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

Tentacles:
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.
1=row
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!
