The photograph fails to show the robot-like shiny thread running through the grey wool, shame as I was so very pleased to find a suitable wool that was still soft. I used Peter Pan Moondust wool, possibly in Bunny, though I can't find the label. I knitted with the recommended 4mm needles for this DK rather than the 2.75mm stated in the pattern, so maybe Patch's robot is a little larger. I also used all of the 50g ball, which is partly why this robot has stripey arms. Also I really liked the striped look. The stripes and other colour bits are knitted with a bamboo DK from the pile. Robot is finished with some starry buttons from Great Gran's tin rather than the felt circles used in the pattern.
An easy knit, though I need to improve colourwork as poor robot has rather a tight little tum. A delighted P on Christmas morn... I really should knit for him more often!
