Now this is just what I wanted. All you see are pumpkins and witches or a ghost pattern to crochet. This is different and I must be weird because I think he is cute. It's easy, different and after reading the directions, I see that it won't take much yarn or time!

Look at this crocheted skeleton! Now I have seen it all. And I must make this. I don't care if it's not Halloween. This really seems like a very fun project to undertake. And it should not take up too much of my time, either. I like that the main skelly color is a bone color and not white.
