Free Amigurumi Star Wars Porg
The breakout star from the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, for me anyway, was the Porg. Everyone saw them in the previews and was like "awww! Porgs!" But when Chewbacca was sitting there roasting a Porg over an open fire and that little Porg stood there pleading with him not to take a bite, how could you not fall in love with them?! So cute.
There are lots of super cute Porg patterns with lots of realistic detail and you should definitely buy those patterns because they're amazing. If you want a quick Porg fix and you're kind of a new crocheter, I've written an easy tutorial that's based on my popular "Baby Monsters Amigurumi". Add some color changes, duck feet, and wings, and you've got yourself a Porg.
