Bad to the bone… It’s Cubone

Hey hey crochet lovers. Take a browse through a Pokédex and you’ll find some strange back stories behind a few of the little fellows. Cubone has one of the saddest stories and tells of a Pokemon pining for its mother and weeping in memory when it looks at the moon. Some even say Cubone wears the skull of its own mother in memory.

Needless to say it’s cheery and whimsical details like these that made me choose Cubone for my next life study.

Is it a Cubone or a Charmander?

This was a delightful pattern to work on and has a lovely shape to it. Part way through it bears a striking resemblance to a Charmander, but once the tail spikes and skull slip in place, there’s no denying it’s a Cubone.
