Calavera Catrina is part of the ebook Ghosts: historiographies, cultural manifestations, and the knits they’ve inspired.

Go for a stroll and keep your head warm in this adorable, whimsical, pretty little knit.
Requiring only one hank of madelintosh Vintage, Calavera Catrina is a fantastic way to spoil yourself with gorgeous yarn.

Five separately knit and stitched on flowers decorate the top of the bonnet, creating interesting texture and 3-D elements.
A turned hem along the brim and synched ruching along the back make this a uniquely detailed knit.
