Pattern: Skeleton Antimacassar by Regina Rioux
Yarn: Department 71 Perle Cotton Size 8 (Fiber Content: 100% Cotton; Yarn Color: [White], Yarn Weight: < 0, 10-Count Crochet Thread)
OMG! This is the official skull antimacassar for a project I was commissioned to crochet. Without even looking at the practice one, I realized my tension was looser on this one, but did not expect such an increase in size. The new one measures approximately 8.5 x 13.5 inches, while the old one measures approximately 7 x 10 inches. I have already emailed my client an image indicating the difference in size. I am pretty sure she will like – as I do because it is more the size of a human head – and have already started on the rib cage.
I only had two balls of crochet thread, but managed to find the exact same yarn online – for sale no less – and purchased 10 balls, as the pattern charts do not indicate how much is needed. I hope I have enough!
