I'm calling him Mr. Brain Slug. Mostly because I keep misreading it as Mr. Brian Slug. Hehehe.

Anyway here's the cute little guy! He's about the size of a grapefruit and is a very pleasant "moss" green.

Here's the pattern which can also be found at http://mostlynerdycrochet.blogspot.com/2011/04/april-and-brain-slug.html

Magic circle with 6 sc. Inc to 12
Inc, sc, inc, sc etc for 1 row
inc, 2 sc, inc, 2 sc for 2 rows
inc after every 5th sc for 1 row
inc after every 10th sc for 1 row
inc after every 20th sc for 2 rows
then do about 12-15 = rows
dec every 4th stitch for 2 rows, then every 3rd for 1 row, every 2nd... you get the idea. Stuff and finish closing.
sl st back to the edge

sc, dc,tc,tc,dc, 4 sc, dc,tc,tc,tc,dc,dc,sc....just make a wavy base using single crochet, double crochet, and triple crochets. Vary and repeat until you've made one round.
sc in the "low" spots (close to the body) and dc on the ends of the tentacles for one row. Just to give a more pronounced wave.
sl st back at the beginning and you're done! Oh, wait. No you're not.
Antenna: make two
ch 16, 3 dc in 2nd ch from hook. sl st back to end of chain. Attach to body.
Don't forget to cut out an eye and pupil and sew them on. I used felt.

Sorry for all the short hand. Email me at mostlynerdycrochet@gmail.com if you have any problems Smiley

Happy April and thanks for looking!

I envision my own little army of Brain Slugs being sent forth soon. . .

Boycott haters.
