Free Pattern: Clippy (Microsoft Office Assistant)

Earlier this year, I saw a photo of a crocheted Clippy, and thought, "I need that pattern!!!" Then I had a second thought of, "Why do I need a pattern for that? I can make it myself!" And it ended up being really easy! So, here it is: a Crocheted Clippy!

Pattern and photos are Copyright © 2012 Lillian Minneman - Just Stitched. Pattern shall remain free, and may not be reproduced or sold. Feel free to link to this pattern. Clippy is copyright to its respective owners. No copyright infringement intended.

Clippy is made in the continuous round. Please read the pattern in full before beginning. Feel free to contact me for any questions.

F or G Hook (whichever you prefer)
2 Pipe Cleaners
WW Yarn in Grey
WW Yarn in Black
WW Yarn in White
Optional: Small amount of fiberfill

Before beginning, attach pipe cleaners together, so you have one long pipe cleaner. You can try using Hot Glue, but I just twisted the two ends together. You may also want to bend the ends of each pipe cleaner so it doesn't poke through your crochet. Make sure you crochet around the pipe cleaners as you go, because it's difficult to add it at the end - trust me!

Body: in grey
Note: If you choose to use fiberfill, stuff LIGHTLY as you go!
Round 1: sc5 in magic circle
Round 2: sc around. (5)
(Optional Round 2: 2sc in each st around [10])
Round 3: sc around. (5)
Repeat round 3 until your crochet completely covers your pipe cleaners.
Last Round: Sc2tog around.

Eye Whites: make 2
Round 1: sc 4 in magic circle
Round 2: 2sc in each st around (8)
Round 3: *2sc in 1 st, 1sc* (12)

Pupils: 2 in black
Round 1: sc 4 in magic circle.

Eyebrows: 2 in black
Row 1: Chain 10
Row 2: DC in next 2, HDC in next 3, SC in last 4.

Assembly: Use the photo as a guide for bending. Sew the eyes and eyebrows on where you see fit.
