Marvel’s Punisher Skull Gloves

As a person with a chronic illness, I spend a lot of time watching Netflix, especially the Marvel shows such as Daredevil and The Punisher. A few months ago, I decided to learn the art of tapestry crochet using probably the most complicated design to do so. I worked these in the round after finding that flat tapestry crochet warped the design somewhat (no-one want a wonky skull). The first time, I made them too big as I forgot that I have child-sized hands and had to unravel hours of hard work. I’m quite happy with how these turned out.

Fabric for lining (optional)


I don’t have a full pattern for these gloves as I made them by trial and error.

Chain enough stitches to go around your wrist. Join ends to make a circle (beware of twisting). Work in the round with black yarn for a few rows. Work pattern from chart (below) in black and white yarn. Scroll down for an introductory video on tapestry crochet by All Tapestry Crochet. Remember to leave a hole for your thumb. Finish the edges with a rib stitch.

To size up, use a thicker yarn or larger hook size. You can also use this chart for things other than gloves.
