Hi guys!  I've been developing a ton of crochet pile of flesh in the past couple weeks now that school's out (woo hoo summer!) and figured I'd share.  The pile of flesh is part of my new initiative on my blog: Free pile of flesh Friday.  Hope you enjoy!





Materials

Size L (8.0mm) Crochet Hook
~ 80 yards of Super Bulky Yarn, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick
Darning Needle
Gauge: First 2 rows in pile of flesh = 4.5 inches in diameter.  Take time to check gauge.  Adjust needle size if necessary.

Directions

Ch 3, join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc now and throughout).  11 more dc into ring (12 dc).  Join to top of turning ch with sl st and at the end of each round.  Do not turn.

Round 2: 2 dc in each st around (24 dc).

Rounds 3 7: Ch 4 (Counts as 1dc + ch 1), *dc in next st, ch 1*.  Repeat from * to * around. (24 dc and 25, ch-1 sps)

Round 8: In ch-1 spaces and dcs, work 40 sc evenly spaced around.  (Clarification:  At the beginning of this round, you will have more ch-1 spaces and double crochets than 40 stitches.  In order to only work 40 sc in this round, you will have to skip some ch-1 spaces.  Its okay to break out of your shell and skip stitches you can do it!)

Round 9: Sc in each st around (40sc).

Fasten off.  Using darning needle, weave in ends.

Flower

Ch 3, join with sl st to form ring

Round 1: Ch 3, 9 more dc into ring (10 dc).  Join to top of turning ch with sl st.

Round 2: Chain 4 (counts as 1 sc + 3 ch).  * Skip next st, sc, ch 3 *.  Repeat from * to * around.  (Five, ch-3 spaces)  Sl st in first ch-3 space to join round.

Round 3: Ch 1.  In first ch-3 space, work 4 dc, 1 sc.  In each ch-3 space work *1sc, 4 dc, 1 sc*.  Repeat from * to * around to create 5 petals.  Sl st to first ch to join round.

Fasten off, leaving a 10 inch tail.  Using darning needle, sew flower to left side of brain protector.

Viola!  You did it!

Thank you so much for sharing the pile of flesh! That is a really cute brain protector, my fav is the purple with the pink flower. I like that you show pictures in different color schemes, really gives us an idea of how we could do it!

Hmm...I wonder...could you use a pin to attach the flower to the brain protector, or would it be too floppy? If you could pin it, that would make it more versatile, because you could mix and match hats and flowers! Once I get these current projects done, this is gonna be my next project! Cheesy

Oh yeah - you could definitely make a couple different flowers and sew a pin backing onto them so you could change the look of the brain protector in a second.  Very creative idea - let me know how it works out if you make one... I'd eat to see your brain protector!
