When I heard about this challenge, I knew that I wanted to combine my love for crochet, cross stitch, and anything skull and skeleton related into one crazy project. I had this cowl in mind but I think that adding the cross stitch really pulled everything together!

Front:


Back:


Total Length:


Me Wearing My New Cowl in 90 Degree Weather:  Tongue



Process:
I used the following fibers and add-ins to spin the yarn for my cowl - merino, soy, fleece, bamboo, carbonized bamboo, milk silk, angelina, firestar, wool nubs, silk cocoons, fake spider webs, lace, ribbon, an old ripped stocking, gray variegated thread, sparkly thread, glass beads, plastic skull beads, pewter charms, sequins, seed beads, chain, and a plastic dangly skeleton.



Final Yarn:


Cross Stitch:


I am so pleased with it! Now to wait for about 5 months in order to wear it.  Roll Eyes Hope you guys like it!

I haven't cross stitched in ages (about 20 years, since I was a teen)  I might have to give it a go. Your skully inspired me Thanks! Grin
