Lost Souls Skull Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern Review
The Lost Souls Skull Shawl by Maryetta Roy has been in my Ravelry queue for quite some time now, but when my brother and his (then) girlfriend got engaged, this one got bumped up to the top. Not everyone would appreciate this shawl as a gift, but my sister-in-law is definitely not everyone, in the best possible way.
For those apprehensive about trying something a little more complicated than you are used to – fear not! The designer included photos to help you stay on track and better understand the pattern. Intermediate to advanced crocheters should have no problem tackling this shawl, under the right circumstances, of course. Printing out the pattern and waiting until the kids are sleeping might be a good idea.
After working a dozen or so rows into this shawl using an “H” hook, I could tell the shawl was a little stiff for my liking, so I did move up to an “I” hook, and am glad I did. I used Caron Simply Soft Party, worsted weight but fairly lofty, so if you are using a more dense yarn, maybe Caron One Pound, you might even want to try it with a “J” hook to achieve a nice drape.
You can find this pattern, as well as add it to your Ravelry queue and favorites here: Lost Souls Skull Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern. Thank you Maryetta for sharing this amazing pattern with us!
