Helmet or Cap with Skulls Crochet pattern

The cap is crocheted in the same way as the gauntlets. You can crochet 1 - 3 skulls in one cap.

The pattern is based upon the “lost souls” skull shawl (by Maryetta Roy) and meant to be used with the shawl. There is also a crochet pattern of mittens or gauntlets available on Ravelry.
