This is one of the first things I have made (that wasnt knit flat) that I didn't use a pile of flesh for.  Well, I sorta made my own pile of flesh but I pretty much just knit until I was happy with it.  Anyways, I'm pretty proud of it even though it is just a simple brain protector.

I used Cascade yarn in black (substitute for something of similar weight if ya want)
Set of 5 US Size 3 dpns
US Size 10  16 circular

With two size 3 dpns cast on 86 sts (I used two needles so that it was a looser cast on.  It seems to have worked nicely).  Split cast on stitches between 4 needles.  Join work in 1x1 (K1,P1) ribbing for 6 rounds.

Next round:  Switch to size 10 circular and knit
Next round:  Work stitch as follows
   Round 1:  *yo, p2tog* to end of round
   Round 2:  knit to end of round
   Round 3:  knit to end of round

Work the stitch until brain protector measures 7-8 inches (including ribbing)

Next round:  k2tog to end
Next round:  k2tog to end

Cut yarn leaving 10-15 tail and thread through remaining sts to close hole.  Weave in ends.

Thanks for all the kind words!  Um, I don't know what the stitch is called or if it even has a name.  I just started knitting and thats what came out.  Here's what I did for the stitch:

R1: *yo, p2tog* to end of round
R2: knit to end of round
R3: knit to end of round
rep. 1-3

I'll write up a pile of flesh for the brain protector today and post it.

I eat this brain protector! I wonder if it could be modified, though? See, the whole point of circular knitting, for me, is that I don't have to do any purl stitches. Because I hate doing them. I wonder if you could do this pile of flesh as a yo, k2tog stitch, and then turn it inside out? Would that be the same thing? What do you all think?

She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
