A couple of years ago, I got really interested in the idea of knitted robots. I scoured the intertubes for robot patterns, but none that I found met my satisfaction. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted: something like this or this.
Since I couldn't find something that met my specifications, I started noodling around with making my own patterns. My first attempt was a felted (of course) robot.
I'll be honest. I think it came out okay, but this might be the first time in the history of my knitting life that I think that the felting did more damage than good. Don't get me wrong, he's a nice robot-man, but the felting added personality that wasn't in my plan. For example, his rectangle mouth box was transformed into a smile. His ear antennae shrunk unevenly. But overall, for a prototype, he's not too shabby. These days he's keeping my friend the Shocktopus company.
He lives with a handsome little dude in Portland named Dashiell.
