Of eggs and Daleks
This pattern is for the small Daleks and the Dalek eggs. The large Dalek was made following this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dalek
I shared the pattern for these a long time ago on my livejournal, but I thought a handy PDF format could be a nice addition to Ravelry’s database. Please note that this file is sketchy compared to my usual patterns and contains no in-progress pictures. But since the patterns are pretty simple and straightforward, I doubt you will have any problems following the instructions. And of course you can always contact me for help should you have any difficulty.
The pattern uses US crochet terminology.
I made the eggs in spirals and the small Daleks in joined rounds for perfect symmetry, but you can change that if you wish.
You can use any yarn (though they look best from yarns with good stitch definition), as long as you choose your hook accordingly - DK with 3 mm hook will result in eggs about as big as chicken eggs. Just watch out they don’t hatch! :)
