*I have received a couple comments saying they think The Child’s head is oval, I assume from the top down. It isn’t. See photos below. If you think it’s too round from the front you can skip rnd 9 to sc around once less before the cheeks.
This is worked in a continuous spiral (you don’t need to slst ch at the end of each row). Place a marker at the start of each row if that’s your preferred way of tracking.
Rnd 1: 9 sc into a Magic Circle (9 st)
Rnd 2: (2 sc in next stitch) around (18 st)
Rnd 3: (2sc in next st, sc) around (27 st)
Rnd 4: (sc in next 2 st, 2sc in next st) around (36 st)
Rnd 5-9: sc around
Rnd 10: (top of cheeks) sc into next 11 stitches, (sc, hdc) into next stitch, 2dc into next stitch, 2dc into next stitch, (hdc, sc) into next stitch, sc into next 6 stitches,
(sc, hdc) into next stitch, 2dc into next stitch, 2dc into next switch, (hdc, sc) into next stitch, Sc into next 11 stitches (44 st)
Rnd 11: sc into next 11 stitches, dec, dc2tog twice, dec, sc into next 6 stitches, dec, dc2tog twice, Dec, Sc into next 11 stitches (36 st)
Rnd 12: (dec, sc in next 2 st) around (27 st)
Rnd 13: (sc in next st, dec) around (18 st)
Place eyes. Eyes should be positioned between rnds 8 & 9, above the edge of the cheeks. There should be 4 stitches between the eyes if you use 16mm safety eyes.
Firmly stuff head. Be sure to push stuffing into cheeks so they pop out more.
Rnd 14: dec around (9 st)
Rnd 15-17: (making the neck) sc around
Rnd 18: (2sc in next st) around (18 st)
Rnd 19: (2sc in next st, sc) around (27 st)
Rnd 20-28: sc around.
Sl st and finish off with tail for sewing.
Legs (make 2):
Rnd 1: Sc 7 in MC (7 st)
Rnd 2: (2sc in next st) around (14 st)
Rnd 3: Sc in back loop only around (14 st)
Rnd 4-8: Sc around
Sl st and fasten off with tail for sewing.
Assemble by sewing legs to the bottom of body, stuffing firmly before finishing.
Ears are made separately and sewn on.
Right Ear: (on the left when looking at his face)
Row 1: ch 2, sc in 2nd chain from hook. Ch 1 and turn (1 st)
Row 2: 2sc in st, ch 1 and turn (2 st)
Row 3: sc in next st, 2sc in next st, ch 1 and turn (3 st)
Row 4: 2sc in next st, sc in next 2 st, ch 1 and turn (4 st)

Row 14: sc across, sc into sides of stitches of the 14 rows across curve of ear, Ch 2 and sl st into 2nd chain from hook, sl st into sides of stitches of the 14 rows across the top of the ear.
Row 14 broken down with pictures: sc across,
Sc into sides of stitches around curved edge,
Ch 2 and sl st into 2nd chain from hook,
slst into sides of stitches across top of ear.
Color pink of ears using a pink highlighter. Test on a swatch of green first to find one you like.
Left Ear: (on the right when looking at his face)

Ch 9, join into circle without twisting chain. Leave a long train before initial slip knot for sewing.
Rnd 1: sc into each chain (9 st)
Rnd 2-9: sc around
Rnd 10: (fingers). Sl st into next stitch. (dec in next stitch, ch 2, then sl st into 2nd chain from the hook, sl st into 2nd stitch of the decrease), 3 times, sl st, and finish off with tail for sewing. Sew the finger end of the hand flat.
Rnd 10 (fingers) alternate: I like my fingers because they’re pointy like in the show, but if they’re confusing or you don’t like the look you can just flatten the end of the yarn and Ch 3, sl st across to make simpler fingers.
Stuff firmly, then sew the chain end of the arm flat.
Attach arms inline with his ears, starting at about Rnd 20:
Row 1: Ch 31, turn, sc across (30 st)
Row 2-12: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 13: (this row has the arm holes) For clarity I am just writing out every stitch in order, instead of trying to group repeated stitches:
sc, sc, dec, sc, ch 7, sc in 4th sc from hook, sc, dec, sc, sc, dec, sc, sc, dec, sc, sc, ch 7, sc in 4th sc from hook, dec, sc, sc.
Visual of Row 13:

This Yoda is really adorable. What yarn did you use?
I used Big Twist yarn in Light Green from Joanns for Baby Yoda. Any worsted weight yarn would work. For the cream and grey doll I used Big Twist Soft Grey for the cowl and a cream color I already had. Big Twist had a very similar cream.
The tan I already had too – I believe it is Red Heart Super Saver in Latte.
How much yarn was required? I want to make one but I want to buy all the supplies at once.
I haven’t measured a full amount but well under a skein of each. If you buy a new skein of green you should get at least 2 yodas out of it. The others use pretty tiny amounts so you’ll be more than fine.
i got like 4 yodas from one green skein of caron 6oz/170g
I’m getting ready to make this Yoda I was wondering if you had any request to make it bigger the overall Yoda I’d like to make it 12 inches have you had any request for the increase of size
No, I’m not going to do that. If you want a larger figure I recommend looking for another pattern. There are a lot on etsy.
You can generally double your yarn strand and use a larger hook and that will make your project larger.
To make it bigger just use a different size hook 😊
I just completed this pattern and it truly is adorable. I made minor change (3 chains for the fingers) I also added a brow ridge and mouth. Since I give these to small children, I never wise hard eyes, I always crochet the eyes. That said, thank you for creating the pattern.
Ann R, wondering how you added a brow ridge and mouth? Simple embroidery?
You can crochet a chain and sew it on – I did this for a mouth, 8 chain with a slightly smaller hook. I embroidered the eyebrows just going over the same ridge until it was thick enough.
To add brows I just chained 7 leaving long ends at both ends and then sewed them on with a couple off stitches along the way
Thank you for your creative crocheting skills to make this pattern, I plan to make for grandkids
I am new at this do you have a video on how to sew baby Yoda together. I never made this before.?
There are lots of resources and videos on how to sew together or assemble amigurumi. That’s what you should search for.
