patterns with skulls, bones or skeletons
My freinds and i are slightly obsessed by bones (we're palaeopathologists) and i would like to try some colourwork.

any patterns you know of which combine the two?

I looked for patterns, too, so I could add an extra surprise to socks for my son. This is like the second stranded colorwork I've done and learned that doing it in the round on DPNS is really much harder to keep from getting tight. A hat I worked on was fine till I had to switch to DPNs....
