Very cool!

Be cautious that Hot Topic doesn't get ahold of it and turn it into a mass produced disaster.

Hope your 12 year old rocker wears it proudly.

Oh wow. That is too cool. I know a 35-year old guy who'd really like it too. Is it your own design? Would you mind sharing?

Yeah, pretty much. I modified a skull and crossbones chart that someone had posted a link to in the patterns section. I can send you that chart if you'd like. I don't have an actual pattern to send. I just used the chart for the ends and stripes through the middle. I had just tried my hand at double knitting a couple days before I saw the skull, so when I did see it, I thought it was a great pattern to double knit. Especially with October coming up.

It sounds like I should be able to find the chart, or a chart if not the same one. I've never tried double-knitting before, but it's definitely on my want-to-learn list. I bet it's extra warm and toasty!

Very cool! It would be neat in glow-in-the-dark yarn too!

I was thinking the same thing!

I just looked at Amy's double-knitting video, and it really didn't look too bad (well, at least the part where she's holding both strands in her left hand since I'm conti). I think I can, I think I can...
