My husband is a Star Wars fan and loves the bounty hunters. I decided to start making some additional crochet characters for him, in the same style as Lucy Collins. I used her patterns to model my characters and changed up the color schemes.
I started with Bossk. I found pictures of him online and of his action figure. I used one of the regular sized characters from Star Wars crochet as my model, probably Han Solo. For his head ridges, I added picots along his head. I originally did his teeth in V shapes, but didn’t like them, so I replaced the teeth with just small stitches. I thought it made his teeth look more jagged and razor sharp. Overall I think he came out pretty good. Bossk was a Valentine’s Day gift for my husband.
Next up I tried Dengar. Again, I searched for pictures online to use to model him off of. For his head wrap, I started with a hood and made a hat. Then I made a long tail coming off the end of the hood, that I wrapped around his head. He’s pretty cute. He was a birthday present for my husband.
My latest bounty hunter was IG-88. For IG-88, I used C3P0’s pattern as a template to work from. He has really thin arms and legs, so I tried to reduce his leg and arm width and extend them, since he is tall. I also extended his head to a point. When I finished he turned out to be almost twice as tall as Boba Fett. Oops. Oh well, I still like the way he turned out. He was a Christmas present for my husband.
So I have three more to make for him: 4-LOM, Zuckuss, and Boba Fett. I already made Boba Fett from the Star Wars Crochet kit, but he’s mine. I’ll have to make a new one for my husband. I think I may try 4-LOM next. Need to figure out how I will make his bug eyes.
