I've got a Halloween present for you! That's right, it's a free pattern for this ghoulishly gorgeous Granny Skull Square! Last year when I posted the pattern and photo tutorial for the skull motif I had no idea how popular it was going to be. Without any question it is by far the most visited post on my blog. Who knew there were so many fans of macabre crochet! I suppose it shouldn't surprise me that much. In stores there are skulls on everything from little girl clothes to shower curtains and kitchen accessories!
The feedback for the skull motif has been tremendously positive (thanks so much!). Other than a little confusion about making the eyes (work those stitches around the chain - not into it!) the question that I am most frequently asked is, "do you have a square pattern?" Now I can happily answer Yes - I sure do!
If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or any of those other social media worlds, you know that it took a few tries to create a pattern that was good enough for you guys. I feel pretty confident that this one will do the trick. I wanted to make sure it was a universal size that will work with traditional granny squares. That way you can have more options for mixing and matching your designs.
So there you have it! Just click on the button below for a downloadable PDF. The pattern will also be available (for free!) on Ravelry and I'll include a link in my sidebar. If you have any questions or something about the pattern is confusing, please let me know. I did the editing myself and mistakes are certainly possible!
I hope that you enjoy the Granny Skull. I'd love to see your finished squares. Please feel free to share them on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram (I'm RobinBrz). You can also use the hashtags #crochetskull, #crochetnirvana, #robinbrz.
Be Blessed and Stitch & Read with Love!
