Materials

Yarns:

- Light Blue: body and ears

- White: eyes and teeth

- Black: eyes, nose and ears

- Tan: mouth, arms. legs and tail

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 10*8*5 cm big. The small version is around 6*5*4 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.

Abbreviations

Rnd = round

ch = chain

st = stitch

ss = slip stitch

sc = single crochet

dec = decrease by sc 2 together

inc = increase by sc 2 in one st

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.

Recently we are building our own Raspberry Pi cluster, so I made several small raspberries.
