Skully the Skull

Skully the Skull Applique

I had a friend of mine ask me to make a skull applique for her, so here it is!

Warning: This pattern may be a bit confusing

Hook: G or H (I used an H because I crochet tightly)
Yarn: Small amount of Worsted Weight

Starting out with making the eye holes...

  • Ch 14
  • sl st in first ch
  • Ch 13
  • sl st in same ch as first sl st (Note: this will look like the number 8)
  • 16 sc in first ch-14 sp
  • 16 sc in second ch-14 sp
  • sl st in first sc made
  • sl st in next 6 sc
Row 1: ch 2 turn, hdc in next 12 sc (13 sts)
Row 2: ch 2 turn, hdcdec in NEXT 2 hdc, hdc 7, hdcdec in next 2 (this includes the ch2)
Row 3: ch 2, turn, hdcdec in NEXT 2 hdc, 4 hdc, hdcdec in last 2 sts, sl st in last st, finish off

Bottom of skull (nose and teeth)

Note: there should be 9 OPEN sc on bottom of each eye hole.

Join yarn with sc in 4th open sc from head
Row 1: sc 4, ch 2, sc 5, ch 1 turn
Row 2: sc in NEXT sc and in next 3 sc, 2sc in ch-2 sp, sc 4, ch 2, turn
Row 3: hdc in NEXT sc, *ch 2, sk next sc, hdc in next, rep from * across ending with hdc
Row 4: ch 1 turn, sc in first hdc from previous row, *sc in ch-2 sp, sc in hdc, rep from * to last st. DO NOT FINISH OFF
Final Step: sc evenly around entire skull made, Finish off, weave in ends.
