Toy patterns-for people who enjoy knitting toys | Alan Dart All the patterns in the Toy Patterns Shop are available as PDF downloads, and range from 5 to 28 pages each. Printed paper versions are not produced, and a mail order service is not possible. Each pattern includes photograph(s) of the finished toy, and the size of these have been kept small so as not to use too much of your ink. The number of photographs will vary from pattern to pattern, depending upon how many are available, as those in older designs were only taken as a reference before the toy was sent off to the magazine. However, patterns of recent designs contain more photographs, including close-up views of important details to help with the making-up process. The patterns cost from £2.50 each, which is payable through PayPal, either via your PayPal account or by using a credit or debit card. VERY IMPORTANT! Once downloaded and saved, the patterns can be printed out on ordinary copy paper. Please note that patterns of licensed characters are not available for downloading.

Crochet an Android Robot I love the Android logo guy. He’s adorable. So I thought I’d make a stuffed one! I improvised the entire pattern as I went, so this is a bit of a rough how-to, and can be adapted to make robots of all shapes and sizes. You know that little flash widget thing Google gives devs that generates infinite random robots? To make your own cuddly little robot, you will need: Crochet hook: Size K (6.5mm)Tapestry needleYarn: 1 skein (170 yards) Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Fern or other worsted weight yarn, and a small amount of scrap white yarnStuffing of your choice. He’s basically all single crochet, and intentionally a little asymmetrical and off-center, as I wanted to add a bit of softness to a very geometric design (also, not having to count stitches is quite satisfying). Step 1: Body Chain 20, or as many stitches as you’d like his body to be tall. Using a tapestry needle, stitch the two short sides of the rectangle (red in the illustration) together to create a tube.
