Chewbacca Amigurumi - Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Mar 23

Hello, hi and welcome back! I'm excited to share my crochet pattern for this adorable little Chewbacca amigurumi! He is the cutest Star Wars marathon companion and a quick crochet project! He is the perfect friend for my Baby Yoda Amigurumi and the perfect gift for the Star Wars fan in your life!



This Chewbacca crochet pattern is comprised of the body, arms, and head which are stuffed and stitched together using a tapestry needle. His hair is created by brushing the yarn out and his bag is crocheted separately. The finished amigurumi measures approximately 8" tall. You could easily increase the yarn weight and hook size to make a larger Chewie.

Face:

  • Attach the safety eyes.

  • Using dark brown yarn and a tapestry needle, stitch a little nose between the eyes (I went over the nose several times to get the desired thickness).

After the face is complete, add stuffing to the head and use the long tail to attach the head to the torso.


Tie off and weave in any loose ends; trim any excess yarn.



Bag:

With dark brown

Chain 6

Rows 1-8: SC in each (5 stitches)

Chain 1, tie off with a short tail and pull through the chain to secure.

  • Fold the work in half, creating a bag shape.

  • Join to what would be the bottom right corner of the bag.

  • Slip stitch from the bottom to the top of the right side through both sides of the bag to connect.



  • Without tying off, chain 20 (this will be the strap; make sure it is not twisted)

  • Without tying off, slip stitch down the left side of the bag from top to bottom, joining the other side of the bag

  • Chain 1, turn

  • SC down the side we've just finished, across the chain stitches and down the other side.

  • Slip stitch, chain 1, tie off pulling through the chain stitch to secure.

With cream yarn

Using a tapestry needle, stitch 'vertical dashes' onto the strap of the bag.



Hair:

This step is optional, but is so much fun and adds character! This was my first adventure creating amigurumi hair, so I started on the backside to get the feel for the right brush strokes.

  • Leaving his bag off, brush vigorously in the direction you want the hair to fall (It was definitely a Goldilocks situation for how hard to brush...not too hard...not too soft...but juuuust right!)

  • Make sure to cover the eyes and nose so you don't brush them out! I just used my finger to cover them up.

Once you're happy with his hair, place the bag over his shoulder!



I hope you have enjoyed crocheting Chewbacca with me!
