You know I'm on an early roll with the Halloween-themed crochet and knitwear this year. Speaking of which, I pattern-tested the web this weekend and will write the pattern up today or tomorrow. Stay tuned...
Today however, I'm showing y'all a scarf that I originally designed for Uncommon Threads, but decided to pull it from the episode, Creepy Crochet, (which will tape this Friday) as their format has changed and this thingie ended up being waaay too complex. So, without further ado take a looksee at the latest and greatest in neck attire, Dem Bones!
Notice the "marrow" that allows the bones to "break" around your neck??? And how 'bout them jagged edges???
Yep, your Lady of the Linoleum is mired in detail (even if it causes me permanent paralysis of the hand). Worked entirely in cotton (Lamb's Pride Cotton Fleece for the bones and Reynolds Saucy for the marrow) and an F hook, this baby is the perfect accessory for the dark evenings of October!
Now, if I hear from you guys that this is a must make for the Halloween Season, I will write it up as I've already pattern-tested the, um, bone-er. I'm warning you though, this Project Wrongway accessory is a classic example of a PITA (pain in the...err...rear) if there ever was one. So, BEWARE. Don't tell me I didn't warn you as you whittle away your evenings with skeins of cotton, hook and myriad curse words for this obtuse pattern in tow.
Lots more ghoulish delights coming your way soon! Currently, I am working on another eyeballed creation, a bloody implement scarf (part of a series I'm calling Slasher Film Chic...I know twisted...whatever) and will soon start on an accessory inspired by Freddy Krueger (also part of Slasher Film Chic)!
Can you tell I grew up in the 80's?
