Irish Crochet Sugar Skull

The beautiful sugar skulls used by the Latin community to celebrate Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) are part of the celebration that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

This is my 1st serious attempt of Irish Crochet thus, Irish crochet meets Day of the Dead. I sketched my idea on black foam board. Then used various motifs and a lot of technical help from sheruknitting on Youtube. I’m pretty pleased.

This type of art is probably quite subjective. You either love or not so much.
