I decided to make my fiancé a weighted companion cube from the video game Portal. I looked online for a pattern, but all the ones I found were either really puffy--so much so that they almost looked more like spheres than cubes--or otherwise not quite what I was looking for. I finally said, "I'll just make a pattern myself. How hard can it be?" It took a little trial and error, but I eventually got it figured out.
Actually making the cube was insanely tedious work. It took me about 4 months to complete just because I would get annoyed with making the same pieces over and over again and eventually would have to put it down for a while. I finally finished it though, and I think it's pretty awesome.
You can download the pdf of the pattern from Ravelry. Let me know what you think of it, and if you make one, please be sure to let me know (and send me a picture if you can)!
