Stevie's Dennis
AKA Savage Skull

I started the design for this traditional punk sweater with skull motif about 7 yrs ago....but knitting for someone who was six foot and four inches made me put it on hold. However, it was a quick and easy knit.

Rather than just make a baggy old sweater with dropped shoulders and not much shaping, I wanted to make sure that this was a proper 'designer' sweater, even if it was punk.

In order to make it fit well and have a sleek silhouette it has:

  • Set in and fitted sleeves knittef from the top down
  • Short row shaping for top of sleeve and shaped for wide and long silhouette
  • Unique skulls chart designed by me in a tribal style
  • Extra long body and narrow silhouette so it is slimming even with horizontal stripes
  • Narrow cuffs, welt and neck ribbing
  • Slightly scooped round neck, wide and loose but well fitting. Enough neck to show off neck jewellery
  • Man sized (even for giants of over 6 foot 2!)

I will be writing up the pattern for this sweater and taking proper photos, and the pattern will be for unisex sizes from Uni XS-XXXL and The range can be wide.

This would look equally cool knitted in charcoal grey, with luminous yellow or green skull and constrast cuff, welt and ribbed neck.
