I came up with a pattern for Luke Skywalker wearing the clothes that we first see him wearing in the original Star Wars film a few years ago (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=338592.msg3918606#msg3918606), but I've always wanted to do more versions of him in some different outfits.



So, I finally got round to doing it recently. I've updated his Tatooine 'farm boy' look by making it a bit more detailed - it really is just layers of different tones of cream and beige, so it's hard to make it look distinctive, especially in such a small figure (he's only 3.5" tall).



Then I made him in his X-Wing pilot uniform - this is much more easily recognisable and I love the way this came out. I had to make the helmet too, though I couldn't think of a way to do the see-through green visor!



Finally I did his simplest look, the all black outfit he wears as a Jedi in Return of the Jedi when he confronts the Emperor. Of course, I had to make him a tiny lightsaber too.



I hope you like these three Lukes - he was always one of my favourite characters so I feel that I've done him justice now.

Squeeeeeeeeeal! Liked his jedi outfit best in the movies, but amigurumi-wise, I must say the X-Wing-fighter looks the best. He even has a helmet!
You did such an amazing job with these! They're so adorable!

Those are so cute Smiley
Maybe you can make a visor using plastic from a green drink bottle (lemon flavored drinks usually come in green bottles, think Sprite or 7Up)

Thanks!

The green plastic is a good idea, I just like to make everything from yarn if I can!
