Is 2019 suddenly the year of Baby Yoda? What was life before this adorable green creature came into our lives? It’s okay if you haven’t watched “The Mandalorian” on Disney+ so far, because odds are you’ve already encountered a Baby Yoda meme. But instead of turning to the Internet to see this cute face, you can now create one all on your own—thanks to the power of crocheting (which has plenty of health benefits that you can reap, FYI).

The Etsy shop TheKnottyBook is selling a crochet pattern PDF that helps you make your own baby Yoda pal. In addition to the pattern, you’ll also receive a U.S. standard crochet terminology packet, a list of the materials and tools you’ll need, and reference pictures—all of which will hopefully result in a 4″ tall and 6″ wide masterpiece. An extra incentive: it’s only $5.99. But really, can you put a price on this cuteness, anyway?

A few things to keep in mind: according to the product description, you should have basic knowledge of making crochet amigurumi (a Japanese stuffed crochet toy). Also, just to reiterate, this purchase will grant you a PDF to create your own baby Yoda, but will not come as a finished product.

The product is fairly new, so not many reviews are available, but one raving comment (with a photo included) from Etsy shop ThimbleAndCork gives us hope: “Cutest little baby yoda ever! The pattern was very easy to follow, even for someone who is new to crochet. Loved this little project!”

Okay, enough reading, it’s time to get to your crocheting! And if you’d rather not pick up your hook, you can always just purchase the package for the reference photos and hang them up everywhere.
