Arrr, judgin' by the way ye all like pirate designs for International Talk Like a Pirate Day on 19th September, I've come up with this larger skull and crossbones motif based on Richard Worley's flag.

The design area is 36 stitches by 36 rows. Knitted using DK yarn on 4mm needles at 22 stitches and 28 rows over 4"/10cms, this will produce a finished image approximately 6.5" (16.5cms) wide by 5" (12.5cms) high, which I think is a useful size. This is only a guide, you could use any weight of yarn/gauge you like to suit your particular application.

Anyone wanting my Pirate Hat Egg Cosy design, this is located at:

Have fun with yer yaarrrn me hearties, arrr!

He might make a good cushion cover in a chunky yarn.

Have fun!

Thanks for the pirate cosy pattern.
It looks just right for my grandson's bear - he had asked me to make a pirate hat for it, and now you've made it easy!

OUCH! How very painful and frustrating. I hope the surgery goes well and you make a full recovery.

Thank you.
I have had it in both wrists for 8 months. I had to wait to get Medicare this August to have medical coverage as I had lost my job...so I hope to have surgery soon.
Now it will be one at a time, with healing time for each before I can knit again.
Though there is _slight improvement just with the passing of time, and I snuk in a very teeny bit of knitting last night. Started a little Love Bug that was posted here recently. I _can't _bear not knitting...

You must have been reading my mind. Didn't even have a chance to comment on the darling egg cozy - as I was thinking to myself - how to make it a little bigger. Have a sock pattern with skull and crossbones but wanted to add wristlettes or end of scarf design and needed a little bigger... Now I don't have to do the work. Thank you kind sir.

My pleasure! Richard Worley's flag is just the right proportions to go on all kinds of things, so I got out the graph paper and doodled a bit. I'm looking forward to seeing the pics.

I have attached a picture of my double knit skull scarf. The pattern doesn't call for turning the skulls half way through but if you don't - they will be upside down. An adventure in knitting to say the least - using a chart top down! PM me for the pattern -it is Art Yarns and I am not sure where I got it.
