Party Robot Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Party Robot Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Party Robot is ready to celebrate and wants to party with you! Whether it’s a birthday, promotion at work, passing an exam, or seeing the new year in. Big or small, Party Robot is ready to rejoice and have some fun. Available to crochet in two different sizes, the party robot amigurumi crochet pattern is a quick and easy-to-make project and ideal if you’re looking to brighten up someone’s day. It is suitable both as a toy or as a celebration gift for a friend (or yourself!).

The time between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day is a special time for me, as it is for most people. School has broken up, and my girls are still young enough that they both need me around to take care of them and want me around to play with them. Christmas decorations are still up and make my house look festive, however the pressure of delivering a successful Christmas is over.

Each day has a light rhythm to is as I alternate from moments of play with my girls, to the necessary chores that having a house with a husband and 2 girls create (yes, I’m talking about the never-ending laundry mountain). And between those moments of life come moments of reflection. These six days, for me, are sacred time to pause, as I say goodbye to the old year and look forward to the promise of hope from the new. The year behind us was definitely one to remember, and not always for good reasons. But life carried on, and there were moments of joy, even in all the chaos and sadness. During this time, I learnt to celebrate the small wins. Tiny moments of joy and victory; reasons to keep on going.

And now the last 12 months are over and a brand new year stretches out in front of us like a promise. I’ll admit that it looks like we still have a few rocky months in front of us, however there is plenty of time for the year to work out. So for now, I’m going to focus on joy and celebrate the small wins. And that is my wish for all of you, may this new year be filled with joy and many small wins, that slowly grow over time into something truly worth celebrating.

What better way to start the new year than with a crochet party? I’d like to introduce you to the latest Cubigurumi (cube + amigurumi) to join the My Crochet Wish family. Whether it’s a big or a little reason to party, there is a Party Robot who is ready to party with you.

I’ll let you in on a little secret-  my birthday later this year is one of those special birthdays that ends in a zero (be kind when you guess which number). So I wanted to design a celebratory amigurumi that could be used for different occasions, and my girls believe the best way to celebrate anything is with a party and balloons. Put the two together and the end result is the Party Robot Amigurumi crochet pattern, which I am excited to share with you.

The Large and Small Party Robots  are part my new Cubigurumi range that you can find on the My Crochet Wish website, alongside my other Cubigurumi like this snowman. Yes, I have an obsession with cubes and yes, there will be more coming this way over the next few months. They are just so quick and easy-to-make and my girls love how cute and different they look compared to their other toys.

Small Party Robot Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

This is an easy pattern suitable for those that have practised the basics of crochet and are ready for their next project. There is no set gauge for this pattern, however the finished size should be approximately 5 inches high (13cm), excluding the hat. Here is what you will need:

Materials

  • You can use any DK or light weight yarn (other yarn thickness can be used – this will result in a different size). I used the following acrylic yarn. You don’t need much.
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Silver 50g (161 yards / 148 metres) – yarn A
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Sherbet 50g (161 yards / 148 metres) – yarn B
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Violet 5g (8 yards / 7.5 metres) – yarn C
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Citron 5g (8 yards / 7.5 metres) – yarn D
  • Polyester stuffing
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Two safety eyes 9mm in diameter

Notes

  • Are you new to crochet? Here is a handy post explaining all the abbreviations.
  • I have used US crochet stitch terms for this post. Check out this US to UK stitch conversion guide if you prefer to work in UK stitches.
  • All pieces, apart from the balloon and hat, are worked in rows, turning after each row.
  • The balloon and hat are worked in continuous (spiral) rounds with right side facing at all times.
  • Unless specified, all stitches should be worked through both loops on the top of the stitch.
  • Keep your stitches tight to produce a solid looking fabric. You don’t want gaps between your stitches.
  • To change colour, work last stitch of old colour to last yarn over. Yarn over with new colour and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Continue with new colour. Fasten off the non-working yarn and weave the end in. Do not carry the non-working yarn.
  • Stuff carefully to maintain the square shape of the amigurumi toy. You can stuff for a more firmer cuddle, however the cubes will start to take a more rounded shape.
  • When you add the stuffing, you do not want to overstuff to the point that the stuffing is visible.

Small Party Robot Assembly

1. Attach the safety eyes to the head rectangle in yarn A, on the same side as the lines left from crocheting in the front loops. Each eye is placed 3 rows up from the bottom edge and 3 stitches in from the side. There are 4 stitches between the eyes.

2. Sew all the individual cubes together (if this is your first time assembling a cube from two rectangles then check out the How to Assemble a Crochet Amigurumi Cube tutorial).

3. Once all 6 cubes are complete, sew the amigurumi together.

4. Fold the rim of the hat up. Lightly stuff the hat and sew into place.

5. Position the balloon so it looks like it is being held and then sew into place with a couple of stitches where the balloon meets the arm. Either leave the ‘string’ of the balloon loose to dangle down in front of the arm or secure it with another couple of stitches. If you wish, you can embroider a short message on to the balloon like the year, or a number, I used yarn D for mine.
