Walk Along the Skull-y Edge

A few weeks ago, I found myself brainstorming ideas for new skull shawls.  I wanted to do something a little  different and I decided to try and solidify the pattern of the body while keeping skulls along the edge.

I think this was influenced somewhat by the skull scarf pattern I shared about a month ago.  In that pattern, I decided to create a solid body around the skulls and this shawl is a sort of extension of that idea.

I used acrylic to create this experimental piece, along with an H hook.  It didn’t take too long due to the thickness of the yarn.

I like the look of it and am curious to see how it translates into a smaller lace weight.   Granted, THAT will probably take quite some time to do.

Now I just have to decide what colours to use next! 🙂

  1. I love it! I’ve made one with lace-weight yarn last year, but without the solid inner part – just skulls all over. I made it for a Mexican Dia de los Muertos event I went to. 🙂 I love your idea with solidifying the body of it, though… maybe I’ll try that too. 🙂
