ROBOTS TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
A pair of busy robots, always ready to lend a helping hand. The big robot has a back pocket for stashing secrets or spare fuel packs, and a concealed front panel with buttons. Both robots have an aerial which can be used as a handle for carrying around.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the two robots, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the aerials/handles which are i-cord tubes knitted on two DPNs. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work basic increases and decreases, change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes), knit i-cord and sew seams. The eye panels are embroidered onto the robots after knitting using Swiss darning (or duplicate stitch) embroidery.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- Two 3.5mm DPNs (US 4) to make the handles
