Simple Gifts Day 25 - Big Ben and Little Ben Robots

  • October 25, 2014

These adorable robots are sure to fuel a little one's imagination, no batteries required!

Big Ben and Little Ben Robots, by Amanda Berry, is available for £2.50 GBP (~$4.10) from Ravelry, or you can stop by and purchase the pattern through the shop.  We knit our sample in Plymouth Encore DK, in colors 793 (Light Blue), 3335 (Lime Green) and 235 (Miami Aqua) - less than a skein of each was more than enough to knit both robots.  Felt and button embellishments, along with convenient i-cord handles, add the finishing touches to these cuddly robots.

To ensure the safety of any little ones who might be playing with these toys we took extra care to securely sew on the buttons, but you may wish to substitute felt circles or embroidery floss for the buttons if these are going to be played with in an unsupervised space such as a crib.  

Further details are on our Ravelry project page.
