The Name

Who Needs Love (Like That)? by Erasure

Random selection from my music library.

The Slouch Skully

Dimensions: 11.5-inch (D) x 12-inch (H)

The Pattern

Pattern: Modified Pokemon Slouch Beanie by Black Cat Crochet

Modifications: four rows of half double crochet and 10 rows of single crochet converted to double crochet + one row of single crochet. As such, the skully does not achieve the 14-inch height of the previous one, crocheted in more accurate aran yarn weights. This have confirms that needed height and the stitch pattern.

The Yarn

Unknown Red
Color: Merlot*; Content: Unknown; Weight: 4, Worsted**

Unknown Natural
Color: Vanilla*; Content: Unknown; Weight: 4, Worsted**

Unknown White
Color: Ice*; Content: Unknown; Weight: 4, Worsted**

All yarns are presumed acrylic, having performed not burn test.

Unfortunately, the white yarn I used is more likely a DK weight. I seem to remember it being Cascade 220 superwash, and for some reason my mind wants to keep labeling it as worsted. Well, not it’s gone! You will notice in pictures how the white portion really starts to separate and I am attributing that to the lighter weight yarn.
