This adorable robot is always smiling and has a cute antenna (he uses it to pick up local radio stations so he can dance to the tunes using his long, limber legs).
Yarn: 140-180 yards of main color (for head, body and stripes) 50-80 yards of contrast color for antenna and color work 5 yards of white (for his smile!)
Needles: One set of DPN's, 2-3 sizes smaller than size recommended for the yarn you are using (e.g., if yarn calls for US size 8, us US size 5-6 instead).
Gauge: Not important (yea!) It is important to use smaller needles than those normally recommended for the yarn; this is to create a tightly knit fabric so that the stuffing doesn't show through.
Notions: 2, 2-hole buttons for eyes; pipe cleaner for antenna; stuffing
Finished size: samples range in size from 13"-18"
