Since I started doing Doctor Who amigurumi, I have gotten requests for K-9. He presented a challenge to me, and I love doing people, so I kind of put him off. But if I could make a big boxy TARDIS, I thought I could definitely handle doing a little robotic dog.
I used several of the same techniques in making K-9 as I did for the TARDIS. If you own that pattern, you probably will see what I mean. I have to get really technical planning these out! There is a ton of measuring, sketching, really mapping, to get it how I want it. I can crochet in the round for days and not even give it a second thought when it comes to writing out a pattern, but the geometric shapes I have to do for these guys gets a little complicated.
Lucky for you, you don't have to do any of that math. I wrote up the pattern for K-9 and took tons and tons of photos so he should be relatively simple. I hope you like him. I think he's pretty cute, for a robot.