So sorry but I can’t find where to post a new question, on the head rows 11 you say dec??? Then dc 2 together, like this
Rnd 11: sc into next 11 stitches, dec, dc2tog twice, dec, sc into next 6 stitches, dec, dc2tog twice, Dec, Sc into next 11 stitches (36 st)
Rnd 12: (dec, sc in next 2 st) around (27 st)
Rnd 13: (sc in next st, dec) around (18 st)
Question is the dec just a warning that the 2tog is a dec? Or do you mean a sc dec????
Hi! Sorry for the delayed response, it got lost in the spam messages. When I say dec I mean sc2tog, and when I say dc2tog I mean dc2tog. I just grew up with the dec terminology!
So anytime you see dec it means to do a sc2tog, it’s not a warning.
If you have any more questions feel free to email me at email@example.com, I’ll get back to you right away!
I do not understand the jacket arms.
Rnd 1 do you mean row 13?
Don’t understand Rnd 2.
Also on head/body. Rnd 11 should you end with sc 11?
Sorry, good catch! I lost half the line on row 11. After the dec you should sc 11 and end up with 36 stitches again. Basically you’re decreasing at the same spots you increased to make the shape of the cheeks.
And also you’re right I meant rnd 13 – I added a couple rows to the height of baby Yoda after seeing him in episode 4 (his jacket makes proportions hard to track!) and I missed updating that spot. That should be fixed too now.
Thank you for the notes!
Edit: I updated the pattern for a more clear method for the arms of the jacket.
Where can I find the pattern of the one with the cup?
I updated the pattern to include the bowl. I changed the arms of the jacket, so you don’t need to worry about the sleeves being too short.
You’re awesome! Thanks
A little confusing when you say sc dec I don’t know what you mean . Please explain. Round 12, 13
Do a decrease then Sc in the next stitch. Sometime decrease is called sc2tog. Basically you’re reducing the stitches to shape the head before doing the neck.
Is that what you were asking?
So when you instruct dec, dc2tog, dec, you mean sc2tog? I’m getting confused on line 12 of the head too. Btw, I’m having so much fun with this project! Thank you!
It should sc2tog, dc2tog, sc2tog. I always use dec instead of sc2tog but they mean the same thing. In round 12 its the same thing – you should sc2tog, then sc in the next 2 stitches that round (it should be 6 times).
Is that what you were asking?
I do not have much knowledge about crotchet is there any way I could get a video of the stitches, like the SCx2,DEC2TOG, I have no idea, magic ring, lost. Want to learn, Grandma taught me CS (chain stitch) and not much else. Please want to learn. Thank you in advance..
There are lots of resources online, like crochet corner and all over YouTube. You should be able to find instructions pretty easily. These are all very basic stitches, there’s nothing fancy in it.
Go on YouTube and you can get all of that there. The Crochet Crowd page has a ton of videos on all kinds of stitches. Good luck.
There are lots of YouTube videos on the different stitches. I didn’t know what those abbreviations meant or how to sew them either so I looked them up.
What color highlighter did you use? Thanks! Super cute. My husband is soooo excited.
I used a pink highlighter. I recommend making a small swatch in green and coloring it to make sure you like how the color comes out. Some liquid highlighters get too goopy.
I use a powder blush and a small makeup brush. I know that if the doll is washed the blush will wash out but I’m assuming that it won’t be washed (hopefully).
I’m confused on the 13th row of the jacket that has the arm holes.
Are you supposed to Dec three times like the first half of the row?
I’m not sure what you’re asking but here’s every stitch in that row written in order:
Row 13: sc, sc, dec, sc, ch 7 and sc in 4th st from hook, sc, dec, sc, sc, dec, sc, sc, dec, sc, sc, ch 7 and sc in 4th st from hook, dec, sc, sc
The part I’m confused on is the ch 7 and sc in 4th st from hook . Do you mean skip 4 stitches or in the 4th chain?
Skip 3 stitches and Sc in the 4th stitch from the hook. Not chain, stitch.
Thank you and I love this pattern you did great. 🙂
Glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for this free pattern. I got started this morning and I have the head, body and legs done! I want to make the jacket removable, wouldn’t that be possible following the rest of the pattern?
If you don’t sew the front of the jacket together, it will be removable. You need to figure out your own way to keep it closed though, like a belt or button or whatever.
Hi, I’m struggling with that row too (row 13). I’m doing exactly what you’ve written above but that’s 31 stitches worth and the row is only 30 stitches long. Could you please explain? Thanks, Alison
I mistyped after the second set of chs- it should be sc into the 4th st from hook, then dec, sc, sc. it’s correct in the pattern with a picture and close up on that part.
(Apparently I can edit comments which I didn’t realize so I corrected it in the comment also).
I think that round 13 is confusing because you say “skip 4 st from the hook.” Why not skip the words “from the hook” and imply say “ch 7, skip 3 sc, sc 1 in the 4th.” You could add “thus making the loop horn inn picture which will be used to attach the sleeve.”
No one else seems to have had the problem of a skinny neck making a flopping head. I had to nail down the head.
But hey, he is adorable and I had a great time making him (him? Her?) Many thanks.
Hi, thank you for the pattern. I was wondering if we need to close up the bottom of the body since you changed the leg part of the pattern or if we just sew the legs to the open part.
If you’re asking what I think, just sew the legs to the open part and sew the legs together so there’s not an opening for fluff to go out.
You can see the photo of the three pieces (two legs and body) then the next one of them assembled.
that’s what I thought, thank you for the clarification…3 more rows and the head and body will be done!!! 😀
Hello, does the bottom part of the body stay open until legs are sewed on?
Hello! Do you know about how much yarn you used? I have about a half of a skein (green) but I’m wondering if it would be enough. Thanks!
That should be enough. I made nearly 3 out of a skein. If you think you’re running short, you could substitute the last Sc rows of the body with another color since it will be under the jacket anyway.
The two figures also look like they have noses but there is no note of how to add them? Could you let me know how to add them?
I just took some green yarn on a sewing needle, went in from the back of the head, and wrapped around a stitch between the eyes a few times until I was happy with the size of the nose, then finished by passing the yarn back through the back of the head again.
i have never attempted anything like this (amigurumi) before, but this is just SO adorable and i know someone who would just be thrilled to have this! i can’t wait to try it. Thanks for your generosity and all the clarifications 🙂
Hi and thanks for the pattern. Is the cowl supposed to be longer than the width of the neck? I am not also understanding the placement and how it looks after sewn on. Is there a pic of what it looks like sewn on with jacket laid open?
