Crochet Granny Skull Pattern
Welcome my little lovelies!
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.
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me!
Be Blessed and Stitch & Read with Love!

I've tried to download both PDF's (I'm using the Pinterest app on my Android phone) and neither downloaded. Is there a known problem with the links? I really want to try this, please let me know. Thank you.
1/17/2016 11:12:39 am
Lisa, both links work for me on my computer. I know sometimes links get fussy on phones or tablets. Have you tried the ravelry link too? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/skulls ....I would be happy to email it to you ....
1/20/2017 12:07:55 am

What does it mean to crochet around the chain, not in it? Thanks!
3/6/2017 05:56:52 pm
Don't insert your hook through the chain stitch...crochet around the chain.
1/14/2017 12:44:37 am
I can't wait to try this pattern
1/14/2017 01:11:46 pm
Do you have a pattern for a Raiders logo?
2/5/2017 01:54:33 am
I would love a video also! Please!
2/15/2017 01:21:26 pm
Could you please do a video, or explain things in more detail? I'm having trouble just starting it. When you say "work 18 SC around the first loop" how do I evenly distribute those SC?
5/13/2017 12:43:19 am
After you have the two loops making the figure 8. You do 18 dc around each loop. So you aren't working into the chains, you are working around it.

love this. Was trying to figure out how to use the motif to make a couple rugs for our bathroom which we are redoing in skull theme and now with the granny square around it I can make rugs. Thanks so much for this.
8/14/2017 12:50:25 pm

I have a friend who wants a blanket made of these. I love your pattern, but how do you join the together? I'm an advanced crocheter, but a novice blanket maker. Thanks in advance!
11/5/2017 11:11:57 am
I madebthis for my niece and she loved it. Trying to add a pic of the finished product but haven't been able to. Easy pattern and fun to make!!
11/14/2017 01:14:23 pm
I was wondering if you used the yarn that was specified or did you use something else? I am wondering about 4ply yarn.
1/14/2018 07:38:45 am

4/20/2018 11:17:26 am
I am not understanding how you connect the teeth after you make the first tr chain
5/4/2020 12:54:18 am
I was wanting to know how much yarn it took to make the skull and granny square around it. My brother and sister in law want this made into a king Afghan.

I love this pattern so much and making a blanket with it for quite some time now. But the only problem is I'm having is trying to get the finished square to lay flat after I join them together. Any advice?
