Trinket is also available in Whimsical Little Knits 3 which comes with instant ebook access.

This little robot has all of the most important features: wheels for speeding around on adventures, dials and gauges, an antenna for communicating important messages (or chewing on), long arms for reaching everything and a pocket for carrying your most treasured toys and trinkets. The body, head and antenna are worked in the round in one piece and stitches for the arms and wheels are picked up from the stuffed body. The pocket is actually a solution to a technical problem, I didn’t want to deal with working the intarsia panels on the front in the round, but nor did I want a seam: the pocket panel neatly fills the space.
