Baby Yoda Cup Cozy

Baby Yoda Cup Cozy (for 32 Oz Yeti Cup)

Size H Hook

1 Skein each: Vanna’s Choice: Fern, Barley, Chocolate

Darning needle

A small amount of fiberfill to stuff the arms.

2 black buttons or eyes. I used 9mm doll eyes and cut the screw back off, then glued them in place.

Loctite Glue (Vinyl, Plastic and Fabric) or thread and needle if you are using buttons for eyes.

 

BODY

Working from the bottom up.

Row 1: With FERN, Chain 34, Sc into the back loop of the 2nd stitch from the hook, and all the way across the row. 32 SC.

Slip stitch first and last SC together to form a ring ensuring it is not twisted. Tie off.

Change color to BARLEY.

Row 2-5: SC into each stitch from the previous row, when you reach the first stitch with the new color, mark the first stitch with a stitch marker, then SC into that stitch and keep stitching around for four rows. You are working in a spiral to avoid having a seam. Move your stitch marker up for each new row. Once you finish the fourth row (5 rows including your green row) you will begin an increase row.

Row 6: Increase Row: Two SC in the very first stitch, one SC in the next 7 stitches, Repeat from * to finish the row. (36)

Row 7-8: Continuing in the spiral fashion, 1 SC in each stitch around. After reaching the end of

Row 8, tie off.

Change color to FERN

Row 9-15: chain 1, 1 SC in each stitch working in the same spiral pattern marking your original stitches. When row 15 is complete, tie off.

 

 

EARS (make 2) FERN

 

Row 1: Magic Circle with a long tail, 4 SC into it. SS to the 1st SC (4)

Row 2: Chain 1, 2 SC into each of the previous 4 stitches, SS to the chain 1(8)

Row 3: Chain 1, 1 SC into each stitch around, SS to chain 1. (8)

Row 4: Chain 1, 2 SC into first stitch, 1 SC into next 3.  2 SC into next stitch, 1 SC into next 3 (10)

Row 5: Chain 1, 1 SC into each stitch, SS to the chain 1 (10)

Row 6: Chain 1, 2 SC into first stitch, 1 SC into the next 4 stitches, 2 SC into next stitch, 1 SC into the next 4. SS to the chain 1 (12)

Row 7-11: *Chain 1, 1 SC into each stitch all the way around, SS to the chain 1. Tie off, leaving a long string for sewing the ears on.

Now use your darning needle and the long tail left at the top of the ear from the original magic circle, to shape the ear. You’ll want to pinch it as shown below in the photo. Then stitch through the ear a couple of times to keep it cinched. Tie off and sew in ends.

ARMS (make 2)

Using FERN: Magic Circle, 4 SC into it. SS to the 1st SC (4)

Chain 1, 2 SC into each of the previous 4 stitches, SS to the chain 1(8)

Chain 1, 1 SC, 1 SC decrease in the next two stitches, 1 SC in the next 2 stitches, 1 SC decrease in the next two stitches, 1 SC in the last stitch, SS to the chain 1. (6)

 

Change to BARLEY yarn, 1 SC in each stitch around (6) instead of a SS, begin working in a spiral again as you did in the yoda body, do a total on 9 rows, tie off. Again leave a long tail for sewing the arms to the body later.

 

Stuff both arms with a bit of fiberfill.

 

BOWL

Using CHOCOLATE

Row 1: Magic Circle, 6 SC into it. SS to the first stitch. (6)

Row 2: Chain 1, 2 SC into each stitch of previous row (12)

Row 3-7: Chain 1, 1 SC into each stitch of previous row, SS to the chain 1. (12)

Fold down the top stitch to form a little rim on the bowl.

 

Additional Information:

I used just a drop of the glue on each hand to attach them to the bowl. Then used the long tail from each arm to close the arm hole and sew it to the body after the glue was dry and the hands were attached to the bowl. After both arms are attached, use the long tail from the ears to sew them on right above the arms. I used pink blush (makeup) to color the inside of the ears and sealed with a light spray of hairspray. (I heard this idea from another pattern for a full size baby yoda but I have no idea who to credit for it. Just saying…it wasn’t my original idea although the rest of this pattern is.

Last but not least attach the eyes. Be sure to line them up and make sure the spacing is right before permanently attaching them.

 

Enjoy your “Baby Yoda Yeti Cup Cozy! ❤️

Sleepy Little Llama Crochet Pattern

I had this skein of yarn laying around that I had bought last summer. It wasn’t expensive, but the color just looked so appealing to me, however; I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I kept looking at it wondering what it could be. (this may the reason why my yarn stash is so, well….let’s just call it “healthy”!)

Sometimes I can’t imagine yarn just becoming a hat or scarf or blanket, sometimes it’s as if I can hear it begging to be something ultimately “cooler” and preferably with a personality! Maybe the yarn just wants to know it will be hugged and or loved by someone (I mean, can you blame it afterall? Who doesn’t want to be hugged and loved from time to time?)

Crochet Messy Bun Hat Pattern

Recently, a friend posted a photo of a hat she really liked on social media “Who can make this hat?” She asked.  She had to have it!

Untitled

 

Another friend tagged me…so I set off to make the hat. I had scoured the internet and all of the reliable knitting and crochet pattern sites, there seemed to be a lack of patterns for this style hat (mind you this was when this style was just emerging, now there are 1000’s of patterns, many of which are just copy cats of each  other) online so I figured one was needed!

Here, I used the simple front and back post crochet stitch method to create the brim.  I created this pattern myself,  I have found so many awesome FREE patterns on the web over the years that it’s the LEAST I can do to give back a few!

For this hat, I used Lion Brand Ice Cream Crème Glacée. Color: Cookies and Cream. (I had this yarn laying around in my studio for awhile so I’m not sure if it’s still being sold. It’s a medium weight yarn a bit lighter than WW yarn, but I think you will do just as well with WW. I used a size G/6/4.25MM hook, but an H/8/5mm would work as well.

Stitches used will be: CH (chain), SC, DC, HDC, FPHDC, BPHDC, and SS (slip stitch). This pattern took about 2-3 hours to complete. (of course I crochet while binge watching Netflix so I might be a little slower than you!)

Row 19-22: Chain 2, 1 BPHDC, <<2 FPHDC, 2 BPHDC>> continue <<>> around the row, SS to the chain 2. (Make sure to line up your FPHDC and BPHDC with the previous row, as this is what provides the ribbed look that finishes the hat brim.)

Tie off and weave in the ends.


All done! Enjoy!
