Clank Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

One of my favorite franchises from the PS2 and early PS3 eras was the action platformer series Ratchet and Clank. Being a platformer fan I enjoyed the gameplay and the series’ wacky humor. While Ratchet may be the main protagonist in the series, I was always partial to his robot sidekick Clank. So for this week’s Geeky Crochet I decided to make a Clank amigurumi.

This post provides step-by-step instructions on how to crochet your own Clank amigurumi. The Clank amigurumi stands around 10-11 inches tall. I would classify the Clank pattern as moderately difficult as the pattern doesn’t use any difficult stitches but it does require making quite a few pieces.

Note: This pattern is provided for free so I would appreciate that it not be used for commercial use. You may not copy this pattern and then try to sell it. I would appreciate that this pattern not be copied and posted in its’ entirety on other websites. Feel free to post images of your completed works wherever you want but a link back to this page would be appreciated.
