FO Skull Illusion Scarf
This is my first illusion scarf, I used the following skull pattern:

Although I have already knitted two scarves, they were very simplistic and I can officially count this as my very first official knitted item.

This was for my sister out west, who loves all things skull and bones

Pretty much followed the pattern. Did two skulls, space for the neck, then two skulls upside down so that they would all be proper orientation.

Lesson learned for this project: if you care about the project you're making, spend whatever you can on quality yarn. Its worth it for the time put in. I am new to knitting, I just bought whatever I found. Its nice, but could have been a lot better.

Still very happy with it. Hope the gift is well receievd.

I have to try this pattern it looks ace! did you follow the chart or the written instructions? I have never used a chart before but i think in this case it might be simpler to use than the writtn script.

WAY COOL!! You did an awesome job! Quality yarn is always best to invest in. I like to use cheaper yarn for practice.

That's great! My DD2 saw it and wants one now!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