The cowl is supposed to be a lot bigger than the neck of The Child to get that oversized coat feel. I don’t have a picture on hand but the next doll I make I’ll get a photo. Another approach is to take cowl, put it around TC’s neck, and sew or use a clip to hold the ends together. Then position it how you feel it looks right and stitch it to the jacket while it’s still on the doll. That’s what I did with my last couple dolls.
Could you give me some tips, I don’t really know how to crochet without a loom, but the person I want to give it to would love it. About how much time did this take and could I do it on a loom?
I’ve never crocheted with a loom, so I can’t really speak to the differences. It’s crocheted in the round so I’m guessing not?
I’d recommend looking up resources like crochet.com or thesprucecrafts.com to learn the standard crochet stitch techniques. This doll is mainly done in single crochet with increases and decreases.
How do you suggest making this full size?
You could try a bigger needle, but it probably wouldn’t look great with the gaps between the stitches.
Otherwise you really need to look for another pattern.
Sooo. It looks like your pattern has gone a little viral. I just wanted to give you a heads up. I know you know what happened with the other lady
Thanks! I’m hoping since I’m not making a profit it won’t bother the powers that be.
Where did you see it?
I just found it through Facebook on the Moms.com page then went to the Instagram picture and profile posted! I now know what I’m making this weekend. So excited! Great job on the pattern!
Great! Send me a picture of how it turns out 🙂
I could not find 16mm eyes either. I used 15mm and they looked fine.
Thank you for this pattern! Can’t wait to make these!
I hope you enjoy it! Send me pictures of how it turns out!
Thank you so very much for all your time, effort and adorable, baby Yoda. And to offer your pattern for free to we follow crocheted and crafters is truly a blessing! Thank you again, and ” May the force be with you “
Thank you for your kind comment!
Many thanks for having a generous spirit by offering the pattern for free.
Thank you so much for the pattern. I just finished the body and will post pics. when I’m done.
Thanks for this!
I am unable get round 11 at all —–from what should do after sc 11 st I should dc 11 st? then dc 2 sts tog twice sc 6 then dc 2 tog twice more dec and then 11 sc again it does not work for me for some reason and still have 36 st? could you explain it better thank you and for the the pattern
I think you need to reread that line. There’s no dc 11, and you should end up with 36 st.
Basically you’re scing to where you expanded for the cheeks in rnd 10 and doing decreases to bring it back down to 36 stitches.
I wrote out the middle part stitch by stitch, it might be clearer.
sc 11, dec, dc2tog, dc2tog, dec, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, dec, dc2tog, dc2tog, Dec, Sc 11
how did you get the inside of the ears to be brown?
I don’t see it in the pattern
I just do not want to miss it!
I actually colored it in with pink highlighter! I recommend making a small swatch of your green yarn and test your marker on it first. Some highlighters are goopy, and a pink marker could work too.
I’ll make sure it’s more clear in the instructions.
oh I see!
thank you so much!
now that I look back I realized I totally skipped over that bit!
Hi, how could I crochet the inner pink ear? Do you have a pattern for this too?
I’m confused with the head part where it says (top of cheek) 11 sc. does that mean to make 11 sc in next stitch? I did that but a joke forms where the cheeks are and it doesn’t look like yours 🙁 what am I doing wrong?
No, you Sc once in the first 11 stitches.
Thank you so much for sharing the pattern! I just finished BabyYoda 2.0 – this time making the robe a little wider to allow for Velcro tab as well as a pair of tighty whitey underwear upon the recommendations from my son’s sixth grade class. He is adorable!
Fantastic! Send pictures!
Thanks. Would help if I read properly haha. I’ll blame it on being tired haha.
No worries! I went back and changed the wording in that line anyway. I know the top of the jacket is the most confusing part. I might need to tweak it again to be easier/clearer.
So so cute! Thank you for coming up with this pattern. I hope I will be able to make one for my two daughters. You are so clever.
How big is it if i use the same size hook you did?
approx. 6″ tall, 2.25″ deep, 9.25″ wide from ear-tip to ear-tip.
In round 10 of the head, 2dc into next stitch(twice) does that mean 2dc in 2 separate stitches or a total of 4 dc in 1 st?
2dc in one stitch then 2dc in the next. If I meant 4 in one I would have written it as 4dc in next stitch. I’m not trying to be tricky here 🙂
Hello 🙂 thank you so much for your patter! Making it as a christmas present for a friend :). I‘m just wandering when you attach the ears, before or after stuffing the head?
After stuffing the head. If you’re putting in safety eyes that should happen before you stuff it, but ears definitely come later. I’d recommend sewing on legs first, then arms (pin ears in place to make sure you’re lining up how you want to), then ears last. Otherwise they flop and get pushed around and get in the way.
Good question- I struggled with the same thing!
Hi there. I’m sure I’m reading this wrong as no one else is having difficulties with the cowl. Mine seems much to long. Was I suppose to fold it so the width of six stitches remains. Or the other way so that it’d be three stitches.
I like to hold it up to the doll and see how it looks. Generally I’ve been folding them so it’s more like 4 stitches with 2 folded back so the top is the curved smooth cloth instead of the rough edge, and it sits better to look like the collar.
thank you so much for replying and the pattern I really appreciated
Well done – thank you for your generosity in offering your pattern for free. Crocheting amigurumi is pretty challenging, so that was really kind of you to share your pattern.
I’m glad you like it!
By far the best pattern I’ve seen. Seriously,great job and thanks for taking the time to put it together. I made some changes for my own personal method of creating stuffies; he’s just so freaking adorable I can’t stand it! I’ll tag you on IG when I post it.
I’m looking forward to seeing it!
“Row 14: sc across, then sl st around the edges of the piece.
“sl st into sides of stitches across top of ear, Ch 2 and sl st into 2nd chain from hook, sc into sides of stitches around curved edge.”
For the ears, is the info. below/after Row 14 directions on how to “sl st around the edges of the piece” or directions to go around the ear another/a second time?
No, finish row 14 then do the instructions. I must have forgotten to take that out when I switched to SC along the curved side. It is fine if you just Sl st around, but no need to do it twice!
Hello, thanks for this pattern he is so cute! I wanted to try to make one as a Christmas present, but I’m wondering how long it took you to make because I’m not sure I’ll be able to have it ready by Christmas. Thanks again.
