skully warmers

after finishing the skullycap i was riding high on my newfound abilities with intarsia. so i embarked upon another version of the wristwarmers.

this is the same pattern used earlier, but near the top i added a black patch with the white skull pattern. now, what makes these super awesome, is that they are reversible. i added two thumbholes so the skull can be on either side.

the black patch is two purled columns, 11 knit columns, and two purled columns. i picked up an extra stitch in the middle because the pattern had an odd number of columns, and stitched it back in at the top. also, i carried the white stitched through when knitting the white stripes, and did a simpler intarsia bit on the black stripe. there is a mess of sloppy end tying, because i did not have the patience to figure out how to knit in all the end stitches.

yeah, that is kind of sloppy. which is why it is nice to have a wrong side on these guys. but it's worth it. let's get a closeup of the sexy skull.
