[BONUS] Cross-Stitch Skull In-Use

Denise Niemann from Katy TX used the Cross-Stitch Skull pattern to crochet this skull. I love seeing someone take a pattern for one type of fiber art for a different type of fiber art. Cross-stitch is done using a grid pattern. Some types of crochet and knit use the same type of grid, so those patterns can cross over, depending on how they are designed. Got to admit, I might try using filet crochet (my favorite) to make this image too. In case you are curious, Denise's piece looks like intarsia crochet, which is difficult and creates these impressive results.
