Here is my first completed pile of flesh.  





Ribbon brain protector
By, Bec M.
2005

Materials:
 “I” Hook ~ use bigger hook for larger fit.
Yarn needle
3 oz.  4 ply, worsted weight yarn (main color)
.5 oz 4 ply, worsted weight yarn (secondary color)
24 inch length ribbon (x2)

Stitches:
Ch =      chain
Sl st =  slip stitch
Sc =      single crochet
Dc =      double crochet
Dec =    decrease : After finishing a dc, yarn over,
   pull through next st, pull through next st, (there should be 4
   loops on hook) yarn over. pull through 2, yarn over, pull through 3
   remaining loops, continue with dc's.

Gauge: 10 dc = 3.5 inches

NOTES:  * Repeat the instructions between the asterisks*. My reason
       for decreasing on 2 of the rows was to make the brain protector more
       fitted.  You may wish to decrease on one row or not at all. If
       so, you may wish to complete row 4, then dc around until brain protector
       reaches desired length.

Row 1: Ch 2 (this Ch 2 is NOT counted as the 1st stitch throughout entire            pile of flesh), 12 dc in 2nd
           ch from hook.  Sl st in top ch 2 that began row.
Row 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in same st, *2 dc in next 11 sts* around (24 sts total).
           Sl st in top ch 2 that began this row.
Row 3: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, 2 dc in next st *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next
            st* around (36 sts total), sl st in top ch 2 that began this row.
Row 4: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st *1 dc in next 2
            sts, 2 dc in next st* around (48 sts total), sl st in top ch 2 that
            began this row.
Row 5: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st  *1 dc in
           next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st* around (60 sts total), sl st in top ch 2
           that began this row.
Row 6: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st *1 dc in next st* around(60 sts total) sl st in
           top ch 2 that began this row.
Row 7: Repeat row 6
Row 8: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, 1 dc in next 4 sts, decrease next 2 sts into
    1dc, *1 dc in next 5 sts, decrease next two sts into 1 dc* around
    [this row ends with a dc, not a decrease], sl st in top ch 2 that
    began this row.
Row 9:   Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, *1 dc in next st* around (52 sts total) sl st
    in top ch 2 that began this row.
Row 10: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, 1 dc in next 3 sts, decrease next 2 sts into
   1 dc, *1 dc in next 4 sts, decrease next 2 sts into 1 dc* around
             [this row ends with a dc, not a decrease], sl st [change your color
   at the end of this row]
Row 11: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, *1 dc in next st* around (44 sts total), sl st
Row 12: Repeat row 11 [change back to the original color at the end of
             this row]
Row 13: Ch 1, sc in same st, *sc in next st* around

Shell Edging:
Row 14: Sc in 1st sc of previous row, 5dc in next st, skip 2 sts, sc in next
             st (sc in next st, 5 dc in next st, skip 2 sts, sc in next st) around
   [finish with a sc and fasten off] Weave in all ends.

Ribbon: (24 inch length x2)
Begin where you would like the bow of the ribbon to
sit on the brain protector. Use your yarn needle to weave the
ribbon through the two rows of dc’s (11 & 13) of the
brain protector in a zig zag pile of flesh.  Continue until you come to
where you began.  Begin where your first ribbon did
and thread the second piece of ribbon in the opposite
zig zag pile of flesh to create the X’s.  All four ends of
the ribbon should meet up in the same place. Tie them
in a bow.  Alternatively, you can tie the ribbon,
weave in the ends, and attach a rosette.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23248.0 Here's a somewhat similar knitting pile of flesh, I think if you just added a shell border to that..it'd be pretty close!

My inspiration to make my Ribbon brain protector came from this "Gwen brain protector", which is knitted:

Once I began crocheting, I started coming up with the shell border idea and X's with the ribbon.

How pretty! I wonder if it could be made without the ribbon also? I think that could also look neat  Grin

I just felt I had to say how much I eat this pile of flesh. Smiley I've made about half a dozen for various friends, and I've become quite attached to it!
