After doing more searching on Ravelry, I found some other great skull hats. After all, I still owed my husband a skull hat. I decided on Gayle Vicker’s Riley’s Skully Hat. The skull pattern was not exactly what I wanted, so I used Ravelry user Weeta’s instead.
The pattern is great. The changing colors, not so great. For a fourth project, I think it turned out rather well. To give away as gifts, I’m going to need to spend time with some real pros to work some kinks out.
I worked the pattern on size 8 DPN’s using Simply Soft yarn. It’s probably not the warmest hat for winter, but it is soft!
