Space Pod for Yoda Amigurumi!

Baby Yoda Amigurumi wouldn’t be complete without his Space Pod!

Baby Yoda Amigurumi in Space Pod

So recently I got a really good response when I posted a photo of my Baby Yoda Amigurumi in his crochet Space Pod cradle and some of you expressed interest in the crochet pattern, so here it is!

I tried to keep the Space Pod simple but with enough details. It’s a bit similar to my Pokeball Pod pattern in that it’s meant to hold your amigurumi and give it a cute home! Immediately when I saw the floating pod, it reminded me of a sleek modern spaceship!

Construction wise, the bottom of the cradle Space Pod is designed as a double layer. I find that doubling up the fabric (especially when there’s no stuffing involved) helps with keeping the integrity of the shape so that it doesn’t collapse on itself and can survive more rigorous handling. The Pod Hood however is just one layer.

So now Baby Yoda Amigurumi is free to cruise and float along in his sleek Space Pod Cradle with this free crochet pattern. Its design includes a minimalist gray palette and a hood that arches halfway over the main cradle. It also has circle details on its side with a half circle in red felt. The front on the cradle has a console with 3 square pads created out of felt.

Here is Baby Yoda enjoying his Pod. It’s his favorite mode of transportation!

It also functions as his cradle, and he can sleep snugly, safe and warm.

He can also sip soup, watching any drama play out, in the comfort of his pod.

    I made baby Yoda using your pattern and it was super easy and he’s adorable. I’m trying to make the space pod to go with him, but I’m lost with round 1. I don’t understand what you mean by go across, then across again on the other side. Or how you ended up with 16 sc, as I end with 18. Thank you.

      Hi Vanessa! So when you ch 9, you skip the first ch and do sc across the chain and you should get 8 single crochet across. Then you can pretend you’re in a round and continue onto the other side of the chain, and this one you should also get 8 single crochet stitches across. So at the end you should have a total of 16 single crochet stitches around the long oval. You can take a look at the photo tutorial below, but if it’s not clear I’m also planning to come out with a video tutorial very soon so I hope that will clear things up!

    How can I make the space pod bigger to fit a 10 inch baby yoda amigurumi?

      Hi to make a bigger pod, I would try using either chunkier yarn, or you can even try double stranding or triple stranding your yarn to work with to create a thicker strand for yourself. That would be the easiest way to go about increasing a pattern. Or another way is to increase the bottom oval until you get to the size you need. As a quick measurement, you can probably lay your Baby Yoda on top of the flat oval to see if he’ll fit, and then I might even make sure it has some margins around because we will be doubling up on the fabric. Then once you get the size you need on the flat oval, you can stay at that same number of stitches to make the pod go upward, and keep going until you get to the height you need for your Space Pod. Then sc in the backloop only, and then in the next rounds just keep going until the fabric that will double down back into the space pod matches the same height that you need. Hope that can get you some ideas to help!

      It’s written in American English standard crochet terms. If you find it too small, then I would try loosening up the tension or using a larger hook, or even a thicker yarn. Best of luck!
