FREE Inky Crochet Pattern

Updated: Aug 17, 2021


A couple of months ago, my boyfriend recommended me a webtoon to read called "Dark Mortal" and after a couple of chapters, I got completely hooked!


Without any spoilers, the story follows the main character, Nam, as he learns to navigate through his high school life with his little friend, Inky, by his side! Catch is, no but Nam can see Inky, so there are many funny moments where Nam is interacting with Inky while others just look at Nam with utter confusion.
