A lot of times when I tell people I'm a fan of a comic book series called Bone they atomatically assume it's something dirty. It's not, Jeff Smith's Bone series actually got it's start in a Disney kids magazine.

Here is my amigurumi Fone Bone which I just finished this morning:



I'm really pleased with the technique I used for his nose. Rather than whipstitching a nose on to a completed circle I actually crocheted two half circles together. I got the idea from this Heart pattern: http://www.pepika.com/free-patterns/heart.htm. The head piece was 30 sc wide, and the nose piece was 20 sc wide. I made the head a couple rounds longer than the nose then whipstitched only 5 stitches of each piece together, then crocheted around the outer perimeter which was 40 sc wide. I did a couple of rounds at 40 then started the decrease rounds.



The head and body are all one piece. The arms, feet and legs were made separately and whipstitched on afterwards. I only stuffed him lightly because I wanted him to be pretty squishy.



It's occurred to me that I could probably spend the rest of the year making the rest of the non-human characters from the Bone series, but I'm going to try to resist the temptation. I'm definately going to try to put together Fone Bone's cousin Phoney. He's exactly the same size and shape, but wears a black shirt with a star on it. I may do their other cousin Smiley too, but that will require a slightly different shape. If anyone wants to know more about the comics, check out the info on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boneville.

Thanks for looking!

Aaah! It's so cute! I love the Bone series!  Grin

And I know what you mean about the title, I hate it when I'm looking for it in a store and I have to ask the cashier if they stock a graphic novel called...Bone. Embarrassed Unless they know what it is they give me really weird looks and send me to the back of the store where I won't contaminate the other, innocent readers!

Well done on the little guy, You should make phoney bone or smiley bone next so he can have someone company!

I had completely forgotten about that comic.  It was in Disney Adventures, right? I loved that magazine! You really took me back with this (and he's so cute too.)

I really like it, and I like the technique you used for the nose.

Your comment made me laugh Rio_Supreme because I've had this experienc too. Right now I'm collecting the new colourized Bone books that Scholastic is releasing and for some reason my comic book shop doesn't carry them, but the mainstream bookstores do. I get the reaction you've mentioned or I get clerks who just assume I'm buying them for a small child when they're actually for me and I'm 31.
 
Thanks to everyone for all the compliments. I'm glad you like my little Fone Bone! I've posted the (free) pattern on my blog if anyone wants it http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

I really do want to make Bartleby, the baby rat creature, sometime so if anyone has any suggestion as to what I could use for his shiny red eyes please send me a personal message or post your suggestion in this thread. I'm willing to buy a set of eyes/beads/buttons? online, but so far in my searching I haven't found anything that's quite right.
