How To Make Crochet Baby Yoda.
A note about the pattern: I like to crochet, but I usually only write pattern notes for my own reference. This pattern is just my notes as I tried to make a doll for my kiddos. Since this is the first pattern I’ve typed up for my blog, there might be errors. Please comment below with your feedback. I do want to make sure the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
Supplies and Terms
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver (or other worsted weight yarn) in Frosty Green, Cafe Latte, The color “Buff” would also look good.
Hook: Size G (4.0) and size H (5.0)
A note about yarn: I’ve using worsted yarn for this version, and worked up to about 12″ tall. You can, of course, use whatever size yarn/hook combination you like. Gauge isn’t too important – just choose a hook that is a couple of sizes smaller than your yarn recommends so that you can crochet a tight fabric.
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.

Baby Yoda Pattern
The pattern is worked in continuous spirals (without joining the rounds) from the feet up. You will need a stitch marker to keep track of where the beginning of each round starts; move the marker up to the first stitch of the next round after finishing the previous one.
Make two legs, and then join them together to make the body. Continue to the head. Make two arms, and join them to the body. Make two ears, and join them to the head.
