Crochet Yoda






As soon as I found this pattern I new I had to make it. How cute is this Crochet Yoda. He's only 4 inches tall and works up quickly. It's a perfect Christmas present for Star Wars fans.

Woodland Blanket C2C Squares

The Big Sale at knitpicks.com



Above patterns can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/teri-heathcote-designs

I was going to wait and get a video tutorial but a few people have been asking for the pattern for the base squares.

These squares work out to measure 12 x 12 inches and are 18 squares high and 18 across.

Materials:

8ply/dk yarn in white (450 grams) and green (300 grams). I used 4 Seasons.
4 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle

Woodland Themed Crochet Applique Set

Crochet Yoda Hat

It's not very often these days that I get to make custom orders for people. I've been so busy lately working on my Under The Sea Blanket but I decided to take a quick break last night to work on something different.

How awesome is this Yoda Hat?
