Baby Yoda Crochet Pattern: Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

by Shehla Ahmed

Baby Yoda has been stealing hearts all over the internet and even though I don’t watch the show, I’m in love with him. I originally just made one of these little guys for my sister to go along with the Darth Vader I made her a few years ago. I shared him on Instagram and a lot of people asked for the pattern so here it is! This is the Baby Yoda crochet pattern I’ve whipped up and it’s super quick and easy to make. Hope you enjoy!

 

 

The best thing about this baby Yoda crochet pattern is that there aren’t too many pieces. I’ve seen some patterns that included little pieces for facial features and a separate coat. While I love how those look, I didn’t want to spend the time sewing all of those pieces together. So my baby Yoda crochet pattern only has the essential features and I think the simplified design adds to the cuteness!

This is one of the items I’m making for my craft fair next month and so far, it’s been a quick process building up a stock of them. Amigurumi, in general, does take longer to make than most things people make for craft fairs, but I think it’s worth the time. Each Yoda here for example only uses about $0.75 in materials (since I can make several from the yarn) and people are willing to pay more for unique items. I’d love to know what you think about craft fairs, and what you like to sell, in the comments below.

Free Baby Yoda Crochet Pattern

 

 

Head

 

Round 1: With green yarn, create a magic loop and work 6 SC into in. Pull the loop closed and use a stitch marker to mark the first space. You’ll be working in continuous rounds for the entire pattern.

Round 2: Inc in each space by working 2 SC into each (12).

Round 3: *SC, inc* around (18).

Round 4: *SC 2, inc* around (24).

Round 5: *SC 3, inc* around (30).

Round 6: *SC 4, inc* around (36).

Round 7: *SC 5, inc* around (42).

Rounds 8-16: SC around for 9 rounds. 

 

Insert the eyes on the 5th round from the last increase round and about 5 stitches apart. You can play around with the placement, but once you’re happy with it, secure the backings. Then start to add in the stuffing.

 

Round 17: *SC 5, dec* around (36).

Round 18: *SC 4, dec* around (30).

Round 19: *SC 3, dec* around (24).

Round 20: *SC 2, dec* around (18). Finish adding stuffing.

Round 21: *SC, dec* around (12).

Round 22: Decrease around (6). Then cut a long tail and thread it through a tapestry needle. Run the needle under the front loops of each stitch. You’ll use the tail to sew the head to the body later.

 

 

 

Ears (make 2):

 

Row 1: Beginning with a long tail, chain 11, turn and SC along (10).

Row 2: Dec, SC to the end, ch 1, turn (9).

Rows 3-9: Repeat row 2 until only 1 stitch remains.

Row 10: SC 1, turn to SC along the side, slip stitch to the opposite corner folding the two ends together, and SC along the side bac to the start of the row. Then BO and weave in the end. 

 

 

 

Arms (make 2):

 

Round 1: With green yarn, create a magic loop and work 6 SC into in. Pull the loop closed and use a stitch marker to mark the first space. 

Round 2: Inc in each space by working 2 SC into each (12).

Round 3: *SC, inc* around (18).

Rounds 4-6: SC around for 3 rounds. 

Round 7: Switch to brown yarn and SC through the back loops only for one round.

Rounds 8-10: SC around for 3 rounds. Then BO and leave a long tail for sewing.

 

 

 

Body:

 

Round 1: With brown yarn, create a magic loop and work 6 SC into in. Pull the loop closed and use a stitch marker to mark the first space. You’ll be working in continuous rounds for the entire pattern.

Round 3: *SC, inc* around (18).

Round 4: *SC 2, inc* around (24).

Round 23: DC in each stitch around (32).

Round 24: HDC in each stitch around and then BO. Fold down this flap to create the collar of his jacket. Fill with stuffing.

 

 

 

Assembly

 

Now that we’re done making the pieces of this baby Yoda crochet pattern, it’s time to assemble it all together! Start by using the long tail of the ears to sew them onto either side of the head and about eye level. They’ll stick straight out of the sides. Next, add a small amount of stuffing to the arms and use the tail yarn to sew them onto the body at around the 12th round from the base. Then sew on the other arm the same way. 

 

 

Finally, use the long tail yarn from the head to sew the head to the body. First, bring your needle to where the head touches the body since it’s currently at the bottom. Then go through a space on the head and one of the back loops left unworked on the body. Continue around until the head is secure and then fasten off. Then weave in any loose ends and trim the excess yarn to finish. 

 

 

 

And you’re all done!

Thank you for the baby Yoda pattern. My son-in-law loves all things Star Wars. I will make one for him for his birthday and also several for a couple of craft shows that I plan on doing this year. I will definitely credit you for the design and pattern. I make 18″ doll clothes and then I sew or crochet little things for the dolls. ThIs baby Yoda will be a perfect companion for the dolls.

Thank so you much! I’m glad you like it! My sister is the same way so I’ve made her a few Star Wars things.
That sounds so cute, and I would love to see a picture if you can share one to my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheBlueElephantsCrochet/)
