Skull beanie

First post! Yay! Please check out the tabs above to get the back story on this blog, but let’s jump right in and start with a crochet project!

Skull Beanie

This is one of the few pieces that I can claim is mostly my design (which means that I am going to ask nicely that you don’t publish it without my permission. Not that I know anyone working on a crochet book, but still). This is the first example of this hat that I have made, and this is the first time that I’ve written out any pattern– in other words, it’s not perfect. But it is still super cool! I made this before my Grandma died with yarn in my own stash, unlike the other works that I am going to post on here, but I thought it would be a nice way to start out the blog.
