While we’re cranking away here at headquarters on the next issue (Volume 18) of our sister publication MAKE, themed Robots, I can’t help but to Flashback to Beth Doherty‘s iconic Cro-bots from way back in CRAFT Volume 01. The design is simple enough that there’s plenty of room for personalizing your Cro-bot to reflect your unique style. Here is the front and back of Beth’s finished Cro-bot:

It’s so much fun to see how peeps modded the Cro-bot. Here are 8 Cro-bots created by crafters and posted to Flickr. Clockwise, from top left, the Flickr peeps (and bot creators) are: beliael, disco smurf, knitbitch, tattis cuties, luv2stitch, craftapalooza, thebodee, and RunnyCustard:

Here is the Cro-bot project in our Digital Edition so you can crochet your own little robot army.
And you can still pick up a back issue of Volume 01, our Premier Issue, in the Maker Shed.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
