A crocheted green baby Yoda wearing a brown jacket

The moment I saw little Grogu, I knew I wanted to crochet him. His huge eyes and ears and sweet little face just make him irresistible! This pattern can be used to make a tiny version or a huge version depending on which yarn and hook you use. I have included instructions for both sizes in this pattern! The small one can easily be made into a keychain by adding a lobster claw clasp to the top, or you could use fishing line to hang him from a rearview mirror. The large one is super soft and cuddly. He would make a great gift for any Star Wars lover.

This is a simple pattern for a head, body, 2 arms, 2 ears, and a scarf. Once all the pieces are made, just sew them together and you’ll have your very own Baby Yoda! I love making small amigurumi with Patons Grace yarn because it is easy to work with and makes tiny stitches and Bernat Blanket Yarn is my favorite for larger projects. Using Patons Grace yarn and a 2.25mm crochet hook, he ends up being 2.5 inches tall and 5 inches wide from ear tip to ear tip. With Bernat Blanket yarn and a size N hook he ends up about a foot tall and 18 inches wide!

The pattern is the same for both sizes. The only difference is that for the large size you will crochet the eyes and for the small one you can use safety eyes. For the small, you will use the size 2.25 crochet hook for everything. For the large, you will use the size N hook for everything but the eyes. The eyes are made with a G crochet hook.

Stuff the body with fiber fill and sew all the pieces together. I find it helpful to use sewing pins to hold each piece in place as I sew. Attach the head and body first with the head tipped a little forward to give him a shorter neck. Next attach the arms to the body. Then attach the scarf around the top of the arms to make it look like the collar of his jacket. Attach the ears sticking straight out from each side of his head and he is finished! Please share pictures if you make one. I’d love to see your little creations 🙂

Happy crocheting!
