2cm in diameter)

  • Large-eyed blunt needle

Abbreviations:

  • Sc – single crochet
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • Ch – chain stitch
  • 1+1 – two stitches into one stitch, increase
  • 2-1 – crochet two stitches together, decrease
  • Dc – double crochet
  • Trc – triple crochet
  • 3dc puff – crochet 3 dc’s into one stitch but pull the last yarn through all of them so there would be no increase
