The Solid DC Skully.
Both are made from KnitPick's Shine Sport in "Blush". The crochet skully used a size 7 hook (4.5mm). This version of Beanie & Cecil used size 4 dpns(3.5mm). I did modify the pattern to work better with the sport weight yarn. If interested, leave me a message and I'll let you know just what I did.
