Let me introduce you to my newest buddy!
The lego man that I knit earlier this month (Some Assembly Required), is now decked out in WAFFLES and K-Botics gear! I had such fun making the teensy tiny clothes….that once I made a hat, I couldn’t stop! The WAFFLES shirt was knit from yellow baby weight yarn (very light fingering yarn) from the top down with raglan sleeve shaping. The shirt needed a row of ribbing at the bottom to keep it from rolling. The WAFFLES motif was stitched on later in chain stitch.
I used acrylic yarn (bits and pieces left over from knitting robot hats) to make the purple and blue clothing, but I needed to split the yarn up, and use a single ply, and sock needles (2.0mm DPNs). The hat was knit from the crown to the brim in stripes incorporating the K-BOTICS and 2809 colourwork section before a row of ribbing and casting off.
The sweater is knit from the collar down, raglan style ending with a row of ribbing. Sleeve stitches were picked up and knit to the cuff, then I picked up the neck stitches and improvised a hood that would fit over a lego head–significantly different proportions than a human head! I embroidered K-BOTICS and our logo on the sweater using light blue, to match our team hoodies.
This little guy is looking for a new friend. I may have to make one or two more when I get a bit of free time!
What should his name be?
