FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 66 inches in length before felting. Approximately 60 inches after felting.Materials: Classic Elite Lush [50% Angora, 50% Wool; 124yd/111m per 50g skein]; color: Cream #4416; 2 skeins. 1 setUS #8/5mm needles. Stitch holder or spare needle. Tapestry needle. Sharp scissors.GAUGE: 22 stitches and 24 rows= 4 inches in stockinette stitch before felting.Pattern Note: [Knitty's list of standard abbreviations can be found here] To make the skulls identical, the scarf is knit intwo pieces from the skulls up and then grafted together at the middle. Since I don't like long scarves, I designed a finishedlength of about 60 inches. If you prefer longer scarves or just hate the idea of have left-over yarn, continue knitting eachhalf until close to the end of each skein; just be sure to leave about one yard for grafting the two sides together. If yousubstitute yarns, be careful to check that the yarn you choose felts properly. In some cases, white yarns and other lightcolors may not felt as well (or at all) as dark colors in the same brand.Directions For Skull Scarf~Skull: CO 14 sts. Rows 1-8: Work in stockinette st.

Weave in ends.Begin fulling the scarf by hand until the fabric isuniformly firm and the stitches are only slightlydistinct. I used a dollop of mild soap, lots of rubbing,and alternating immersions in hot and cold water.Once the fabric is firm, use sharp scissors to cut thethreads running across the eye and nose openings oneach skull. If necessary, carefully cut any straggling bits around the openings to even them out. You can
