Chewbacca is made in rounds from the top of the hea d down, with
arms made separately. (His bandolier and bag are co mpletely separate
and made in rows). Do not join rounds unless told t o, use a stitch
marker to mark the start of a round - a small piece of different
coloured yarn placed under the stitch at the start of the round will do.
To start a round, you can use the magic ring method , but I prefer
(ch2, work 6 sc into 1
st ch). If you work the 6 sc over the tail of yarn
as well you can use that to pull the hole tight.
To create his fur you will need a wire pet brush (slicker). If you use a
fluffy mohair type yarn this will fluff out the thr eads that get trapped
when you crochet, but it will also work on smooth w ool or acrylic yarn.
I would recommend that you crochet a test sample wi th the yarn you
are using and brush it to check that you like the e ffect. You need to
brush quite vigorously, in several directions, to g et the right furry
I have made a version of Chewbacca using smooth acr ylic yarn (on the
left) and an alpaca mix yarn (on the right) to show the different
Work through both loops of stitches unless otherwis e indicated.

Round 9 - 20: (12 rounds) Sc in each sc around - 24 sc.
Fit the eyes at this point. They should go between rounds 7 and 8
(with the start of the round placed at the back of Chewbacca), but the
yarn needs to be brushed before they are fitted, or you will scratch
them. Since you will not be able to see the rounds once the yarn is
brushed, mark the correct place with a bit of contr asting yarn, or use
your fingernails to feel the rounds afterwards. Bru sh away from the
face area and over the top of Chewbacca's head. Fit the eyes, then
stuff the head and use the black yarn to embroider a nose (4 lines of
yarn) and mouth (2 lines of yarn).

least 24” long.
Sew the hole at the base up neatly then brush the r est of the body a
little, but not so much that you can't see the roun ds. Pull the yarn out
at the middle front of Chewbacca, 7 rounds up from his feet. Pull the
yarn up tightly to make sure the base lies flat. To define the legs pass
the yarn through the body to the same position at t he middle back and
pull tightly. Pull the yarn back through to the fro nt, one round lower,
and again pull tightly. Continue to do this, workin g down the legs
round by round, until you reach the base of the fig ure. Take the yarn
through the base (not tightly) a couple of times to secure and then cut
it. Finish brushing Chewbacca so he is nice and fur ry, ending up by
brushing downwards. You may need to trim the fur on his feet.
