Materials

Yarns:

- Blue: body and containers

- White: eyes and mouth

- Black: eyes and mouth


Yarn weight is not very important, but please choose the hook accordingly.

I used Catona cotton from Scheepjes (which is 50 grams - 125 m) with a 2.5 mm hook. The end product is around 11*8*6 cm big.

Please note that by using thicker yarn and a bigger crochet hook, your end product will be bigger than mine. You can also create a smaller product by using thinner yarn and a smaller crochet hook.

For stuffing:

You can use the polyfill or any other type of filling you like.

Others:

You can cut cardboard to corresponding shapes, and then glue them to the inside of top body part and container parts. This can help the amigurumi to hold its  shape better.

Kubernetes and Tanzu keychain

Kubernetes is a very popular tool in IT nowadays, but it only has a 2D icon, so I made this keychain pattern. The Tanzu keychain is special for my husband, who is working with it. (Explanation copied from internet: VMware Tanzu is the suite or portfolio of products and solutions that allow its customers to Build, Run, and Manage Kubernetes controlled container-based applications.) The pattern is similar to Kubernetes one, just needs a bit more colour changing.

Raspberry Pi Logo Amigurumi

Recently we are building our own Raspberry Pi cluster, so I made several small raspberries. It took me some while to finally write down this pattern because the colour-changing part is difficult to describe. I am sure this pattern can be improved. Therefore if you find some parts confusing, please leave me a message and I will try my best to help.   If you want an ad-free PDF version you can get the pattern through my Ravelry store : https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/raspberry-pi-logo-amigurumi .
