This is an original crochet pattern of my design to make your own miniature Chewbacca. At only 4.5" tall, he is a bit more manageable than a full-size Wookiee and will make a great toy or a guardian for your desk. He comes with instructions to make his bandolier and bag, so he is always fully dressed!
The pattern is fairly straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi. His furry look is achieved by brushing the yarn with a wire pet brush - the two different versions of Chewbacca shown in the photos shows the effect of brushing different types of yarn.
The pattern will be sent to you as a PDF file (you will need Adobe Reader to open it) within 24 hours in most cases. Let me know the email address you would like it sent to when you place your order. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making it.
