That is a wonderful Gir and muffin. Did you create the pattern yourself?

Ah I wish I was cool enough to design my own patterns this well.. actually I used this robot pattern:

with Caron Perfect Match and Red Heart Super Saver on size 6 DPNS. I winged parts of the patterns (mostly the eyes) but followed the rest.

I've already had requests from my brother to knit one with a dog suit, but I have too many other weird things to knit for other birthdays (I'm so glad my friends love weird presents.. I get to knit a dinosaur and a chicken hat next! Grin)

Oh and trust me, everyone has room for one more robot and one more muffin Wink

That's wicked cute.  It seriously brightened up my very long evening of report card writing.  I heart muffins...

Gorgeous handiwork

That is the cutest, you did a great job!  Any chance you could share what you did to modify the cupcake.  Not sure I could change it from the original down to a robot sized treat. Cheesy

Mkay for the muffin...
I used Red Heart and size 6 DPNS. I cast on 40sts (versus the 80sts) then knit in ribbing for 1". Then with the bobbles I only made 3 extra sts (and ended up with 20 total bobbles) then knit the muffin top for roughly 1" before I started the decreases.
For the bottom I picked up I think 20 sts (basically one for every ribbing stripe), knit 1 row or 2 then followed a decreasing pattern similiar to that in the pattern. I don't remember exactly what I did, but basically I just decreased until there was 6 sts, then cut the yarn and ran it through the remaining sts.
I hope that helps somewhat! Grin

That is absolutely ADORABLE. I completely approve of this use of knitting. The robot is so cute! I want to hug him.
