So Before Xmas, before I even started making the crochetted Pylon I recently put up.  I started on making a Dalek for my friend.  He is a massive dr who fan, his collection is extensive, in that he has a room dedicated to all the dr Who stuff he has, so I wanted to get him something I knew he probably wouldn't have.

So Voila!  one crochetted Dalek





You know the silliest part, that even though it took me over a month and a bit of various trial and error, making up random stitches I have no idea whether they officially exist or not, and swearing a fair bit.  The part that I am most proud of is the teeny bit of light blue at the end of the sticky out bit or..whatever those bits of daleks are called.

I hope people like it.  I am going to try and write the pattern down, although thats gonna be...interesting due to the weird random things I did.  Like The grey grill looking bit I crochetted directly over the top of the black and, i'm not entirely sure how I would go about decribing that in a pattern. I'll give it a shot anyway.

The dalek is much redder in real life and stands about 25cm high

That is *so* awesome. Wisted.

And now, I'm going to have to try and figure out how to crochet again.

Thanks everyone.  Im glad some people like it.  I'm giving it to my friend today so i'm really sort of eagerly looking forward to seeing his face.  The guy in question has really changed my life for the better and I wanted to make him something super special.

Thanks julianna for filling in my missing dalek knowledge, and hippierulez, I would love to see your friend's crochetted dalek at some point.  I've seen knitted ones around but never crochetted ones.

holy snaps! You are one brave soul and the result is rather awesome because of it! The Dalek looks flawless! I'd cuddle him if I knew he wouldn't try to "exterminate" me. Cheesy
