The shop re-opened on Mon 12th April 2021. Welcome back.
I began creating this little guy from pictures I was seeing everywhere. I didn’t use a pattern, instead building him using the basic shapes I’d been working with to create other crochet animals. The head, I knew, needed to be more oval shaped and not circular and so played around with where to increase and decrease to achieve this.
The ears were the most fun to create as they are an iconic part of this inspired baby Yoda image.
The coat was created more by testing and shaping as I went along. Worked in rows, I kept measuring against his body. Because he is broader at the bottom, I knew I needed to make this section much wider and this is where the double treble stitches came in handy!
Following a few tries, I finally managed to create my first written pattern for this little amigurumi, which felt like a huge achievement!
