I want to thank http://www.geocities.com/kdpammi/JackSparrowSocks.pdf for the GREAT skull and crossbones graph that I used for these socks.
I have looked high and low for a good skull graph--most look silly. These socks are for my husband (you know--Boring Sock Lover #1). He has officially declared me a genius, and that these are his all-time favorite socks! (I am having a hard time convincing him to take them off long enough to wash them).
I used KnitPicks Bare (70% merino, 30% silk) for the skull design and some black fingering weight wool that has haunted my stash for I don't know how long for the main color. I used my own basic sock pattern.
