OMG, he is adorable.  My boss would loose his mind over him!  Any chance on that pattern comming up?  Brownie points never hurt!  Wink  Besides, Yoda was ALWAYS my favorite because he was shorter than me!

Okay, I have written up the pattern for the Yoda doll and instructions for his lightsaber. All I have left is to write up the pattern for his walking stick and little cloak.
Here's the first part of the pattern; the body and lightsaber instructions. I'll try to get the rest of it, the cloak and stick, posted no later than Friday.

Karissas Kreations Amigurumi Yoda Pattern:
Please be kind and do NOT sell this original pattern
This was made only for personal use and not material gain

Needed:
- Decent amounts of green, brown and off-white WW yarn - I used Red Heart Super Saver in Light Sage, Coffee (I think) and Aran Fleck
- Crochet hook( I used an 8 ) and darning needle appropriate for yarn used
- Mini glow stick with connector (optional)
- Small amounts of duct tape (optional)
- Black and red permanent markers (also optional)
- Stuffing
- Google Eyes

Terms used:
Sc Single crochet
Inc(rease) Work 2 sc in 1 stitch
St Stitch
Dec(rease) Insert hook into next chain, draw up loop. With two loops on your hook, insert hook into next chain, draw up a loop. Yarn over a pull through all 3 loops on hook. Decrease made.
Tbl - through back loops
FO Fasten Off
Ch - Chain

Do not join rounds. Leave a long tail at the beginning of the work to use as a marker. Stuff toy as you go along

Head and body: With green ch 2
-     6 sc in 2nd ch Place marker (yarn tail) here; every time you finish one round move the marker into the newest stitch of the newest round.
- Inc in each st
- *Inc, 1 sc* to marker
- *Inc, 2 sc* to marker
- *Inc, 3 sc* to marker
- *Inc, 4 sc* to marker
- *Inc, 5 sc* to marker
- Inc, 1sc, inc, 3sc, inc, 1sc, inc, 17sc, inc, 1sc, inc, 7sc, inc. You should now have 51 sts.
- Work 10 rows with the 51 sts; no increases. What I did here was keep my marker in one stitch. I kept it there so I could count up from it 10 rows. Once I completed the 10 rows I moved it into the newest st of the newest row as usual
- Dec, 5sc till 2 sts remain, end w/dec
- 4sc, dec till 1 st remains. Change to brown in this last st.
- If youre giving this to a youngling I suggest forgoing the google eyes and embroidering the eyes at this point.
- Working even with brown, work 17 rows
- ON THIS ROW ONLY, TBL FOR EVERY ACTION ON THIS ROW - tbl 4sc, tbl DEC till 1 st remains, tbl 1sc
- 4sc, DEC till 1 stitch remains, 1sc
- 2sc, * DEC, 2sc * around
- * 2sc DEC * around
- * 1sc, DEC * around
- DEC around
- FO leaving long tail to sew up the hole that might be left. If your Yoda looks a little lumpy in some places don't worry, it's pretty easy to shape the toy when you stuff it to make it look how you'd like.

Ears (x2): Note ears are worked back and forth using a turning chain
- W/green ch 6
- Work 8 rows on 5 stitches (6th ch is turning ch)
- DEC, 1sc, DEC
- DEC, 1sc
- DEC, FO
Weave in end. Use the other end, the string left over from when you started, to sew the bottom of the ear together. (Pinch the bottom of the ear, sew in place)

Arms (x2): Note Arms are worked in spirals, do not join rounds
- W/green Ch2
- 6sc in 2nd ch from hook
- 2sc in each stitch
- On these 12 sts work 14 rows
- FO

Feet (x2): Note The feet are just a chain 30 ch long. Take the green yarn used and double it. (What I did was cut a length, very long, of my working yarn then folded it in half). Then chain 30 with the doubled yarn and fasten off. This part can get a little tricky but what you have to do is fold the chain is such a way so that you have 3 points like this: \l/ Sew the chain together so it will keep that shape.

To Assemble: Glue Yoda's eyes on. Then based on that placement pin each of the other pieces, the ears, arms and feet, before sewing them. Once you feel the placement is good go ahead and sew everything in place.


How to make Yodas Lightsaber: Put the glowstick connector at an end of the glowstick. With a little bit of duct tape wrap the connector and just a little bit of the actual stick. With some permanent markers you can decorate the handle of the lightsaber. Use a red marker to draw on the activator button and a black marker to draw some other little details. Snap the glowstick as directed on the package and let Yoda take down some Sith.

I'll start writing up the rest tonight. Thankfull it should go quickly. Rectangles, no problem.
Hopefully this can keep you busy till I'm completely done.

Let me know how is goes

Thank you for the pattern!  You rock!

If you get a chance, is there any way you can take a close up picture of the feet.  That seems to be the only part confusing me right now.

Thank you a million times for the pattern!

Sorry about that.
I'm not very good at clearly explaining things.
Here's are some step by step photos. Hope this helps
 Smiley

Step 1: Double up the yarn used and Chain 30. Fasten Off.

Step 2: (Sorry, forgot to mention this part) Tie the ends together to form a circle


Step 3: Bunch the chain together to form this shape.
It might be a good idea to use safety pins to keep it this way while you sew.


Steps 4, 5 and 6: You can either use one of the 4 tails (normally you'd have 2 tails; one at the beginning and one at the end but remember that since you doubled the yarn you'll have 4 tails, 2 at the beginning, 2 at the end) to secure the shape of the foot or you can cut another lenght of yarn to sew it all together. I used a spearate piece of yarn.




Hopefully this picture doesn't confuse you even more(forgive the blurry red "here"):


Steps 7 and 8: You migh have to bunch the foot together a little more so the toes are close enough together. Once you do that place it as shown on the bottom of Yoda. Once you sew it on only the tips of the toes should be seen. All those pesky ends can just be worked into the toy.

This is the underside of the finished head/body


Here's what it should look like from the front:

This is fantastic! Grin  My son is a star wars nerd child and I'm so gonna make it for him even tho he's 25 years old!  Oh, poor child, to grow up with such a weird mother.   I've just discovered the amigurumi trend even tho I've crocheted since childhood.  When the kids were little, I made them crocheted microphones from the (then new) Annie's Attic magazine, they loved 'em!  I even made a couple more about a year ago for my sister to use with her halloween costume - she and friend went as the blues brothers.  Ahh....I'm rambling. I'm done.  Thanks for the pattern!

You wanna hear about a nerdy child?
When I was 6 years old, with the help of my sister, I put on long black pants, a black shirt, I might have had a cape and I took a paper plate and decorated it to look like Vader's helmet/mask.
I wore it around the house that day for no particular reason.
I've loved Star Wars (and almost all things Sci Fi) since