I’ve found it takes me about 8 hrs of work to finish one, but I work pretty fast.
So it should be doable but it might take over all your free time.
Thanks for replying! I am going to try to make it! Thanks for the great pattern!
Hello! I understand the decrease two together but how do you just decrease? I can’t find anything on youtube(sorry in advance)
Sometimes called sc2tog
I’m a little confused about the ear. It says to sc across (does this mean the side with the 5 sc I just did?), then sl st around the edges of the piece (would this be around the whole ear,like a 360 around?).
sl st into sides of stitches across top of ear, Ch 2 and sl st into 2nd chain from hook, sc into sides of stitches around curved edge. I’m confused here because I’m not sure where the step above will end
Thanks! This is awesome btw.
I added some photos.
Thank you so much!!! You are incredible.
For the jacket arms, which end is attached to the jacket, Round 1 or Round 8? I get that the dc sts are facing the back, just not which end attaches to the jacket.
Also, the sleeve embellishments, are they attached over/on top of the end of the sleeve or at the end of the sleeve, making the sleeve longer than it would be without it?
Thank you much.
Round one is sewed to the jacket, the wider end closer to his hand.
The embellishment goes over the arm, not at the end of the arm, but if you feel the jacket is too short you can put it at the end.
I’m stuck at the ears. How do I “start” the ears? I can see about where and can only assume it is built off the head as opposed to built separate and sewn on… but I’m confused at how…
It’s made separate and sewn on.
I’m struggling with the ears.
I posted earlier but I don’t see it here.
How do we start the ears exactly?
It looks like we build them off the head and not separate like the limbs. But how do we start?
I already replied to you. I added some photos to the ear.
I absolutely love this pattern. I am kinda lost on the last part of the ears prior to highlighter use. Not sure how I’m missing it.
I added some photos.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to create this pattern and for sharing it! I literally picked up yarn yesterday to try to cobble together something on my own then I found your pattern this morning. I’ll be making this later today. Simply awesome!
Hello, I’m a little confused on row 14. Are we just sc in the stitches between the arm holes?
No. Re-read the line, it says all the stitches that go into the row.
Hello! I am having some problems doing the eyes actually, the rest of the pattern I’ve been able to easily follow but I can’t figure out how you got the eyes secured. Did you use thread or yarn? I bought 12mm that look just like this but the hole is too small for yarn so I had to use thread and it’s sooo not fun to work with. Could you show some photos or a video on what you did to secure them?
Safety eyes should come with a washer to secure them. Here are some reference videos. I really recommend using 16mm eyes instead of 12mm ones if you want that big eyed Baby Yoda look.
okay, I will definitely go back to Joanns tonight and buy some then! thank you!
I get my eyes at hobby lobby 1.99
This is so adorable! My boys love the show and the baby Yoda. I’ll definitely be making them one each to put in their Christmas stocking 💓💓
Did you add anything for the mouth? or just left it be? PS… thank you for allowing this pattern to be free!
I tried doing a mouth but took it back out because I didn’t personally like it. I usually don’t even put in noses, haha.
I find the shape of the cheeks implies the mouth but feel free to embroider on a mouth if you want to!
Hi,I have one question that I haven’t seen addressed. This is my first time trying amigurumi, when you work in the round like this, are we to slip stitch to the first stitch as we finish each round? Thanks! I’m really excited to work this up!
This is worked in a spiral with the first stitch marked in whichever method you prefer. Some use the sl st and ch 1 method but I don’t like it because it leaves a seam.
Is this working in a spiral? Do we join at the end of each round on the head? Sorry-this is my first attempt at amigurumi…thanks.
Sorry, this comment got buried. Yes it is worked in a spiral.
This is amazing and on my to do list. I am very basic in my crochet skills so do you have a suggested video or site on how to learn the stitches and how to read the directions. It’s like gibberish to me.
A basic Google search will get you a lot of resources.
Hi! Thank you for the pattern. I’m wondering how you get the ears to stay sticking out? Thanks!
The Sc along the curved size helps it be stiffer but generally I just pull them out if they get folded in and they tend to hold. If they’re super floppy maybe try doing another pair holding your yarn tighter. Or you could feed some thin wire through the top row to help keep it stiff.
I’m up to Rnd 10 but wanted to skip the cheeks. What are the steps to doing no cheeks up until the neck part? I’m still kinda new to crocheting…
Just Sc once in each stitch that has two in the row that expands the cheeks, and once in each stitch in the row that decreases the cheeks.
If you don’t like how that looks, there are plenty of patterns without cheeks out there.
Could you write that out stitch by stitch? Is it, sc into next 11 st, (sc) into next st, (2dc into next st) twice, and so in? I’m having a hard time figuring it out, sorry :/ Appreciate the help
For Rnd 10 & 11, just sc around. Not sure how good it will look, but it will skip the cheeks. Like I said, you can find plenty of other Yoda patterns without cheeks if you want it to look another way.
Thank you for the great pattern. I was wondering if I could get a copy of the little bed he is in. L
What are you talking about? His little egg pod or something in a photo of mine?
If the egg pod, then I haven’t made that pattern and I don’t know why you think I’d have a copy of it to send to you. I’m not going to make a brand new pattern for you, you should be content with the pattern I already chose to share for free.
I love this. I added a few embellishments and I liked a Greyish green color for baby yoda. And big eyes cause his eyes are so cute.
Do you happen to sell the finished product?
Not at this time.
Mistake right ear row 4 should read:
Sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st. Very cute pattern
You are incorrect, it reads the way it is supposed to. The ears don’t expand evenly, they expand to create the curve of the ear on one side and the flat top of the ear on the other.
Excellent pattern! I had a lot of fun making it. I wanted it to be bigger and so I used a more plush yarn and I changed the ears up but otherwise this is awesome! Would love to send you a picture of how it turned out! Also I will probably EVENTUALLY get around to posting mine on my blog and I look forward to pinning back to you! Great job!
That’s great! Definitely send me a picture!
Could this be done in dk yarn if so how would i go about that?
I’m not sure why it couldn’t? I guess you might want to use a different sized needle if you’re finding the stitches are too far apart.
This is such a cute baby Yoda! I’m at the point of starting the legs & wonder if row 1- (sc 7 in mc ) should go in a chain circle?
The legs start from the bottom of the foot, so using a magic circle will look better.
