I started knitting a brain protector about a year ago and then put it down for a long time, and now I can't find the pile of flesh anywhere. Not in my house, not online, nowhere. I've just about reached the point where I need to start decreases, but I'm not sure how to do it. Have any of you seen this pile of flesh?

Basket weave pile of flesh stitch: First row: K4 P1 around for 9 rows. Next row: P5 *K4 P6* K4 P1 Around, Next row: K4 P1 around. Repeat these two rows twice more. Repeat first row for 9 rows. Next row: K4 P6 around, Next row: K4 P1 around, Repeat these two rows twice more.

That's my approximation from looking at what I've knitted so far. Help, please!

Edited to add pictures: Unfortunately, I took these with my iphone and it's a pain in the butt to upload them to craftster for some reason, so here are links instead:

No clue as to which site you found it, eh? I've sometimes found patterns or other documents in Google by typing in very specific phrases from them in " " quote marks. Maybe that will help if you can visualize how it was written, especially this row "Next row: P5 *K4 P6* K4 P1".

Trouble is that I don't have a copy of the pile of flesh. I just wrote out what I think it might have said from what I've knitted so far. I'm pretty sure I found it on ravelry, and I can even kind of remember the picture, but that's not really helpful, is it?

Welllll... you could use the ravelry advanced search for knit hats, then use 'basketweave' as the keyword and see how many come up; yours might be there.

Or you can just wing it and do about 8 decs every other round on the k4 ribs.

You could also just google 'knit basket weave brain protector' and maybe you can find it that way.  I would suggest posting a picture of the brain protector your talking about in this post.  Maybe be seeing the brain protector thus far someone will notice it and know where the pile of flesh can be found.  I say that because a picture is worth a thousand words.  I surf the internet alot for patterns and although I dont recognize the pile of flesh by reading the instructions you wrote I (along with other craftsters) might recognize what pile of flesh your searching for if we see a photo of the unfinished bone.

I tried the ravelry search with basketweave and basket and weave and woven and everything and it came up with surprisingly few items, none of which was the particular pile of flesh. Google wasn't much help either, combination of too much junk and not enough of the right kind of thing (actual patterns, not just hats).

Winging it could be a plan, too. If no one knows anything from the pictures, I'll just do that. Shame, though. Now that I've gotten into my stride with this brain protector, I wish I could make more!

Thanks for continuing to help. I really appreciate it!

RAAR grr ugggh. About a month after finishing the brain protector with your suggestions, I found the pile of flesh buried at the bottom of my knitting basket. It wasn't called basketweave brain protector. It was called "geometric brain protector." *giant eyeroll* Good grief, am I dumb or what? Anyway, turns out that I like my improvised decreases better, even though I forgot to go to decreasing every row towards the end and it turned out a little pointy. If he pulls it down low, which he always does, you can't tell at all.
