This is for one of my closest friends for her birthday. She loves black and white, especially stripes and anything piratey, so this was the obvious thing to make her.

Here it is on my bear, looking like a regular stripy scarf


And stretched out on the floor. The skull motifs are only visible at a particular angle


And folded up, where the skull is obvious. You can also see the fringe

Thankyou!

Yeah, lisateacher, I had a chart of just a skull and crossbones, and in my head I knew where to knit and purl. That link seems pretty good. I forget where I first learnt the technique Tongue

That's awesome! It looks so cute on your bear too Smiley  Is the illusion knitting difficult?  Great job!
