well i looked and looked for a simple single crochet male sweater but couldn't find one so i went for the jolly roger but i changed it up a bit, first i didn't do the skull i made a ribcage pattern and for the sleeves i'm putting the arm bones, and then there's some minor stitch things i didn't do. i think the pattern came out pretty well except that it came out looking skinny because of the HDC's i think and just the nature of crochet or whatever other than that it came out pretty satisfactory for me. so i'm off to start the back and the sleeves and i'll post the finished pictures then. so now all i have to do is make a skull mask or add a hood with a profile skull and make some gloves with hand bones and i'm set for halloween!! oh also i'll need some pants.....anyone got a pattern for that?? hehe. seriously i wouldn't mind having one.

I love this...!  If only I were ``5 years  younger!  I would have done just about anything for this sweater - my kids would probably think I was just gruesome now if I put it on.

Great job.  I love your rib cage!

you're carrying the yarn through the same way you would for the skullholder, right?

how stiff is the sweater going to be?

and what yarn did you use? the recommended one?

i have a skully from the first knitting book that quincy134 made me out of caron simply soft, i'd love to do this one in the same once i get down to the states and stock up on it....

Okay... I have Photoshop... how do you map out  a picture?  I have been wanting to do some charts for the longest time and would love to know how to do this.  Every time I tell my husband about it he  is at a loss on how it is done (computer genius) I would love to know!  I have some drawings I have done that I want to make up as afghans for my kids... and this would be soooo helpful!
