Here's the second half of my Yoda pattern: Yoda's outfit.
There is some guesswork involved because everyone's toymaking is different. If the cloak comes out too small you might have to use a bigger sized hook or maybe add a few rows (especially for the hood). Or if it's too big you might have to do the opposite.
Here's the basic pattern. Don't be surprised if you have to modify it a little.

Be warned, I'm not good at explaining things. I've tried my best here. I hope that will do. I'd be happy to answer any questions anyone might have of course. The only thing is I'm going on vacation tomorrow so if you ask a question or something and I don't get back to you, it's not because I'm ignoring you; I just don't have internet access.

May the force be with you

Sleeves (x2): CH 18 join with sl st to first ch
- Working in spirals work 14 rows
- Now switching to working back and forth ch 1, turn work 9sc, ch 1, turn
- Work 1 row on these 9 sts, FO

Back Piece (x1):(Worked back and forth): Ch 20
- On 19 sts (20 ch was turning ch) Work 10 rows sc
- DEC, 1sc, DEC, 9sc, DEC, 1sc, DEC
- DEC, 1sc, DEC, 5sc, DEC, 1sc, DEC
- Work 1 more row sc
- FO

Front Pieces (x2): (Worked back and forth - There's no right or wrong side here. Because both pieces are the same when sewing the everything together just turn one of these pieces around to fit correctly): CH 12
- On 11 sts (12 ch was turning ch) work 10 rows
- 7sc, ch 1, turn, work 2 rows on just these 7sts
- FO

Hood (x1): CH 31
- On 30 sts work15 rows sc
- * DEC, 1sc * across
- DEC, * 1sc, DEC * across
- *DEC, 1sc* till 1sc remains, 1sc
- Continue in this manner (Work DEC, 1sc across rows) until 6 sts are left
- FO
Fold hood in half. Sew the final edge to itself.

To Assemble:
Put the sleeves on Yoda. The little flap on each sleeve should face upwards. Pin the back piece and front pieces together on Yoda. Using an invisible stitch sew the cloak's pieces together while it is on Yoda to ensure a good fit. To put the hood on: the starting chain will rest on the top of Yoda's head, the cast off side will be sewn to itself and the two edges will be sewn to top of the back piece and the tops of the sleeves (using the flaps). There might be a triangle left between the bottom of the hood and the top of the back piece depending on your tension or how firmly you stuffed your Yoda. If so I suggest picking up stitches in the middle of the top of the back piece and for a triangle that you can sew to the hood.
As with most everything weave in ends when you're done. It would be a good idea to use some of the tails for sewing.

Even more fantastic, you are! Thanks again for sharing this pattern! I have some Yoda fleece to edge for a blanket for my brother and I think a Yoda doll would be the perfect thing to go with it (although I do fear that it may become a dog toy...).


The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

So, sadly I'm back from vacation. It was so nice and warm where I went.
I really didn't want to leave because it's so very cold and snowy where I am now.
Anyways, if anyone has any problems or finds mistakes with the Yoda and cloak patterns please let me know.
