If you are new to color knitting, please see the FAQ about this pattern for help
Remember this guy? Well I've gotten quite a few requests for the pattern. Hopefully yours will look better than mine. But the theory is if you follow these basic directions, you'll be able to have a rebellious dishrag of yer very own.
The link to the Skull chart I used to make this pattern can be found here (I used the large one).
Please let me know if you find any errors in the pattern as I am remembering it in retrospect and may have gotten something wrong.
