Lost Souls Skull Scarf Crochet Pattern

Here is a lovely, somewhat scary Halloween crochet skull shawl. The shawl can be adjusted to any size needed, and works well both in a light tonation and a dark tonation, as shown. Its tesselated finish gives the individual skulls some ethereal beauty and the lacy finish will work well with a dark or red-toned top or dress. I very much like this project, because it is fanciful and attractive, while at the same time not overly sweet or cute.

    None of the links go to this pattern. They go to the triangle shawl, not a scarf.

    1. Please find the sentence ‘For more details about photo project go >here<' and you will find there details about scarf from the photo.
