What kind of yarn to choose for crochet shawls with a skull motif?

Lacy and lightweight, crochet shawls with skull motifs usually require quite a fine weight yarn. Depending on your preferences and the vibe you are going for, we recommend anything between light fingering and double knit. Some say the finer the yarn the more sophisticated the final effect. Why don’t you test that theory?

Are crochet shawls with skull motifs easy enough for beginners?

Some definitely are! You will of course need a bit more experience for the most intricate patterns, but in principle you should be able to learn a skull motif if you are an adventurous beginner. It all depends on your motivation level!

How to choose the right color for a crochet shawl with a skull motif?

The first answer that comes to mind here is obviously black, but do not hesitate to experiment with other colors as well. Deep violets, burgundy, dark green, cream and white shawls will definitely look super classy.
