I am absolutely obsessed with anything that has a skull on it, and with crochet, so when I stumbled across an awesome skull granny square pattern on Pinterest I just had to give it a go!
The pattern is by Crochet Nirvana and it’s amazing.

So easy to follow and perfect for people like me who get bored doing the same thing over and over again as you can work it in stages. I make a few skulls then turn a few into squares then weave in some ends then join some squares together, obviously you could just make one at a time from start to finish but I can’t work that way!
I made a baby blanket with the finished squares, it’s 4 x 4 squares made with a 4mm hook and acrylic DK yarn. I know a few people have asked about the yarn I used and it was mainly Stylecraft Special DK.
I also made a 3 x 4 sized one which I attached to a wooden dowel and hung at one of my upstairs windows, it’s just a small one on my landing so works perfectly.
I really wish I had the patience to make a huge super king size bed throw but I just struggle with blankets, I’ve never actually made a full size one!
I made the skull using white yarn then used different colours to go around the outside and the first 3 rounds of the square. Then I went around each one using black to make it easier to join them all together. I love the look of the bright colours against the black and white. It’s so vibrant.

Is the skull with the pom poms (on a dowel rod) a C2C pattern?
Hi, yes it is x

Hi, I used Stylecraft Special DK, can’t remember the exact colours though. Thanks, Jess
