Hi all!

So after doing numerous searches here, ravelry, google, everywhere I could think of... I've come up blank. I'm making a blanket for my sister's 16th birthday in June (because I'm just that cool) and I'm doing it in six and twelve inch squares.... And she loves skulls, so I thought I'd like to stick one on there. Problem? I cannot find one ANYWHERE. ><:; Tried to make one myself, and I"m just not that good. Anyone have any tips? Even just like... A solid square I could potentially do one ON? I'm at a total loss, and any help anyone would offer would make me love you forever... Smiley

Thanks in advance!!

There's a pattern for potholders with skulls on them in the Happy Hooker book.

Yeah, I've looked at that one. The problem there is that it comes out 9.5"x8" and I need a six inch square, and I sort of stink at trying to alter patterns. I may give it a try, but I was hoping for something that was a little less extra work, haha.

If you change hook sizes, add rows on the top/bottom or just make it wider it will come out the size you want.

I hear you.  I'd never be able to make it change from 9.5 to 6 inches.  That's like, maths and stuff.

Can you just add extra rows to the square to make it the size you need?

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

No, because I need a smaller square... *sigh* I just have to be tricksy. Heh. Well, if this doesn't work right, I may just make a 12" square, but.. yeah.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
