Stormtrooper Doll (Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern)

by - August 24, 2020


Dear fellow amigurumi enthusiasts,

I'm super excited to share with you my latest design, the Stormtrooper Inspired Doll!  He's my cute, pocket-sized yarn version of the iconic Star Wars character.  I'd say he is more adorable than menacing as a tiny, little amigurumi though!  


This pattern is quick and easy to crochet and makes a great toy gift for kids and children alike.  This versatile pattern can also serve as a male or female human body base to crochet into other custom characters.

I also made an Anakin Skywalker that goes along with this Stormtrooper doll.  If you'd like to make this duo, check out his pattern page too!

    1. Hi dear, you are so sweet! Thank you for being such a friend and looking out for me! <3 That's a really helpful tip and I'll look into it. I'm actually not sure if text can still be stolen with the right click, since I have highlighting disabled...do you happen to know if there's a way to go around it? For my photos, I feel a little better about those because I have them tagged with my blog name, so hopefully it detracts people from taking them. ^_^;
