Ryan the Robot

IMG_1083

Ryan the Robot is ready for programming, but don’t be surprised if he malfunctions and does his own thing instead. He’s not very good at listening to commands, but he sure does love to be cuddled.

This finished pattern is approximately 15 inches tall from the top of his antennae to the bottom of his feet. Using baby yarn makes him extra soft and extra cute.

If you want a pattern that you can save on your computer and easily print, this pattern is available in my Ravelry shop for only $2.00. I love printing patterns and saving them in a binder to keep track of the ones I’ve done and the ones I still plan to do. If you purchase this pattern on Ravelry, you also get the pattern for the mini robots.
