Best Crochet Baby Yoda Patterns

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, Cafe Latte, and Aran. 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.

Crochet Techniques

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.

Hi Alice, Sorry I don't have any more pictures. So the arm is worked from the shoulder down. Round 1 is actually the side that you'll attach to the shoulder.

Hi Sarah thanks for this pattern it's amazing but I am having trouble with the arms I got the first part all done to where you fasten it off I guess that's the shoulder but I'm having a hard time adding the fingers do you have any pictures to show where it is because where I start to put them it's like up at the shoulders and that just doesn't make sense to me I really love this pattern I'm making it for a 70-year-old lady that I work with she absolutely loves baby Yoda and yours is the perfect one thanks again for the pattern hope to hear back from you Alice long
