Tap into your evil genius side and make a standing army of Robots or just knit one for a kid who likes space stories. The finished Robot is child friendly as there are no inserts in the legs to help him stand, this Robot stands up through the power of yarn engineering.
For an INTERMEDIATE knitter because the construction uses short row shaping (explained in the pattern) and 3 Needle bind off. The Robot is mostly knitted flat on straight needles with some knitting in the round. There is only one sewn seam in this pattern.
