My sister has been doing Hamlet in highschool, and for her creative response wanted to crochet a skull. After searching for a few hours for a pattern she asked me to create her a more realistic one. This is what I've come up with, what do you think?

 Thank you for all your comments, a bit overwhelmed.
I thought I'd add some pics of the empty skull, and the prop for inside.





I do have the original pattern, and I'm currently working it through to simplify it, cause it's a bit backwards. If I can translate my own work  Grin I'll post it.  Thanks again for the This ROCKS! I just couldn't do it, so very sorry to all those who waited patiently.

That's great! Very realistic, is it solid or hollow?

The skull is hollow, but to make it stand on its own I made a soft cylinder shape out of feather wool and stuffed that, then inserted it into the skull. I'll try and get a photo of it without the insert too.

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 just made my own skull using the Lion Brand yard pattern, but its very small and not as realistic as this one. ( And, in fact, I think the pattern has some errors)

This is just great! I have been wanting to make something larger and more realistic. I highly doubt you kept a pattern, but if so, I would love to have it!

Cheers and awesome job!