Thanks!! I was so confused because I was reading MC as “main color”. I need a nap. 😉
On the ears, when you say to stitch in the SIDES of the stitches, what do you mean? Is it supposed to be just one loop?
I’m not new to crocheting, but I am new to connecting the pieces. Did you use a yarn needle and just sew the legs on? Or did you attach it using a specific crochet stitch?
Yarn needle. I usually use whip stitch. If you look up joining amigurumi pieces, there are a lot of great web and YouTube resources to help guide you.
Thank you so much! I love this pattern. You’ve done an awesome job with this and I’m excited to have the opportunity to attempt it. Happy holidays!
Hello, I know I saw a post about this earlier. But I’m still confused on the cowl of the jacket. I did the 2 to 4 ratio for the sewing in half. But it’s so long! When sewing the square part over the pointy part is it fine if it overlaps by about 7-8 rows? Or is in suppose to be right on top of the pointy part when sewing.
Thanks so much! I really enjoy this pattern and your an awesome crafter for doing it for free and helping us all out!!
I’m glad you’re enjoying the pattern!
It is supposed to overlap some, but more than that it’s longer so you can have it spaced away from his head/neck. If you look at pictures of The Child, the neck/cowl of his jacket is really wide, almost as wide as his head. If you feel it’s too long, you can always pull out some rows to your preference.
Hi. THANK YOU for making this pattern available to us. I have found that with the help of your answered questions, the directions are pretty easy. My questions have to do with sharing our work & if there is any problem with doing them for friends. I have my own Facebook page that I share my personal work on, mostly name doilies. Can I post pictures of my finished Baby Yoda on that page? Thanks again, Janis
For sure! If you could link back to my page or credit me for the pattern that would be great.
I always support people showing off their work (and I always enjoy seeing people’s finished projects)!
Where do I send you a picture?
You can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
Hey I’m making this as a gift for my mom (she loves baby yoda) and I was wondering if it would look any different with 18mm eyes or 12/14mm eyes or where I could buy the correct size?
18mm tends to be too big, 14mm might work but 12mm is definitely too small.
I got mine off Amazon.
Okay thank u so much I’ll try to find them in time for Christmas love the pattern by the way
Thanks for your lovely pattern. I made The Child and cowl easily from your directions however I made my own jacket design. Thanks for sharing it so freely!!
I’m a little stuck on the head for row 12. My stitches is 36 count for row 11, but when I do the Dec, Sc all the way around for round 12, I only end up with 24 stitches rather than 27. What am I doing wrong? Thanks again, looking forward to the finished product.
Make sure you’re only doing 9 (Dec, Sc), which is a full round. If you’re starting with 36 and doing (Dec, Sc) around you will end up with 27, that’s just math.
Thank you so much for this. Just wondering if, when you made yours, did you flip it inside out so that the right side faces out? Or did you leave it with the wrong side facing out as it naturally curls when you make it up? I hope that makes sense!
Not sure I follow you – you should be working with the right side facing out always. If yours isn’t, I recommend googling crocheting in the round or basic amigurumi techniques to see where you’re going wrong.
Some patterns can be done with either side facing out. Thanks for the reply, I’ll work this one with the right side facing out.
So I actually have made three of these, working on my fourth for gifts, and I have found the 18mm and 20mm look so adorable and cute. It did take some trial and error figuring out which ones I liked but those worked for me personally as they normally take up baby yodas whole face lol.
One question I did have though is the placement of the ears, are there certain rows and alignment you generally follow to make sure they are even? I try to use stitch markers but they do still come out uneven. Let me know!
Can you send me photos of your 18mm and 20mm eyed Yodas? I tried those but never managed to position them in a place that looked right to me, so I’d love to see yours 🙂
I always make sure the base of the ear hits between the first and second row of the cheeks in height, then behind one stitch back from the cheek in horizontal position. Then it should be about 4 stitches from the eyes on the way up, if you’re using the 16mm eyes and placed them where I do.
That should put your ears about evenly across from each other and a hair forward from center.
But mostly I position one where I’m happy, do the other one, then fix the first one if needed.
(maybe I’ll count out stitches to put markers the next time I make one)
I know you are saying that you were only charging for Etsy fees, but you still need to remove it. Disney does not see it that way. Disney sees it as you selling their image, for money. Do yourself a favor and remove it. It takes one person to report you.
Disney has a vast legal department with teams who are on top of this, they don’t really need to rely on individual reports when they can search Etsy and the web on their own. If they reach out to me or to Etsy to take it down I absolutely will. I can also show them I’m not making money on it there.
I also state in the listing on Etsy that it is free on my web site. I mainly put it up there so somebody else doesn’t take my free pattern and put it up there for $5+. I’m doing what I can to share this pattern with integrity.
You’ve done an amazing job with this pattern and your expansions on directions in response to feedback. I loved finding a free pattern that I could easily follow and gave me an adorable young one upon completion. So satisfying! Can’t thank you enough for posting and for being gracious by going into such detail! I may have missed it, and I did fine just from looking at pictures, but did you review sewing on ears? Mine looked good but flopped a lot. I couldn’t get them to stand out straight on their own,I ended up stitching a pipe cleaner around the back of the ears and head and it worked great (just looks goofy).
That’s a good solution. Mine flop sometimes too but hold shape when I pull them out. For anyone it bothers I recommend doing what you did, or try crocheting tighter to make them a little stiffer.
Hi, for the first row of the jacket arms it says to ch 13. But when I complete row 2 following you instructions I have created 16 sts but I have 2 stitches left over from previous row. Can you explain please.
Did you forget to do the part in the parenthesis twice?
Rnd 2: sc 3, (2sc in next st, sc in next 2 st) two times, 2sc in next st, sc in next 3 st. (16 st)
Sc sc Sc 2sc Sc Sc 2sc sc Sc 2sc Sc Sc sc. That’s 13. You shouldn’t have 2 stitches left over.
Just want to say I finished my first baby Yoda! Thanks so much!! My 11 year old will love it! For the jacket, I made my cow and sleeve right on the jacket in the same color. Ch 31 wants long enough for my chunky guy. I had to add tow rows of DC to the edge of the jacket and I like it! I just need to find eyes!! I’ll send you a pic!
Thank you for an awesome pattern! I’ve tried too Google/Youtube how to “decrease” (dec). Is the abbreviation “dec” the same as “sc dec” aka single crochet decrease?
