Introduction: Servbot

This is an amigurumi version of a servbot, a cute little robot found in the Megaman games. 

This is one of my first designs, so it took me awhile to figure out the details of servbot. I began by looking through various images over the internet to get an idea of its basic shapes and proportions. For awhile, I really wasn't sure I could actually come up with a pattern, but amigurumi really is just a bunch of basic shapes put together.

Once I figured out the basic shapes I finally started to crochet. There was a lot of ripping out the yarn and stuffing and re-stuffing, but I finally came up with this pattern. Hope you enjoy!

Materials needed:
Worsted weight yarn in gray, yellow, blue, and light blue.
Hooks G and E
Bits of felt in white, black, yellow, and red
Your choice of stuffing
Yarn Needle
Hot Glue Gun

Abbreviations:
ch: chain
sc= single crochet
inc= increase (2 single crochets in 1 stitch)
dec= decrease ( single crochet 2 stitches together)
BLO= back loops only
FLO= front loops only
** = repeat whatever is in between
(number)= indicates the number of stitches you should have at the end of each round.

This will be broken down into parts to help keep track of tiny pieces.

Felt Details:
-Using yellow felt, cut yellow circles about 2 rounds wide. Glue to body with hot glue gun.

-Use rest of felt to customize the face. I say this because servbots have many different faces. For a starting point, my eyes are a little over 5 rows of the head in diameter. I will also leave a picture for reference.
