Inspired by the knitted yodas on livejournal, I made my own crocheted version! ^^ I'll be giving it to the boyfriend on our three year anniversary (next week). It's a good thing he doesn't read my craft forums, because I just finished it last night and I have been dying to show it off lol!
I made him with some leftover red heart brites (green), lionbrand homespun (i can't remember the color - but it's for his coat), and a bamboo-like toothpick for his cane.
I don't have a pattern for Yoda, but I'll try to jot down some notes. He was relatively simple to make.
Make two ears with green yarn. Chain 6, then work a few rows of 5 sc, then decrease to 3, then decrease to 2, then decrease to 1.
For the head/body, work green yarn in the round, working in a spiral. Once I increased to about 30 stitches, I worked a few even rounds, then decreased to about 10. Make sure to add his face, and if you want to make it easier to attach the ears, you can attach them on now, too. Begin stuffing with poly-fil. I increased again to around 20 stitches for his body and worked evenly until it was long enough, then I decreased, stuffed with more poly-fil, and then closed off the circle. That's his body.
With the homespun yarn, I basically made a rectangle that was large enough to wrap around Yoda's body. Then I wrapped it around, using the tail to stitch it closed (leaving a small opening at the top).
with green yarn, I made a small square (I think 5 stitches wide, and about 5 rows), and folded in half. I attached this around his neck/chest area (where the opening of his coat is) -- these are his hands. Then I just stuck the toothpick in this folded square, for his cane. ^_^
