    I have an Apple (iPhone), but I love the little Android guy. I’ve always thought it was super cute! I’m definitely going to have to try this pattern out.

  3. […] I’m still on the toy kick. I really want to make the Android by Crayons and Milk. I spotted the pattern a couple of days ago and just fell in love. See, I have an iPhone and family […]

    Thank-you for the pattern – these are just adorable.

  7. How clever and cute they are!!
    Perhaps I will try some knitting to have one of these little guys accompany my android phone?

    • OOooo I thought about making a mini version that could be like those cell phone accessories, then after 5 Androids, I got lazy and just wanted to move on to the next project hahaha If you do have a chance to do some knitting, send me a pic, i’d love to see it :)

    very nice! :) I wish I could manipulate knitting needles the same way I can crochet…the most I ever got knitting was quilt squares & scarves ;)

  11. Those are so neat! My kiddo would have so much fun with them, too bad I don’t know how to knit haha. :)

  12. Great pattern…I hope you don’t mind, I’ve scheduled a blog post (for June 3) on my blog about your pattern, and linked for my readers to go to your blog for the pattern.

    So adorable! I’m an apple iPhone person myself, but the Androids are cute!

    • I would love to get an iphone because I’m addicted to many games on my friend’s phone! Unfortunately i’m bound to my current phone so maybe in a couple of years :(. What’s your fav app on the iphone?

  14. Amy P Says:

    Ha! Those are a-dork-able! I got an Android for my new phone and I’m rather a convert, but everything else I own is Apple.

    • HAHAHAHA A-dork-able!! I love it! I own a lot of Apple products as well! I walked by one of those cell phone booths today and saw a cardboard cut out of the Android logo and I wanted to just take it and run for my life. My plan worked out in my head, but my body made no action towards making that plan work.

    I loathe knitting or crocheting plushies but I love looking at them! These knitted Androids are super cute from my friend at the crayons and milk blog.

    I can’t admit to liking anything about Android phones but these are great. :)

  17. […] From my post I tried to create her Android and got a tall one instead! So funny! I gave it a friend to keep it company. Thanks CrayonsandMilk! […]
