I knit this with a pattern from the Jess Hutch booklet: "http://www.jesshutch.com/booklet.html"

  I used left over Rowan Kid Classic and size five needles.  I'm a graduate student doing work with social robotics, so I thought that this guy was just the thing I needed hanging out in my office.

Pictures of him having an adventure with my cat are here:

That's great!!  I also bought the book....and need only to buy some eyes to complete my robot.   Did you use size 5 or 5mm?   I used the recommended size 8 needles...and he's really too loose.   One day...i'm going to start gauging before i start.....

That's awesome! And what a great way to use up leftover yarn. You did a great job, it's so cute!  Cheesy

I want that book rilly, rilly bad.

waistfire - I used size five needles, since I was using a different yarn.  I chose my needle size based on something I thought would give me a nice, firm fabric, and didn't really care about the size of the finished toy.  I think my robot is smaller than the ones she made, but I like him that way.

That's great, and I love your photo essay. I just learned about this book about an hour ago, reading the Fig & Plum blog (not getting much work done today) and I will be ordering it soon. My boyfriend would LOVE a knitted robot, I just know it!

I made one of these too! Rather than start a whole new thread I figured I'd post him here for all to see



He's fun to knit, despite a few frustrations I had to work my way through! I'm using him for a children's picture book I'm making for a spanish course (yup, elementary spanish...here's to wishing I had taken more spanish courses through school!)  and then, I don't know, I guess he'll just hang around the apartment!

Both of those robots are too adorable. Great job, the both of you.

Oh, I totally forgot to write about how much I love your robot pinkhairedcyn. You were smart enough to figure out how to put on the arms! I just sewed mine on after I finished everything, so the attachment isn't that smooth. I really like the way yours came out!

I just got my booklet on saturday and I'm dying to make squarey! I think he'll have to wait until after xmas when I have more time...or at least until after the 500 swaps I'm in at the moment. It's a really nice booklet!

I didn't get mine until the second run. The way to ensure you get one is to email her and she'll send out an email letting you know when the next printing is. I ordered the day she told me they were going to be back in stock!
