I saw a similar robot to this while browsing Pinterest one day, but could not find a pattern to make one of my own…so I decided to write one myself! Therefore, I present to you my first 100% hand-written crochet pattern!

Yay!

I love this little robot so much…and this project works up surprisingly fast. Nonstop you could easily make one in a couple hours. I think I might have to make him a little robot buddy or lady friend so he’s not lonely!

Want to make one of your own? Check out the free crochet pattern below!

  • Join bottom panel to bottom of top head panel.
  • Join back head panel to bottom of bottom head panel.

  • Now it’s time to weave in all those ends!
  • Phew! Now this is what the head of your robot should look like, with the right panel still open:

Now is also a great time to add facial features to your robot.

Once your facial features have been added, stuff the head, pushing stuffing into the corners to create a more defined corner. Join right panel to sides of the front and back panels and bottom panel. Cast off and weave in ends.

Yay! Here’s our finished head piece:

Instructions (Assembly):

Assembling your little robot is super easy! Simply thread your tapestry needle with some excess green thread and run it through the middle three stitches on the top panel of the body and then through the middle three stitches on the bottom panel of the head. I took a pic of mine so you can see…I ran it through twice…so the body dangles just a little from the head, but I love it that way!

Then just weave in the ends from that string and your robot is ready.

To add arms, legs, and head pieces, I just used pipe cleaners and shoved them into the spaces between my stitches. For the arms, I cut a pipe cleaner in half, then in half again, then wound the ends into small spirals. Then just shove the straight end into each side of the body. I did the same for the legs and the yellow head pieces.

I also added a string to the top of the robot so he could hang if he wanted to!

When completed, this little guy is a little bigger than my hand and I just love how he turned out! I need to make another so he has a friend!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun pattern! I had a great time writing it and I’m in love with this little buddy! ❤
