I am a terrible procrastinator
 Tongue
The never ending gift (which happens to be a 5 1/2 foot by 5 1/2 blanket) is still not done yet but I've started on making another Yoda anyway.
This time I am writing everything down as I go along.

Thanks for all the replies :]

To everyone that asked for a pattern I promise I will do my best to get that to you as soon as possible.
I pretty much made up my Yoda as I went along.
A trial and error kind of thing.
I no longer have this Yoda because I gave him to a good friend so what I'll have to do is try to remember what I did.

Right now I have one other crochet project that I really have to finish up (a gift 3 months in the making, it's driving me nuts not being done yet)
Thankfully it is almost done so as soon as I get a handle on that I will finish making my second Yoda.

Sorry it's taking longer than I thought

I have a lot of stuff on my to do list this winter but I'll get started on making the Yoda pattern tomorrow.
I'll post it as soon as possible.

EDIT 12/22/07 - Sorry about the delay in making up this pattern. I've had some stuff come up.
I will get around to it, just not as soon as I had hoped.

Wow
I didn't think everyone would like him so much.

I kind of made up the pattern as I went along.
I started with an oval shaped head, then switched to brown for a tube like body.
The ears a mostly triangles, the feet are just crocheted chains sewn into 3 little points, and his arms are tubes.
His outfit was really pretty easy too. The back piece (which unfortunately can't be seen in my pics) is a rectangle, the front is the same as the back except spit in two and the arms are tubes with a small piece extending upwards so I could sew them to the front.
Oh, and his hood is a long rectangle sewn up one side then attached to the back.

I'll try my best to remember exactly what I did and write it down.
Or at the very least I can make another one and actually take notes while I make it.

Thanks so much for the replies!

(Pattern on pages 4 and 5)

I made this little guy for a friend of mine.
A few years a go she didn't even know what Star Wars was. Thankfully I changed all that.

Sorry about the lame photos.
I took them right before I went to give him to my friend so I was in a rush.

Hood Down:



Hood Up:



The little stick he's holding opens up and his lightsaber comes out.
The lightsaber (why oh WHY didn't I take a picture of that???) is made from a mini glowstick, some silver duct tape and some markers.

If I ever get the chance I'll take some better pictures of him.

So what do you think??

Pattern appears later in the thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210775.msg2401024#msg2401024

The Guitar Hero type plushie is awesome.
In fact, that's why I want to make a toy guitar.
The person I'm giving it to is awesome at playing Guitar Hero.

I've found plenty of pictures of guitars.
I just don't know how to use those pictures to knit or crochet something.
I could use a picture of a guitar as sewing pattern pieces I suppose.
I just wanted to post here to see if anyone had found a yarn related guitar pattern.
At least that way, if I didn't have to wing it, I could ensure my project coming out well on my first try.

I'm sort of pressed for time. Which is exactly why I've decided to do something like this Guitar Hero shirt
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188872.0
(scroll down)
This I have the stencils for and it will take much less time.

I'm still on the lookout for good knit/crochet guitar patterns though.

All your help is appreciated.

I read that there was a guitar pattern in New Knits on the Block: A Guide to Knitting What Kids Really Want
But my library doesn't carry it.
I don't want to get it for just one pattern that I'm not even sure is what I'm looking for.
I don't suppose anyone has any insight on this?

Yeah I know.
I saw that post a couple of weeks ago.
I was just hoping someone could actually tell me how to make one like that.
