My boys only casually watched this Umizoomi show so I wasn’t terribly familiar. I had a friend ask if I would make a Bot plush for her daughter’s birthday so I had to figure one out. I love the way he came out! Even if you aren’t familiar with the show he’s still and adorable little robot guy!!!

- I would consider this an intermediate pattern, or advanced beginner, due to the use of Front and Back Post Stitches. If you aren’t familiar with the technique it could seem a little tricky.
- Unless noted, this project is worked in joined rounds. Each round starts with a Ch 1 and ends with a sl st to the first stitch of the round. I did this so that the color changes would be crisper.
1) Using the Magic Ring technique (OR Ch 3 and join with a sl st to the first chain to form a ring) SC 8 (8)
2) 2SC in each around (16)
3) *SC in next, 2SC* Repeat from * to * around. (24)
4) SC in each around. (24)
5) *SC in next 2, 2SC in next* Repeat from * to * around. (32)
6) *SC in next 3, 2SC in next* Repeat from * to * around. (40)
7) SC in each around. (40)
8) *SC in next 4, 2SC in next* Repeat from * to * around. (48)
9-10) SC in each around. (48)
Switch to Blue
11) *FPSC around next 7, 2FPSC around next stitch (increase)* Repeat from * to * around. (54 FPSC)
12) BPSC around each FPSC of the last round. (54 BPSC)
Switch to Black but leave working Blue, you’ll pick it back up for the next round.
13) Sl st loosely around (54 Sl st)
This round serves as the mouth. You could skip the sl st round if you’d like and stitch a line with black when you are done.
Switch to Blue
14) In the tops of the BPSC of Round 12 (skipping the black sl st round) *HDC in next 7 stitches, HDC DEC* Repeat from * to * around (48 HDC)
15) BPSC in each around (48)
Place eyes before you get too far into the next Green section. I placed mine between Rounds 9 and 10, approximately 5 stitches apart. You’ll probably want to place the eyes so that the seam where you joined your rounds is on the backside.
Switch to Green
16) FPSC in each BPSC around (48)
17) SC in next 11, SC DEC, SC in next 22, SC DEC, SC in next 11 (46)

29) SC in each around (32)

Wrap this piece around the bottom of the green shell part and sew shut. Go through the Green as you are weaving in the ends to secure the two pieces together.
I start putting BOT together by sewing on the antenna. BOT’s antenna is over his left eye and slightly forward from the center of his head.
Next sew on the Tummy Screen. Center this piece on the front of his body. Using the eyes as a guide.
Sew the arms on either side of the body. Since the Tummy Screen is on, use that to help make them even as well. So if you put the left arm on 5 stitches away from the edge of the screen, you’ll put the right arm on 5 stitches away on the other side.
For the legs, I put them closer together and toward the front rather than completely centered on the bottom. I planned on him to be more of a sitter anyway. As always, use your judgement!
Watch how Bot comes together! 🙂
