Baby skull hat

Pattern:  baby skull (and crossbones) cap by Pippi Oviatt
Yarn: Patons Big Baby 8 ply wool
Needles: I used 4mm needles 40cm circular needles

The first try with the pattern, I bring the contrasting color hanging while I knit the rest of the round, then when I get back to the pattern in the next round, I bring the contrasting color back a cross the work and knit the pattern.  With this method i found it really messy with the finish product and it didn't look nice at all.
The second try I tie knots when I change color yarn, and I found this method faster and it looked alot nicer than the first try.
