Or on the bed. Which ever you prefer. Skeleton afghan almost done.  I ran out of blue (short 2 rounds can you believe it?) If I cannot find the match I will finish it off and use it as is.  It is about the size of a single bed. Worked up incredibly quickly. I will most definitely do this pattern again.

The skull pattern can be found here:
http://fearandloathingwithyella.blogspot.ca/2012/11/crochet-skull-pattern.html (no longer working below is new link)
Then I crochet as if doing granny squares. 4 dc groups across the top and 6dc groups down the side + 2 tr along the jawline. If you look closely at the close-up pic you will get my meaning. Made entirely in Red Heart super saver yarn.

This is fabulous! Nothing like a snuggle with some bones to keep you warm, right?