I could not find any tutorials for “decrease”.
Sometimes called sc2tog
I am a knitter, but this pattern is just too cute not to try. (The knit patterns aren’t as good) I will let you you know how it turns out. I am very impressed that you are updating the pattern and answering all the questions. That is so kind of you!
Hi! I’m on number 7 BabyYoda! I’ve been crocheting for fifty years and my friends are begging me to make it! I don’t write patterns so I really enjoyed your pattern! I can now whip them up fast! Your pattern is a good one! Thank you for sharing it!
I’m glad you’re enjoying it!
Thank you for sharing you wonderful pattern. You are so talented. I am confused by the body after row 28. There is no row 29 and should I be doing 30-33 or is the end of the body at row 28 and sew the legs onto that. Thanks in advance for your help,
The body ends after Rnd 28, sl st and cut with yarn for sewing. Then do the legs and sew them on.
Thanks for answering my silly question so fast.
Hey, thanks so much for the pattern! For the jacket arms, what do you mean by the dc sts go at the back?
When sewing the arms onto the jacket, the dc area should all be pointed to the back of the jacket. That way when you pull his arms forward (like he’s holding a bowl) the jacket still covers most of his arms instead of the outside part of the arm being exposed.
can I sell the baby Yoda I make? Of course, I will give credit to you for the pattern.
I definitely do not want people selling them online on etsy, eBay, or other sites from my pattern. That is not in the spirit with why I put this pattern online for free.
If you sell them locally to friends or at craft fairs, I’m okay with that personally but you do it at your own risk since this character belongs to Disney and they can go after anyone profiting from it.
Thank you so much for the pattern!
What method do you use to prevent holes on the underside of his head when decreasing? I have done lots of reading and video watching but would like to hear what work best for this project.
If you’re comfortable with it, I always recommend doing an invisible decrease for any amigurumi project. It’s a bit more advanced but easy once you get the hang of it and it always looks great.
Here are a couple of tutorials:
I just finished! Thank you for sharing your pattern, it was super easy to follow and I was able to finish in a couple days. Instead of buttons I’m going to try embroidering the eyes on my next one. I couldn’t find safety buttons at my store and I want to make one for my niece and nephew (they’re under 3). I’ll let you know how that goes!
Thanks so much for the pattern! This was my first amigurumi project so it was a bit of a challenge but Baby Yoda turned out perfectly. My boyfriend loves it. Is there a way I can send you a photo?
I’d love to see it! You can send it to email@example.com
Thank you for the pattern. Heading out to select my yarn. Super cute!
Thank you for creating this pattern. It was very easy to follow, and the person I made it for was just thrilled.
Darling pattern – thank you so much for it.
I absolutely love this pattern! I’m having some trouble with the arms, however. I can’t seem to get them to fit well into the jacket. It looks to me like the arms are sewn on the body vertically but the arm holes in the jacket are horizontal. Am I missing something?
Once you sew on the arms to the jacket they should end up pretty round – I never had trouble getting it on with arms sewn on horizontal or vertical.
If your arms were stuffed more, you could go back and crochet the top of the jacket looser, or just pull harder to get the jacket on. Once it’s on you should be all set!
Thank you so much!!
I just completed this little doll and the only problem I had was trying to stand him up with his coat a little longer. Maybe a dolls stand would work.
I actually had pretty good luck standing mine on his own, with the coat adding balance and a wider base for the legs.
Thank you for thus pattern! You are amazing and incredibly patient. My daughter is obsessed with Baby Yoda. I can’t wait to suprise her with one. Thanks again.
Love this pattern! After making one for my hubby, my kids all wanted one, so now I’m on my fourth. Thanks for sharing this!
Thanks for this adorable pattern! I’m so enjoying making my first amigurumi!
Quick question…on the legs so we continue to sc on the back loop after row 3 or do we go back to regular sc?
Back to regular Sc. The back loop only is just to help it turn from the flat part of the foot to the upright part of the leg.
Thank you so much for sharing out this pattern! I am almost done with my first! Love him!!!!!
Thank you for the pattern. This is very cute. Just as a suggestion, I added a glass gem in the bottom of each foot. This gave it a little weight and it stands much better. The pattern was easy to follow and breeze to work up.
Please someone make a youtube video of this pattern. Brand new at crocheting learning just for this. I don’t necessarily know how to read the pattern and only know a few basics. Please please.
I’m pretty sure nobody is going to do that, I’m not at least. If someone wants to, they should reach out to me.
The nice thing about patterns online is they will always be here when you’re at a skill level to be ready for them.
You are so awesome for sharing this pattern! Thank you! I love baby yoda and you adding cheeks made it perfect!! Still working on him, as I’ve never made an Amigurumi before. I will definitely email you my finished work 🙂
Thank you so much for this free pattern! I had so much fun making it. Your instructions were very clear and easy to follow, especially for an amigurumi newbie like me. It ended up being a stash-buster project, which was very satisfying. The only materials I needed to purchase were the eyes!
I used sage-green Lily’s sugar and cream cotton yarn for the doll itself. For the cowl, I used cream-colored merino worsted weight. For the robe, I used camel-colored baby alpaca yarn. I stuffed the doll with soft raw wool that I knew would never be spun into yarn.
I did change a few things. I made a different set of ears, but used a pink highlighter as you suggested for the inside. I also added three toes on each foot, so the doll has better balance to stand on his own. I also stitched on some eyelids to make his eyes a bit more almond shaped.
I ended up gifting my doll to my 34-year-old son for Christmas, inside a new hardshell guitar case—so when he opened the case, The Child was perched on the neck support inside. He LOVED this surprise and so did his kids. My grandchildren play with Baby Yoda, and react to his cuteness not unlike the little kids in The Mandalorian 4th episode!
I also emailed you with a photo of my doll. Thank you again for this delightful free pattern!
Omg he looks adorable…just caught the crochet bug so still a newbie..hope I can do him justice lol
Thank you so much for this free pattern. He is adorable! I used your first idea and crocheted the legs right onto the body. The less I have to attach, the better. I am glad you left those instructions on the pattern. I just used stash yarn left over from other projects. I love to do that. I could not find 16mm eyes so I used 15mm and they looked just fine. I guess I am a tight crocheter because the jacket was a little sung and I had to pull it tight to get it on him. It worked out well because I think it gave him more support to stand. I did put a smile on him as well. I will email you a photo as well. Thanks again!!!
