Skulls Scarf

Lifted from Crazy in Suburbia, January 2006

This is the first of many scarves I made based on a pattern I found at www.knitty.com. It was designed by a woman who lives in San Francisco so the scarf seemed more intended for fashion than the cold of a Canadian winter: it was only four inches wide for the plain part. For this version, I made the skulls slightly larger than the original pattern, which enabled me to widen the scarf itself. I slowly tapered it wider as I worked up from the top of each skull. You make each half separately, then graft them together with kitchener stitch. Finally, the whole thing is felted…which I found to be an extremely lengthy, but easy enough process.
