A Year of Machine Knit Pillows - October

Happy Halloween!
This skull has been on my "to do" list for too long.

If you are lucky enough to have an intarsia carriage, it's a pretty straightforward project. I used my LK-150 and have no carriage, so I used what I call a "hybrid" knitting method.
For the fiddly detail areas like the bones and teeth, I hand knit each stitch (on the machine) the bone color yarn, put those needles in hold and then knit the black background with the carriage. Because this is a pillow, I didn't worry about long floats.


The DAK files and stitch charts for both the boy and girl skull will be available as a Weekend Project soon ... stay tuned!

Cute! I love that you used "bone" yarn.
