Whether you are a parent with young children, or you just enjoy making gifts, you’ll be happy to have the Cuddle Robot Toy Crochet Pattern to hand. This cute, little robot just loves to hug. He is quick and easy to make, and makes an adorable gift for any young child, regardless of gender.
The crochet pattern includes:
- Standard US and UK instructions
- Clear photos to guide you to success
You can either make him as a standalone gift, or you can pair him with the Cuddle Robot Baby Blanket or the Cuddle Robot Cushion (or both!) to make an adorable gift set.
This is an easy level crochet project; it is suitable for those that have practiced the basics of crochet and are ready for their next project. The techniques involved are US single crochet (UK double crochet), bobble stitch, working in front and back loops, chaining, and working in rows.
The finished toy is approximately 9 inches tall (23cm).
You can make him in all one colour or choose your own beautiful colour scheme. What colour will you choose?
It can be purchased as part of the Cuddle Robot Baby bundle on Etsy or Ravelry, along with the Cuddle Robot Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern and Cuddle Robot Cushion Crochet Pattern. The toy crochet pattern can also be purchased separately on Ravelry.
If you are anything like me, you give most of your finished crochet projects away as gifts. Usually most of my crochet projects end up in the hands of my two girls, aged 8 and 6, however I had just found out that a close friend of mine was expecting. Now, babies are a reason for everyone to celebrate, however, as a crocheter I was even more excited- here was an opportunity for me to break out the crochet hook and yarn and make something for a baby. AWESOME!
Lockdown across the UK had just begun, so I had time on my hands as after-school clubs and socialising were paused. This could only mean one thing – time for a big project! So I chose to make a blanket large enough for a baby or toddler, and a cushion for Mummy to use in the nursery.
The blanket and the cushion was finished and I started to write up the crochet pattern to share with you. I went with a combination of robots and hearts, using the bobble stitch to create both of them. I started to take photos of the two items and it just felt like something was missing. Then it hit me, how could I have a blanket and cushion with a lovely little robot on it and not have a robot toy to match? Well I had to fix that! An hour or two later and Cuddle Robot was ready to go.
The robot toy needed to complement the set, so I chose the same soft grey and mint green yarn that I used with the blanket. It also needed to be the right size for little hands, so I made it the same size as the robot pattern on the blanket. And for the finishing touch, I also gave it a matching bobble heart on its belly. As a side note I ended up having to make two as my youngest claimed the first one as hers. Do you also end up having to make extras of projects for your little admirers?
So, there you go. I can’t wait for my friend to see the end result. You can find the crochet pattern for Cuddle Robot Toy along with the Cuddle Robot Baby Blanket and Cuddle Robot Cushion available on Etsy or Ravelry. I’d love to see your finished project; you can link to me on Ravelry or visit my Facebook page.
