The robot apocalypse has never looked so appealing. Prepare your kitchen for our robot overlords with this double-sided tapestry crochet potholder. It's cute and definitely functional--crocheted at a tight gauge in 100% cotton yarn, and it'll be a workhorse. This pattern is also a great stashbuster--it only takes about 70 yards (65 meters) of each main color, plus 10 yards of a third color for the border. Gauge is unimportant as long as the fabric produced is sufficiently tight. This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners. Chains, single crochet, and slip stitch are the only stitches used, but a familiarity with tapestry crochet color changes is recommended. The pattern includes basic written instructions and the robot is fully charted. And of course, there's no need to limit yourself to potholders--you can use the robot chart in any crochet project! Scarves, kids' sweaters, bags, you name it--what wouldn't look better adorned with a friendly robot? You're welcome to sell what you make from this pattern, though I would appreciate credit as the pattern designer. You may NOT sell, copy, or otherwise redistribute the pattern itself, in either electronic or hard-copy form. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY chain single crochet slip stitch change colors read a chart GAUGE gauge is not critical for this project--just be sure to work tightly to make a nice thick fabric SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 7 3/4" wide x 8" high 20 cm high x 21 cm wide SUGGESTED YARN 150 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN any 100% cotton

By day, I'm a mild-mannered museum worker, laboring for truth, justice, and item-level location tracking. By night, I'm an obsessive crocheter who falls asleep thinking about charts and colorways and stripe patterns. When I first started crocheting, I spent a lot of time buying into the myths about what crochet could and couldn't do (and worse, about what I couldn't and couldn't do). Several uninspired scarves and a disastrous ripple afghan later, I decided that was a boring attitude to take, and I'd have a lot more fun (and produce better work) if I just made what I wanted to make and figured it out as I went along. Several years down the road, I now love crochet more than ever, and I'm so excited to be along for the ride as it goes in new and interesting directions. My rock band will be called the Yarn-Bombing Hooligans. I don't expect that I will survive the zombie apocalypse.
