Knitty is pleased to offer this excerpt from the recent release Nicky Epstein’s Signature Scarves.

I was allowed to choose a pattern to share with Knitty readers from the book and this one seemed just the thing. I’m not sure that when you think Nicky Epstein you think “ooh, skulls!” But having met her, I can tell you that Nicky is full of surprises.

This scarf has an extra feature -- a set of i-cord ties to make it more vest-like, if you’re so inclined. Both regular and double-pointed needles (2) are needed.

I can’t help but mention that Nicky’s skull motif also reminds me rather a lot of Devo and their stacked pyramid hats. According to, those hats are called energy domes, and I think energy domes are due for a comeback.
