Cyberman Crochet Graphghan Pattern SC 180 x 240
From The Graphalo - Fandom and pop culture crochet and knitting patterns perfect for everyone from absolute beginners to experts.
Inspired by Doctor Who's terrifying adversary - The Cybermen.
The Cybermen are a species of emotionless space-faring cyborgs who convert human beings (or other similar species) to join and populate their ranks. First appearing in 1966, the Cybermen were created by Dr. Kit Pedler (the unofficial scientific advisor to the show) and story editor Gerry Davis.
The Cybermen have seen many redesigns and costume changes over Doctor Who's long run, as well as a number of varying origin stories. In their first appearance, The Tenth Planet (1966), they are humans from Earth's nearly identical "twin planet" of Mondas who upgraded themselves into cyborgs in a bid for self-preservation. Forty years later, "The Age of Steel" (2006) depicted the Cybermen as a business corporation's invention on a parallel universe version of Earth. Doctor Who audio dramas, novels, and comic books have also elaborated on existing origin stories or presented alternatives. The television show's 2017 episode "The Doctor Falls" explains the different origins as parallel evolution, due to the inevitability of humans and human-like species attempting to upgrade themselves through technology; this perspective resolves continuity differences in the Cybermen's history.
A mainstay of Doctor Who since the 1960s, the Cybermen have also appeared in related programs and spin-off media, including novels, audiobooks, comic books, and video games. Cybermen stories were produced in officially licensed Doctor Who products between 1989 and 2005, when the TV show was off the air, with writers either filling historical gaps or depicting new encounters between them and the Doctor. The species also appeared in the Doctor Who TV spin-off Torchwood, appearing in the fourth episode, "Cyberwoman" (2006).

Single Crochet/ Cross Stitch
The pattern comes with written line by line instructions. The final stitch count is provided. The instructions are for right handed but if you're left handed you can read the rows backwards or add an extra row at the beginning of each panel so row 1 in the pattern will be your row 2, row 2 will be your row 3 etc.
The finished size of the graphghan will vary depending on the hook size and yarn.
This listing is for pattern only- not a finished graphghan.
