Mudkip crochet pattern

I herd U liek them ^_____^ 
Being the ‘nerd’ that I am, I could not resist making a Mudkip. They’re probably some of the weirdest Pokémon out there, but there is something about that huge mindless grin that attracts me to them. 

This one came out small enough to function as a keychain. Simply attach a ball chain or keychain to the body or back of the head and this little guy is ready to travel the world with you.

As usual, if you have any questions about this pattern, feel free to contact me or leave a comment.
