I just finished 2 sets of the skull holders.  I really liked how they turned out:



I made the blue and green ones as a housewarming present for my friend and the pink and yellow as part of my sister-in-laws birthday present.





I used sugar and cream 100% cotton yarn for both of them.  Thanks for looking!!

YOurs turned out sooo good!  How did you manage to make them look so good when you switched colors.  I tried carrying the color as I crocheted, but, you can see the 'carrying color' plain as day.

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.

Great job, the color changes are so smooth and I love how you made them reverse colors so they match but look different.  Cheesy

You can see the "carrying color" on mine as well.  It helps to pull your yarn tight right after you switch colors and keep your stitching pretty tight as you go along.  Not too tight though because then it's just a hassle to work with.  This was the first time I had ever used 2 colors at the same time and it was a little difficult at first, but once I figured out the tension it got a lot better and I just flipped that potholder over and took a picture of the good side   Wink  That's my real secret!!

been thinking about giving these a go. I have yet to do anything with two colours like this. I think you've inspired me now. Yours look super cool.

Wow I like those. I have to get me some cotton yarn in some goth colors and make some of these for myself, they are awesome.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I made one too! I made it different colours on either side to make it double thick to protect my sister's fancy wooden table.




(Sorry for the large pictures, I haven't yet figured out how to post them smaller here)