Hello! I just wanted to tell you that I came across this pattern and decided to try it out. I thought your pattern was well written, detailed, user friendly and very easy to follow. The pictures and explanations were also incredibly helpful. Somehow, my little guy ended up a bit bigger than I think he was supposed to, but it still turned out great and I gave it to my 10 year old son for Christmas. I was a little nervous to give it to him at first because I thought maybe he’d be too cool for homemade stuffed toys from mom, but it turned out to be his favorite gift and he sleeps with it every night! (My boyfriend also thought it was adorable and made me promise to make him one for his birthday 😂) I think of all the patterns I’ve seen online, yours is definitely the cutest! Thanks for all of that work you did and for my son’s new favorite snuggle buddy! 💖
I love to hear that! Thank you!
I agree! I bought two patterns from Etsy but ended up making this one
Hi, thank you so much for sharing your pattern. What was the reason behind making the legs separately? I found it easier to make it according to your original pattern since I had a tough time seeing the legs to the body. May be I’m doing something wrong?
I changed it to make the pattern easier for crocheters who are more at a beginner level. I got feedback that it was confusing.
The original pattern definitely still works, and I switch off between it and the separate legs just to cut down on assembly time.
Hi I couldnt understand about round ten for head
Plzzzzzzzz Explain for me
“ Rnd 10: (top of cheeks) sc into next 11 stitches, (sc, hdc) into next stitch, (2dc into next stitch) twice, (hdc, sc) into next stitch, sc into next 6 stitches,
(sc, hdc) into next stitch, (2dc into next stitch) twice, (hdc, sc) into next stitch, Sc into next 11 stitches (44 st)”
What exactly don’t you understand? I’m unclear. You just do all those stitches in the quantity and order they’re listed.
If I may be of some help, if not I apologize in advance… so, single crochet in next 11 stitches, then in the following stitch you do a single crochet followed by a half double crochet (both in same stitch). I believe this is the confusion?
Thx alot 😘♥️
I feel like I’m the only one not getting how to make the fingers 🙁 I love the pattern and you have been beyond amazing answering everyone’s questions and helping. Thank you so much!!
Wanted to let you know I figured out the fingers. Yay!! They may not be perfect, but they work 🙂
Thank you again!!
Thank you for creating this easy pattern. I’ve made 2 Baby Yoda’s so far and gave them both away. They are priceless . It only took me 3 Christmas movies to complete one.
Thanks for the patterns I made this little one took a while but finally got it figures out .
Just started this pattern, can’t wait to see it finished, will post pic when done
Hi there! I’m somehow confused. If you can or anyone help me, I thank you. Round 11 it says dc2tog twice. Does this mean I do it once more in the same st or following st or is it just the one time? So far that round has me going crazy. Thanks for your time and tutorial!
You dc2tog the next two stitches, then dc2tog the two stitches after that. Basically the row before you made 2dc into a stitch and then 2dc in the next one. Now you’re dc2tog those stitches. It’s to make the bottom of the cheeks so they’ll bulge out.
Hi! Thank you so much for your quick reply!! I’m working on it right now, so going to do what you said!!! Will be back hopefully when all done. Thank you again for such a cute pattern. I believe everyone(who loves Star Wars) in in so much love with this child!!
Hi! First I just want to thank you for sharing the pattern and answer our questions! I’ve been watching tutorials on the stitches but just got a probably beginner doubt: in row 10 when we make a dc and a hdc do we have to make those 2 initial stitches to give it some height, or just make the stitch normally? (I’m talking about when people make two sc stitches in the beggining of a row and then start the dc)
No chains to give it height. The Sc and hdc in the stitches before and after help smooth the transition to the dc height. Just do the stitches normally 🙂
I printed this pattern out a while ago and didn’t realize you had updated the jacket. I had to make a few modifications to make the sleeves come out right. The update is much clearer. Thank you for the pattern!
Just finished! I tagged you in Instagram and sent a DM 🙂
Thanks for this pattern. One day, my sister (who is over 50) texts me with several crocheted baby yoda photos and begs me to make one for her. At that time, I only did blankets and had NOT seen Mandalorian at that time. (Finally did watch) So I bought a small Star Wars Crochet kit to see if I could do an amigurumi. Being successful, I found your wonderful pattern and made her one.
I just gave it to her yesterday. And has it sitting in her medical office that she manages. I was informed today that another employee asked through her if I could make her one. I guess I better get busy.
Thanks again : )
Your welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
My sister found your pattern and asked me to make it for her. Such a cute pattern, thank you so much!
Thank you for sharing your creation of this pattern, started working on my first Yoda this afternoon. I’m at round 10 and ending up with 48, not 44 stitches and can’t figure where I’m going wrong.
starting with 36 stitches
Rnd 10: (top of cheeks) sc into next 11 stitches, 1-11
(sc, hdc) into next stitch, 12,13 (2dc into next stitch) 14,15 twice, 16-19 for second set
(hdc, sc) into next stitch 20 21, sc into next 6 stitches, 22-27
(sc, hdc) into next stitch, 28,29 (2dc into next stitch) 30,31 twice, 32-35 for second set
(hdc, sc) into next stitch, 36,37 Sc into next 11 stitches (44 st) 37 + 11 = 48
I’m going to continue to see how it turns out but would appreciate your feedback.
Thank you very much
Please ignore my previous comment – just read the pattern again for about the 10th time and realized where I am going wrong – only the 2dc are to be done twice, not the sc,hdc.
Glad you found it! I should probably take out that twice and just write it out two times, I’ve gotten a few comments on it being confusing.
Awesome post! Keep up the great work! 🙂
Thank you for the pattern. I don’t crochet yet but want to learn. I’ve been knitting & loom knitting for years. My grandson want one of these so my quest to learn crochet has begun! Hopefully I’ll learn soon so I can make one for him.
Thank You for sharing your pattern!!
He is so cute and my grandson is going to love it! BUT….. how do I keep the ears from curling?!?! I have them sewn on and don’t want to remove them! Any suggestions?!?!
There are a bunch of options! You could crochet an insert in pink or green and sew it on the front of the current ears to make them thicker. Or you could starch them. Or you can try to run a small wire through the top of the ears to help keep it stiffer (but might not be great if you’re giving it to a kid).
