Stormtrooper Amigurumi

My husband absolutely love Star Wars, I love crochet; put them together and what do you get? Star Wars amigurumi!

I recently bought a Star Wars crochet boxed set (by Lucy Collin), with 12 amigurumi patterns for:

  1. Stormtrooper
  2. Darth Vader
  3. Luke Skywalker
  4. Yoda
  5. Princess Leia
  6. Han Solo
  7. Chewbacca
  8. Wicket the Ewok
  9. R2-D2
  10. C-3PO
  11. Boba Fett
  12. Jabba the Hutt

The set includes everything needed to make a Yoda and a Stormtrooper. Here's the Stormtrooper I made.

  1. White yarn
  2. Black yarn
  3. 3.5 mm hook
  4. Tapestry needle
  5. Stuffing
  6. A pair of eye beads
Stiches used:
  • single crochet (sc)
  • 2-dc bobble stitch (2dc bob)
  • 3-dc bobble stitch (3dc bob)
  • sc2tog
I won't go into detail on the pattern, but I'll clue you in on what special stitches were used on which part.

For the sides of the helmet, 2dc bob was used.

For the belt, a row of alternating 2dc bob and sc.

For the feet, 3dc bob on the front side only.

Stay tuned for Yoda!

Scarf for the Little Boy

My one year old son likes to put strings on his neck, I think he's trying to mimic his older brother when he has his school ID on. So I decided to make him a scarf. I can't post a picture of him wearing it though, he refuses to keep still when he's "wearing" the scarf.

Simple crocheted scarf for boys (or men).

The pattern is really simple.


  1. Yarn (2 colors) - I used a mercerized cotton yarn
  2. Hook - I used a 4.5 mm crochet hook because I want my stitches bigger
Stitch used: half-double crochet

Yarn embellishments: fringe knots

Row 1 - Using color A, make a base chain row. I made at least 200 chains. Adjust your count depending on what type of yarn you will use and how long you want the scarf. Just remember to add 2 ch at the end. Turn.

Row 2 - On the third chain from the hook, make an hdc. Continue hdc on each ch until the end. Turn.

Row 3 - Ch 2. Hdc until the end. Turn.

Rows 4-6 - Repeat row 3. If you want a wider color A, make more rows.

Rows 7-8 - Repeat row 3, but using color B. Again, if you want it wider, just make more rows.

Rows 9-10 - Repeat row 3 using color A.

Rows 11-12 - Repeat row 3 using color B.

Rows 13-17 - Repeat row 3 using color A. Fasten off.

Add fridge knots of the same yarn color at the end each row.

Voila, you have a scarf!
