Pattern Description:

True story: I had some extra black and white yarn sitting in my stash. It was mid October and I was ready for Halloween. I have a lot (over 30) of nieces and nephews. I wanted to make something cool for them to wear that time of year. So… I designed this skull cap for my nephew Korbin. Well, all the other kids wanted one as well. That fall I knitted up over 40 skull caps for my nieces, nephews, their children and a few of our friends. It is not only fun to knit up, but fun to wear as well.

Enjoy ~