If you’re willing to take it off and reattach, you could make an identical pair and sew them together so the overall ears are twice as thick, or when crocheting around the edges put down a wire or pipe cleaner and crochet around/over it.
Sounds good! Thank you!
I have cross-stitched with thinner light brown yarn over the inside of the ears – leaving out the sc edging rather than colouring it with a pen. This has also had the effect of stiffening up the ears so they don’t curl.
Love this pattern. Making it for my 21 year old son! I’ve adapted it a little, I’ve sewn on a ring of chain around the eyes and a chain for the mouth, embroidered a ridge for the eyebrows and cross stitched light brown inside the ears.
I’ll post a picture when done.
The finger instructions had my whole crochet circle confused (10 ladies)
ch 2, then sl st into 2nd chain from the hook did not work and left us with 3 sts left over
So I just made something up. Then I came across the coat which was similar and had a picture to show a clear loop instead of an sc half way round the chain, which is what I’d done.
ch 7, sc in 4th st from hook in most cases would mean chain 7 and then sc in the 4th chain from the hook. After all the hook is at the end of the chain. This is often used when turning with straight crocheting and using a chain and turn to create the first dc of the row with an increase at the start of the row. I feel ‘skip 3 sts’ might have been a little better.
That’s a fair point, I’ve incorporated some of your comments with an alternate finger pattern and saying 4th Sc from hook instead of 4th st from hook.
Do you have a pattern for the hooded jacket? I couldn’t see it in the pattern.
No, it’s just a large collar.
Do you have a child carrier pattern for him?
I have been looking at this Baby Yoda pattern and had to make one and here it is. I feel I done a good job seeing the only other one I made was a Mr. Peanut and a Bird. Thank you for Sharing, do you have a Darth Vader pattern?
Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if
it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Are you still having trouble? It’s fine on both my phones.
Cute doll. Added a tan collar to provide support for his head. Chain 25, ch 1, turn, sc across, ch 1, turn, sc across, fasten off.
Thank you for creating this pattern.
Question: Before sl st the body do you add stuffing into the body and then add the legs?
Also having so much fun making it!
When you finish the body and do the sl st then cut a long tail for sewing, and do the same with the legs, you can stuff the body about halfway (and the legs), sew most of the way around, then finish stuffing it. It can be difficult to sew them together fully stuffed and the stuffing will get in the way. (Is that what you were asking?)
Thank you for the free pattern and the answers to so many of the questions I had.. can’t wait to get started… again… (they say 3rd time is the charm.. we shall see… LOL) and complete this little guy… ♥
I want to thank u very much for sharing this pattern,my daughter came across it and wanted me to build one for her,of course she shows and brags about what I’m gonna do for her and now I have 6 baby yodas done,three more to go,made my kids and grandkids one,and they love them.i made the,robes and accessories in different styles to match my family’s likes,they are very fun to make.thank u again
I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed it!
Just finish this pattern and it turned out super cute! Wish I could post a pic of it.
I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Well I just had so much fun making this. The instructions were clear and it turned out great. Thank you so much!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
Some process photos of the arms and hands would have been super helpful. I’m doing something, but not at all sure what, and I’m trying to trust the process but it makes so little sense that I’ve started over 5 times and am finally just doing what doesn’t makes sense and keeping my fingers crossed. I’d also like to have seen what the arms looked like before you sewed them to the body, and a close up of where they attach. Sorry for being needy. I do love that you put this pattern out there for people to enjoy!
I’ll take some photos the next time I make some arms.
I taught myself to crochet stuffed animals this year expressly for the purpose of making myself The Child. My little guy turned out amazing. Thank you so much.
My family did make the error of throwing The Child into the washer with my daughter’s stuffed animals. The Child now has an extremely elongated neck….so I’ll have to make another with explicit instructions to only wash it in a garment bag next time! Meanwhile I will try to shorten up the original’s neck somehow.
Great pattern! The cheeks are a cute touch. I added some brow bones, but otherwise I mostly stuck to your design. Thank you!
I have crocheted for years, and done a lot of projects I am proud of, however this little guy is the cutest thing I have made! Thank you for an adorable pattern, that is easy to follow. I have made three of these now, the first one was so loved by my oldest son that my younger one wanted one, and so did their friend. Great work, and thanks so much for sharing!
Have you done a tutorial for this pattern, I’m a beginner and find it easier to follow a video tutorial. Many thanks 😊
Hi! I have not, but overall it’s a pretty straightforward if you’ve done stuffed animals before. If you have questions on anything, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to answer them.
How do I start if I don’t want to use the magic circle?
I highly recommend the magic circle! It will make your doll look great, and is an easy technique once you get the hang of it. But you can also ch 2, sc9 into 2nd ch from hook. Or ch 4 and sl st into first stitch to make a circle, then sc 9 into the circle.
I love this Baby Yoda. I am making it right now and I love it! Thanks for the pattern! : )
Thanks so much for posting this pattern for free! I just finished my first one and it turned out fantastic! I added brows and a mouth and it turned out really well. Now I’ll be making more for Christmas gifts.
Seriously, I know this pattern took a lot of work, so it’s so very kind and generous of you to make it available for free. Thank you!
The left ear, is it actually wrong side facing to sew on head (to match the shape of the right ear)? Looks like in pic?
Each ear should end up with the stitches around the outside positioned right side facing forward. That’s why there’s two patterns instead of just making the same one twice and flipping it, so they match visually. Is that what you were asking, or did I misunderstand?
Hey, I am working to start a local business, you said to not sell the dolls on Etsy or another online resoirce. But I wanted to ask if it was ok to give the dolls as gifts (and/or) sell them to my teachers at school.
I’m definitely happy for them to be given as gifts. I’m okay with you selling them locally, but I strongly prefer you don’t list them online anywhere.
Hi! I was wondering if you knew why my head part would be coming out very oval-shaped vertically?
It might be how tightly you’re pulling your stitches or how you’re stuffing it. Send me photos at email@example.com and I’ll help you troubleshoot!
Hi, i made a baby yoda for Christmas, i love your pattern, easy to follow, i chose to make the head more oval (skip round 9) and i used the instructions for hand fingers to make him Toes on his feet. I used Happy Chenille from DMC to make it, and it turned great, you shared pictures on my instagram “www.instagram.com/stephanieavon27/”
