My husband requested Blizz from Star Wars the Old Republic and so of course I had to make him! (He doesn't request things very often)

     

To see a bunch of in progress pictures and a few others see my blog: http://mostlynerdycrochet.blogspot.com/2011/10/jawa.html

     

Thanks everyone for taking a look!



Body
Ch 45
sc 5 = rows
dec every 8th stitch for 2 rows
4 = rows
dec every 10th stitch for 1 row
2 = rows
dec every 5th stitch for 1 row
make approximately 1 inch of = rows (I lost the exact count, sorry hahah)
Tie off

Arms
ch 9
sc 5 = rows
inc every 4th stitch for 3 rows
2 = rows
tie off
attach to body
repeat, attach to other side of body.

Hood
ch 20 and attach to body (see pictures) leave several stitches between the attachment points.
sc all the way around the hood, body, shoulders, etc.
3 = rows EXCEPT dec twice at the shoulder and hood connection for the 3 rows
dec every 6th stitch until approximately a quarter size hole is left
dec every 3rd stitch until the point comes together.
Tie off
Sc almost a full row around his hood in grey for the frosted detail.

Details
Face: Cut out a rounded piece of black felt and just sort of stuff it in his hood (I didn't bother to even sew it in!) Glue or sew on little yellow eyes.
Patches: grey felt sewn on with embroidery floss to make the stitches stand out.
Sash: one long strip of brown felt with embroidered details on the edges.
Hands: felt folded in half with rounded edges (there's a little foil gun inserted into his grip).
Shoulder pads: cut out pointed bits of felt and line with the same grey as the hood. Sew around so the yarn is incorporated around the felt.

Yay, jawa and a versatile robe pattern! Now I'll be haunted by this because I know someone who'd love this and had his birthday recently...

Thanks for putting a positive spin on poor Blizz. I didn't realize that the game isn't actually out yet (husband is beta testing) so no one knows who he is!! For the basic Jawa just leave off the patches and white trim Smiley

Cheers.

Thanks!!
