Star Wars Crochet Cozy Series – Part 12 – Wampa

A Little More Simple

Hi crafters! I needed to make a more simple crochet pattern this week. It helps to de-stress if I can stick with something easier for a little bit. So this week I give you the Star Wars creature: the Wampa!

It’s a very minimalist design, just the horns and the fuzzy body (that’s my favorite part). I remember watching The Empire Strikes Back with my big brother. I can’t definitely say that I remember the first time seeing this film, but I definitely remember seeing the Wampa the first time, and every time after that. Although, I suppose it’ll be ore accurate to say that remember the Wampa roar, a blur of the hairy body coming towards Luke, and then closing my eyes and hearing the rest. Lol! At least it didn’t scare me as badly as the Rancor.

Let’s jump right into it!

Attaching the Pieces

Using your stitch makers, attach the horns, with the narrow end pointing towards the front, to the cozy. With 1 1/2 yards of taupe yarn attach the horns to the main cozy.
