After seeing this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202337.0 post, I had to make my own.  I am stash busting right now, and had the self striping yarn (Paintbox 3, Spring Moss) leftover from some other projects. The cream yarn in encore. I got a bright idea to knit sweaters for my bro +husband, then realized I had no interest in knitting a giant sweater for either of them, so now I'm knitting hats out of all of that.

Anyway, the hat is this hat from magknits:  http://www.magknits.com/Nov06/patterns/fakeisle.htm with this: http://www.supermitten.com/images/SkullCharts.gif to replace the middle pattern.

As for the earflaps, I just picked up 18 stitches, and knitted the chart (3 stiches of seed on either side) and decreased a bit when I got done with the chart. If anyone is dying to know details I'm sure I could write down specifically what I did.  Anywhos here's the pics!

Thank you Smiley The stripes were a bit of a pain, I kept forgetting to carry the cream up the i-cord and I kept having to rip! You can't see it, but after the i-cord I have 10 inch braids, which the cat is trying to eat right now.

Cute hat Smiley Sooo? Is the main portion stranded in the round and the earflaps are knit back and forth using intarsia?

I had to post because, unlike a lot of fellow craftsters, I'm not really into sculls on my stuff...but this is awesome! Plus I'll give mad props to any good knitters out there cus it takes patience (at least for me, cus I'm a crocheter first). Sooooo....really great job!
