I mentioned my Blankets of the World Series above, there will be more on that in the coming days and weeks. Right now I’m sketching and getting ideas together. I’m excited to be working on this and hope you enjoy my journey.
This pattern is made with mainly simple half double crochet stitches. It’s worked from the bottom up. I used a worsted 4/aran weight yarn and a 5mm hook (Lion Brand Pound of Love) This pullover is ment to be a bit oversized. I give instructions for sizes sm/med, lg/xl, 1x-3x. I also include options for various yarn types ( worsted 3/dk weight, worsted 5 & 6.
I give options to make it with a collar or hood. I also give instructions on making the sleeves longer or shorter. The skulls design is made up of half double crochet, double crochet, single crochet and slip stitches. Its fairly repetitive and fairly easy once you get into a rhythem.
If you purchase the pattern and run into any problems, need help, have suggestions or just want to share pics, please feel free to contact me!

Hello! Its been a crazy few weeks. I’ve been working on this pattern for my “warmness managed” oversized pocket/shawl/wrap,and to say its been an adventure is and under statement.I’ve had tantrums, frogged, recounted, trashed graphs, plain made myself bonkers, but I’m very pleased with the end result.
If you purchase the pattern from my Ravelry use code Warmness and choose a 2nd pattern for free!
I tried to make this pattern as user friendly as possible. I did away with the graph and wrote it all out so it would be easier for everyone to follow along with. Below are some helpful videos that show the technique I used for the color changes, and working the cable stitches.
If you have any questions or issues please feel free to reach out to me.You can pm me through my Facebook page http://facebook.com/simplyme.hu Also please feel free to share pictures of your work on my page.I love to see what people create from my patterns!
This pattern can be made with or without the hood. I used about 3000 yds of Lion Brand Pound of Love( 2 skeins of gray and 1 skein of black) most worsted weight 4 tarns or aran weight will work well. I also used a 6mm crochet hook.
I used 2 different types of cable patterns.One on the pockets and one on the trim. The trim sections are made seperate from the body of the shawl and sewn or crocheted on.
I hope you enjoy my pattern! I can’t wait to see your completed work!
