“Yoda, you seek Yoda!”  *Theme of the Force starts playing*
Sorry, I had to start with a Yoda quote/flourish.  They’re all pretty memorable and well, it’s Yoda.  Needless to say Beau was very excited when I started working on him.  Especially when I told him Yoda would be close to “life” size.  I finished him much more quickly than expected, and have already had quite a bit of fun with him.  He’s very possible (his eyelids move to give expression, as does his mouth, and his arms and legs are pretty bendable as well.  It’s funny to think that three years ago I didn’t even care to see Star Wars and now I’m making amigurumis of it (which I also couldn’t have done three years ago).  I think Beau feels a little bad for turning me to the nerd side of the force, but its hard to complain with the results.
I hope you like this pattern as much as both Beau and I do.
A video will be coming up within the next 2 weeks showing you how to assemble his head.  This way it will be easier for people to follow along with the step by step directions.

As always the pattern is on my blog:http://shedko247.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/yoda/

Great job, it looks very faithful to the movies!  Love the pics on your blog post!  It sounds like a fun project since his expression is changeable.

Awesome, this is! I've bookmarked it here, and at your blog so I can keep track of it. It's definitely something I'd love to make, and I think my skills may be up for the challenge. Of course, the problem will be that it'd make a great gift for my brother, but I know I'll want to keep it. So, I'll just give him something else Smiley

Thanks for sharing your Yoda!

This is really awesome. I accepted I can't crochet and seeing things like this make me so sad inside. I would love to be able to sit there all day and crochet star wars creatures. ;-;

Wonderful job! Thank you for the pattern. Another on my to-do list! LOL How tall is he?

He is about 1 foot 3 inches.  So right around half his literal height. Smiley
