nice and simple, great.

May be nice time you can put some electric sensor, so it will really have music when you press those "keys".

Brilliant. I want to make one. Or two, three. Send them off to piano playing cousins. Muahaha. Good job.

You should make a xylophone one! Dunno how that'd work though....

So I'm pretty sure I need to learn to crochet now so I can make sixteen of these for myself and my piano-playing friends.
You're awsesome!

Here's a link to a piano keyboard crochet graph (originally posted on Crochetville). I've got it bookmarked to crochet as a gift for my sister, who plays constantly.

tutorial:
use 2 skeins at the same time and a 5.5mm hook
(gauge 15 sc = 7")

ROW 1: White yarn, Chain 16 (last chain counts as 1st SC in next row)
ROW 2: SC in each chain across (15 SC)
ROW 3: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 14
ROW 4: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 4, change color, SC in each SC x 10
ROW 5: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 9, change color, SC in each SC x 5
ROW 6: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 14, change color
ROW 7: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 9, change color, SC in each SC x 5
ROW 8: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 4, change color, SC in each SC x 10, change color
ROW 9-11: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 14
ROW 12: Chain 1, SC in each SC x 14, change color
ROW 13-15: Repeat rows 7-9
ROW 16-21: Repeat rows 4-9
ROW 22: Repeat rows 9-10

Repeat from ROW 2 until scarf is of desired length.

When finished, realize you've made a scarf with a million loose ends that need tying off.  Decide that the annoyance of tying off is somehow overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the scarf.  Get a beer.  Start tying off.  Get another beer.  Keep tying off.  Sleep.  Wake up.  Wonder what Freudian significance a dream about crochet has.  Continue tying off...etc..

unless i'm doing something lacy, i just crochet the next row over the loose ends and i never need to weave them in later. when i'm done with the crocheting, i'm done with the project.
