Baby Yoda Crochet Pattern

Baby Yoda Crochet Pattern – 10 FREE Patterns (PDF downloads)

The world has gone crazy for the Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian.

This role first appeared in “The Mandalorian Chapter 1″. The character was designed by Christian Alzmann. The Child has been referred to widely and affectionately in news reports and social media as “Baby Yoda.”

According to an article from Vanity Fair, fans were desperate for “Baby Yoda” merchandise, although Favreau had wished to hold off on it in case the Child had been leaked before the release of the first episode.

There are no Baby Yoda original toys yet.

Now fans are beating down the door for Baby Yoda toys and merch, and furious to find there’s not very much. At least right now.

For now, the main item available is a T-shirt featuring the concept art of the lovable creature. Toymaker Hasbro confirmed to Vanity Fair that, unfortunately, it would not have any Baby Yoda toys available until 2020, so it will not be in stores in time for the upcoming holidays.

Over on Etsy, handmade creators are already capitalizing on the craze. There you can find page after page of crocheted Baby Yodas, felt Baby Yoda dolls, Baby Yoda holiday ornaments, Baby Yoda sweatshirts, art prints, enamel pins, bumper stickers, coffee cups, shot glasses, and jewelry.

But did you know that individuals who wish to use the Disney characters should take care to make legal use of them to avoid violating Disney’s intellectual property rights?

Disney protects its characters with trademark and copyright registrations.

A trademark protects a brand name, while copyright protects an original work such as a movie or book. The owner of a trademark or copyright registration for a fictional character can prevent others from using the character without permission.

If you want to know more about The Walt Disney Studios Licensing, you can read here: https://www.disneystudiolicensing.com/.

It is okay if you make your own products for you and your family. It is when you start making profit off someone else’s copyright by selling unauthorized merch, that is when they step in.

Another good news is that Mickey Mouse will be public domain soon.

As of January 1, 2019, all copyrighted works published in 1923 fell into the public domain (with a few exceptions). Everyone now has the right to republish them or adapt them for use in new works.

It’s the first time this has happened in 21 years.

In 1998, works published in 1922 or earlier were in the public domain, with 1923 works scheduled to expire at the beginning of 1999. But then Congress passed the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act. It added 20 years to the terms of older works, keeping 1923 works locked up until 2019.

And assuming Congress doesn’t interfere, more works will fall into the public domain each January from now on.

On January 1, 2024, we’ll see the expiration of the copyright for Steamboat Willie—and with it Disney’s claim to the film’s star, Mickey Mouse. The copyrights to Superman, Batman, Disney’s Snow White, and early Looney Tunes characters will all fall into the public domain between 2031 and 2035.

The expiration of copyrights for characters like Mickey Mouse and Batman will raise tricky new legal questions. After 2024, Disney won’t have any copyright protection for Mickey’s original incarnation. But Disney will still own copyrights for later incarnations of the character—and it will also own Mickey-related trademarks.

So now, let’s get to the fun part: Here are the free patterns (click on the photo)!

  1. I’m also a fan of Yoda, Katja! Because he is very strong and wise but indeed small (same as me, tiny! Lol). By the way, I am very happy with the pattern that you offer for free. Ah! this will be an exciting holiday season. Nothing to do besides crocheting. Wonderful!

    Of the 10 that you showed, I am most pleased with the “Baby Yoda”, very adorable. And I will make two pcs, one I will try to hang in front of the door of the house and another one I will hang in my daughter’s bag. She will really like it!

    And another thing, do you also sell it? I think this is a unique product and will sell well in the market!

    1. Thank you. I am glad you like my gathering. I am sure your daughter will love it. 

      I do make and sell crochet creations, but not Baby Yoda or others that are protected by the copyright. I gave some of them away for free 😉 It is Christmas time, and some of my family members have birthdays now, so I made them gifts.

      Have a beautiful day, and enjoy crocheting.

  2. Hey Katja; Are all these baby Yoda Crochet Patterns a part of Disney properties? When it comes to the copyright laws, your post comes as an eye-opener to some areas of the laws. 

    I was not aware that there would be lifting or abolishing any copyright on any property because of their age or otherwise.

     When this law is enforced there will be a huge rush with some of the younger fans to these properties in a bid to makeover and refurbish as much as the possible can.

    1. Hi. Thank you for your comment. I was surprised too. I didn’t know Disney was the owner of Baby Yoda. It turns out, you can’t just make and sell everything you like. I was surprised because there are so many of these patterns and toys available, and it seems that everyone is violating the copyright. And I don’t mean just Baby Yoda; there are numerous cartoon and comic book characters. I wonder if they realize they are breaking the copyright.

      Have a nice day.

  3. Hi, those baby Yoda are adorable. That’s just what I needed to see. I have a very hard time believing that there is nobody selling these yet if there is demand.  Star wars is a hot seller and there are many hard core collectors.  Are you sure there is nobody selling these on Amazon?

    1. Hi. Thank you for your comment. I haven’t checked Amazon. I am sure a lot of people are selling Baby Yoda on Amazon also. I just wanted to say, that legally they can not sell either the patterns or the toys, that is why I am sharing free Baby Yoda patterns.

      But I understand, there is a demand right now, and you can earn a lot of money before they catch you. I believe that many of the sellers are not aware that they are doing something wrong, and I think they are very surprised when they get notified by Disney.

      Thank you for reading. Have a nice day.

  4. Thanks a lot for sharing this useful and really informative article, my wife is a very great love of crocheting and she’s always delighted to hear of new patterns to work on. 10 baby Yoda crochet pattern is a lot and the use of those pictures makes it really understandable.

    1. Thank you very much. Your wife can be so happy to have a husband like you 🙂

      Have a nice day.

  5. Wow! This is really nice to see here. Being a big fan of crotcheting and also Yoda, this could not be better than this. Seeing that the holiday is already peaking, I will like to gift something of this nature to my child here. Great one here and I love the various designs of it here. Thumbs up

    1. Thank you very much. I am so glad you like it and you find it useful. If you make something, you can share it with me on my Facebook (Best of Crochet Patterns or Pretty Things by Katja) and Instagram page(@pretty_things_by_katja). Just tag me into your post.

      Have a nice day.

  6. I have always been a very big fan of baby today and honestly I have always thought of the possibility of getting to see q pattern that’s very similar to that of the Yoda. First it’s a very good information you gave given all about Disney here because I didn’t know that in the past. Nice work here. I will give this a try.

    1. Thank you very much. I am glad you liked my post and you think my articles are interesting and informative.

      I am a little surprised at how many people don’t know about the violation of Disney’s intellectual property rights. I am happy to share, and maybe help some of the people with the information.

      Have a nice day.
