The hip bone’s connected to the knit stitch in this Skeleton Banner that gives the impression of “Abandon hope (and organs), all ye who enter here.” (Sugar’n Cream)

A great way to practice colorwork and review the human anatomy at once, the constant changes in this easy pattern will ensure you won’t get bored. This pattern also comes with an added bonus: take the skeleton pattern and turn it into a lapghan. You can gift it to your resident medical, kinesiology, or physical anthropology student as a lap-warmer and a study aid!
