ARRG Surrender The Booty but only if it is yarn


So my favorite pattern is argyle and its been shown that I like skulls and hot pink. I have been looking for an argyle crochet pattern for awhile. I found this chart as a knitted guide for socks. I took this, played around a little bit with the pattern and adapted it for crochet and used the knitting instructions as a guide. It mad a large block 70 x 36 stitches. I used scrap yarn (worsted weight Caron Simply Soft) and a size K hook. I don't know what I will do with this besides hang it as a banner to by awesome crocheting ability. This was my first time carrying yarn and changing colors so it is not perfect but I think it is kick ass and perfect for me. I've told by knitter roommates and they think it matches me perfectly.

here is where I found the original pattern
