Here is the link to the chart for the Pigtail Pirate Beanie, which also will live on my right hand nav bar under pattern mods and tools.
As mentioned before, the hat construction is based on the We Call Them Pirates hat by Adrian over at hello yarn, so use her directions to knit the hat, and my chart for the charting.
You're going to have some heck-a-long floats in this particular pattern if you knit as charted, so I suggest weaving as you go. I personally am a fan of the Philosopher's Wool two handed fair isle technique. I can't find an explanation online, but it's in the book "Fair Isle Sweaters Simplified" by Ann Bourgeois from Philosopher's Wool.
For my preschooler, I omitted one row of skulls for sizing, so two instead of the three in the chart.
If anyone makes one, let me know -- I'd love to see it!
