This is an original crochet pattern of my design to make your own miniature Darth Vader. He is only 4" tall, but as a Dark Lord of the Sith he is still quite menacing. Make him to play with or to sit on your desk, he's just the right size.
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.
The pattern is a downloadable PDF file, along with two extra PDFs with general instructions for Star Wars patterns, and you will need Adobe Reader to open them. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making your Darth Vader.
