These are instructions to make a classic 1970s grey and black Dalek or a bronze and gold new series Dalek. They are quite complicated, using different stitches and some difficult colour changes, so this pattern is recommended for fairly experienced amigurumi crocheters.

Use double knitting (dk) weight yarn. This is equivalent to light worsted, although worsted weight should work just fine, as long as you use the same weight of yarn throughout.

For classic grey and black Dalek:
Approx 35g grey yarn.
Approx 20g black yarn.

For new series bronze and gold Dalek:
Approx 35g ‘bronze’ mid brown yarn.
(I used King Cole Pricewise DK - Taupe 37)
Approx 20g black yarn.
Approx 20g ‘gold’ yarn.
(I used King Cole Big Value DK - Fawn 340)
Small amount of silver grey yarn.

For both:
Small amount of blue yarn.
Small amount of white yarn.
Tapestry needle.
3.5mm hook (US E hook).

Finished size: approximately 7” tall
