Crochet Buzz Lightyear


Find here a cute pattern for an inspired Buzz Lightyear doll!

As Christmas and his birthday are 6 months away, I decided to make him a crochet buzz lightyear! He absolutely loves it and has asked for a crochet woody!

    Hi Natalina. I made buzz for my great grandson who like your little boy loves Buzz. Thank you for the pattern. I did find the arm pattern wasn’t the same as the pictures I made the wings smaller so they wouldn’t flop. Best wishes

    1. Thank you Barbara. I am so sorry for this mistake, I just updated the pattern. Making smaller wings is definitely a great idea! Best wishes.

  2. Teresa Rastoskey

    Nadalina, thank you for the adorable pattern. I too made it for a great grandson. I used the hint of a pipe cleaner to stiffen the wings. I actually used a purple chenille stick. The piece I cut off from the wings I used in the seam that joined the wings. The pattern is easy to follow. I don’t usually make dolls or animals so the well written pattern was welcome. Thanks for sharing your hard work and talent.

    thank you for the adorable pattern. I too made it for a grandson. The pattern is easy to fallow.Thank you for sharing your work.

  4. I would like to make this for my grandson but they don’t give me the option to print out the instructions. They don’t give you the option to save it .

  5. Thank you very much for sharing your pattern. I am not an accomplished crochet crafter but followed your pattern quite easily and enjoyed the process. My Buzz does have a few wonky bits but he will be loved regardless!

    Thanks again & kind regards

    Julia
