Nothing says Christmas to me like sitting down in front of a glowing TV and watching Robot Santa terrorize New New York. Christmas is about bringing people together, not blowing them apart! Hahaha I just love the Christmas Futurama episodes!

     



So, in honor of my Futurama love I crocheted my own Robot Santa who sits (aka, tied forcibly with lights) atop my Christmas tree. To see more pictures, including him on my tree please visit my blog:

I also have a list of the "extras" I added to make him truly Robot Santa. Here's the free pattern, and as always email me if you have any questions or problems! My patterns are untested, but hey, they're free! MostlyNerdyCrochet@gmail.com
