Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Crochet Pattern

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a neat pattern with you: Spike, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I can’t say I know too much about this character, having never actually watched the show. The idea for this pattern actually came from a request that I got on my Instagram, and it was a really fun challenge for me to make. If you want to request a pattern, you can submit one in the highlight bubble on my Instagram. Enjoy the pattern!
