After spending time looking for a repeating skull pattern and not finding one i came up with this repeating skull stitch pattern.
I am left handed, so i thought i would give you a written pattern as well as a chart. i found this pattern a lot of fun, and wanted to share this pattern with all of you.
I found my self wanting a sweater right way.
i could see this pattern used in so many ways, i had to share it 🙂
ok now that you see the finished picture lets get to it.

Hook J and worst weight is what i used. I know you will find the yarn and hook that works for you best.
