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.
