More Than Meets the Eye

As soon as I saw the Crobots book by Nelly Pailloux, I knew I had to have it. I loved the idea of little crochet robots, some of them using other materials, such as screws, bolts, and springs. When I bought the book, I wasn't very experienced, but I found my first Crobot very easy to make. It took me only a day (I don't remember when exactly I made this, but I'd say sometime around the beginning of June), and had a great time finding parts to add to it from my husband's tool box. I'm just now sharing it on the blog, because I didn't have another spring to add for his second arm until now. He is very small, as you can see in one of the pictures below.

Materials used:

3.50 (E) hook
Red Heart Design Sport (face-Pool), Red Heart Soft (head/body- Chocolate)
2 safety pins (for the ears)
2 buttons (for the eyes)
1 screw
2 springs from ballpoint pens (for the arms)
10 washers (for his legs/feet)
Poly Fluff stuffing
Yarn needle
