May I prevail upon you for a pattern? Or at least some basic dimensions and the stitches you used? (snip)
I didn't really use one...I just started crocheting a circle, in single crochet, and increasing each round, until it got big enough to fit my brother's massive head. then just crocheted in the round, the same # of rows until it was "tall" enough. I can't remember any specifics
If you need a pattern though, something like this http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/cpatt01.htm
would probably work, just a plain beanie. I just added the face with yarn after I was done.
Can you at least tell me what yarn it is? I think that color is just about as close to meatwad colored as can be. And it looks like it might actually be warm. Is it? Has your brother given you any reviewing of real world use? I'm curious. Thanks again for posting it and telling me how you did it!
