Skully was the first sweater I ever made.  You can see pictures of it here:  http://www.pinkhairedgirl.com/archives/2004_02.php#002377

I used Rowan cork on size eleven needles.  It's a very good warm & cozy sweater for wearing while sitting around your house in winter.

If I look manic it's because I love Dane Cook and was like, "Dane Cook is touching my knitting!!!" SO Marcia Brady.

Ah! I love Dane Cook - I think I had the same look on my face when I met him too, hahaha. Oh, and grrreat sweater Smiley

I'd like to try and make Skully for my boyfriend (and brave the curse) but my boyfriend is pretty broad shouldered.  Has anyone altered the pattern for their man?

I made the skully sweater for my best friend. I did change the yarn, and used Patons Shetland Chunky (http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=88320&PRODID=85763) The yarn worked really great. No problems with that.

The pattern for Skully is pretty straight foward and easy. I even edited the size by casting on more front/back stitches. The only issue I have is that I somehow managed to misread the pattern and bound off the shoulder stitches on each front/back piece. It worked out alright...because I just sewed the shoulders together at the end. I omitted the skulls on the sleeves too.

Yeah, this pattern is pretty flexible.  I made two for swaps, one with a hood and another just following the pattern.  I used Caron Simply Soft, holding two strands together.

HOLY CRAP ITS A HOODY SKULLY. That is awesome Smiley

Well! Anyhow, my two cents: I made this too. It is pretty bulky... i haven't worn it much yet (i finished it in the beginning of summer, smart me...) so I can't say much about the mohairy-goodness of it getting in lipgloss, but I do remember it shedding on my clothes when I was making it.

Furthermore, I had to buy I think an extra skein or two of the gray, but that might have been because I made the sleeves a little longer and I changed the skull to the Heartless Symbol from Kingdom Hearts (... NERD!!!) and there's much more black in it.

I really should post it... hm.
