I was inspired to make a sweater with skulls like "Skully" from SnB, but more fitted. I followed the insctructions for making a top down raglan from glampyre's site here: http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id44.html. Doing sweater's top down is great because you can try it on as you knit so you know it will fit and best of all there is no seaming  Cheesy. The chart for the skulls is also on glampyre's site. Anyway, here it is!



and a closeup of the skulls

I love your fitted version. I've been wanting to make the SnB one, but I know I'd be swimming in it. You did a great job making a more feminine version of it.

Thank you for all the nice comments! I loved making this sweater and I think I will make all my next sweaters using this top down method. I'd highly recommed it to anyone considering trying it out.
