Tux from Linux

In 2019, I published this pattern using the name Evelina Del Bosque on Ravelry. I realised that I make a lot of mistakes in the old pattern. Now I improved the pattern and republished it. Hope you like the new version!

Materials

Yarns:

- White: head, body and eyes

- Black: head, body, wings, eyes and tail

- Yellow: beak and feet

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 8*7*7 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

bbs =basic five-stitch bobble stitch*

dec = decrease by sc 2 together

inc = increase by sc 2 in one st

‘...” = the part you need to repeat


* How to crochet bbs: 

  1. On a wrong-side row, work to the position of the bobble. Wrap the yarn over the hook, work the first stitch, and skip the last stage to leave two loops on the hook.

  2. Work the second and third stitches in the same way. You now have four loops on the hook.

  3. Work the remaining two stitches of the bobble in the same way, so you end up with six loops on the hook.

  4. Wrap the yarn over the hook and draw it through all six loops to secure them and complete the bobble. You may find it helpful to gently poke the bobble through to the right side with the tip of one finger as you draw the securing loop through.

  5. Continue along the row, working bobbles as required. When working the following right-side row, take care to work one stitch into the securing stitch at the top of each bobble.

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 .
