This KnotYourselfOut crochet blanket pattern is named: REVERSIBLE CROCHET SKULL BLANKET

Aren't these colorful, smiling skulls adorable? I designed this crocheted skull blanket with my four year old son in mind. I wanted him to have a warm and playful blanket for his wagon rides on the busy sidewalks of Toronto. He absolutely loves his skull blanket.

This crochet skull blanket would also be great for a little girl (in the same vibrant colors, or using more traditional ones). And, it didn’t take me long to realize that this design would also be very suitable for adults (as a throw), adding color to any room in the house (the finished skull blanket measures approx. 40" wide and 51" long). And, I should probably mention that it makes for a very festive crochet Halloween blanket, too!

As a crocheter, you were likely drawn to this blanket because of the clarity of the skulls, the use of multiple colors, and the interesting reversible imaging. You recognize that these effects are not easy to achieve in crochet -- especially all together in one project -- but this skull blanket is actually quite easy to make. It utilizes a very simple technique I developed. This technique eliminates multiple ends (that need to be sewn in) and carrying multiple strands of yarn. It also gives you clearer images that are identical (in opposing colors) on both sides of your work! I hope you will give it a try. I really had so much fun designing and crocheting this blanket.

This pattern has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. I am confident it will make for a happy crochet experience.

I am available to answer questions, should you have any.

Thank you!

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.

It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.

As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).

It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).

When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!

Home is now Toronto in Canada.

Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
