Here are a few crochet patterns to make a “baby yoda” crochet amigurumi pattern.
Adorable and mysterious, Baby Yoda is no doubt the best character in the new Star Wars show, The Mandalorian.
Even if you haven’t watched the show, you’ve likely seen a Baby Yoda meme or three on Instagram.
Would you like to crochet your own? In this post, you’ll find a list of our favorite Baby Yoda-inspired crochet patterns.
Supplies You’ll Need
Here are some of the supplies and tools that you’ll need to crochet a little green alien. Of course, you should always read the instructions of the particular pattern you choose for more details.
- Yarn: Some of the patterns use worsted-weight yarn, and some call for other yarn weights. If you’re going with worsted-weight yarn, try Red Heart Super Saver in the colors Frosty Green and Cafe Latte. The color “Buff” would also look good.
- Hook: If your pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn, you might need a crochet hook in Size G (4.0) or size H (5.0)
- Toy Stuffing: You’ll need some Poly-Fil or other toy stuffing to give shape to your amigurumi. The size and shape of the plush will also depend on how tightly you stuff it. I recommend stuffing the plush pretty firmly for the best shape.
- Safety Eyes. Some patterns will call for a pair of safety eyes. But remember, crochet fabric stretches, and even large safety eyes can be pulled out with heavy use. If you are making plush toys for a child, use an almond-shaped piece of black or dark brown felt instead!
- Tapestry Needle.
Here are some other common amigurumi techniques that you’ll need to know to crochet these plushie patterns.
- Single Crochet Decrease (Sc2tog)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Slip Stitch (sl st)
- Invisible Decrease (Sc2tog): Insert the hook in front loop only of first st, insert hook in front loop only of second st (3 loops on hook), yo and draw through 2 loops, yo and complete sc as normal.
