I love Legos, but often feel I’m to old to play with them. The next best thing is making Lego creations out of yarn.

This is a pretty easy knit pattern. I hate working in the round unless I use double pointed needles and that can be tedious. It’s made in one piece and seamed in the back. The decorations/face are made in crochet and then sewn on.

Happy Knitting and as always contact me if you have questions.
