Worsted Weight Companion Cube!

The only point of learning any and every craft is to make your own video game-themed accessories. Anyone who's ever had a NES and a crochet hook knows that.

So what do you do when Christmas is coming, you have no idea what to get for your brother, and you've incinerated your only Weighted Companion Cube? You knit your own, of course.

Awwww.

It took me forever, and it didn't turn out perfectly, but I'm still pretty proud of it. And yes, I will share the pattern! Keep an eye on this blog for the next few weeks and I'll get it up.

In the meantime, Weighted Companion Cube and the amigurumi Fighter I made last year can be seen on Joystiq. I'm sort of famous!

Even Sparky likes it!

Yes! You're an internets celebrity now! And you have the approval of cats.

Oh my GOD, thank you so much! This is great. I can't wait until you post the pattern - I have a friend that I really, really want to make that for. I also like yours better than the other companion cube I've found that's just flat, because this one looks more real :) I hope your pattern is posted soon, I'd love to get started on this project!

Definitely a better looking cube than the others I've seen on the internet.

I'll be waiting (impatiently) for that pattern! :)

Thanks a bunch!
