11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet skull shawl on: September 21, 2013 12:41:41 AM
So another typical long time lurker, first time poster.
I came across this pattern a few months ago and decided to finally make one up for a thank you present. i had a little trouble with the pattern being a little bit vague at times so ended up doing it over and over until i got it how i wanted it. first shawl took me around 30 or so hours with all the reworking i had to do. the second one which is the present, ended up taking about 15 hours.

this is the finished one I'm semi happy with. the checkerboard of the skulls isn't quite what i expected it to turn out as.

i decided to add my own boarder, i think it kind of completes it as a shawl.

 and the original stuff up. you can probably spot its flaws quite quickly, things being out of line and the diamonds aren't exactly spot on. but failing and it still looking semi pretty made me want to get it right.

anyway it's a pretty spiffy pattern

the lady is German and the patterns a bit hard to follow  however there is also a ravelry link [I'm unsure if it's a better pattern or not but its the exact same shawl]

just thought I'd share seeing as i hadn't spotted it on here.

side note: in her post she believes that the eyes sit better when you make them separate. however i found with the yarn i used they looked a lot better when they were crocheted in straight away.

i used fly wire. we had some left over from redoing all our screen doors. it works a treat. i used a staple gun to keep it in place. just make sure if you do, that you check the depth of what you're nailing... i got a bit excited and popped a staple in only to realize the ends were poking out the front.

you found a rather gorgeous frame for it though. very nice.

was curious what they were actually made out of myself and apparently canvas and duckcloth are usually used to make 'institutional straitjackets'
