A Merry Star Wars Christmas

Thanksgiving is over, and the Christmas season has started. Disney has blessed us this season by introducing us to an adorable Baby Yoda. Of course, I had to have one, so I made my own Baby Yoda!

And you can have one, too! Here’s the crochet pattern to bring home your own Baby Yoda. Merry Christmas!

Notes on Amigurumi

• When working in rounds, do not join. Just continue crocheting in the next stitch creating a spiral. Use an open stitch marker to keep up with beginning of round.

• Decrease: (Insert hook in flo of next stitch, yo, pull up a lp) twice, yo, pull through all 3 lps on hook.

• Invisible Finish Off: Pull the last lp up until tail comes through st. Using tapestry needle, sew tail under next st and then through the center of the previous st. Draw yarn to back and secure. Weave in end.
