It’s the 4th of may and you know what that means. Star Wars fans all around the world are uniting to share the six most important words that will be uttered today, “May the 4th be with you”.
I had to jump onto the bandwagon and whip up something Star Wars inspired to share with my fellow Yoda AND crochet enthusiasts. Below you will find a free crochet pattern for a newborn sized Yoda inspired hat and an infant/toddler sized light saber inspired toy. You can alter the pattern for the hat by adding more increase rows and rows of length to fit a larger head. Both of these patterns work up easy and fairly quick, and the finished products would make a great addition to any Star Wars inspired photo shoot. You could even whip these up as a gift for that upcoming baby shower (if the mom-to-be is a fan, of course).
I hope you enjoy following these patterns. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Drop me a comment below to let me know if you’d like any future Star Wars inspired patterns to be shared on my blog.
