Well here's my problem, I did a Marvin the Martian amigurumi doll and took a bunch of notes on what I was doing, but then I finished him off without writing down what I did then.  I've lost the drive to finish off the pattern but think the world should have it Wink  so if you're interested in finishing it here's what I have done.

I used F hook for everything except fingers and thumbs which I used E hook for.  I hope someone out there will finish this off, he needs the visor for his helmet and the brush on the top of his head.

Thank you for sharing this pattern  Cheesy I want to try and make it for my Dad for Christmas because it's one of his fav charaters... even gave my brother the middle name marvin hahahaha I was just wondering if you remembered how you started the brush on the helmet.... I can try to figure it out but it would be sooooo helpful to know just how to start it Smiley Thank you very much! Oh and I love your new hat  Grin

I don't remember exactly how I started it, but it was a chain that built up to square corners. 

something along the lines of
 
ch 7

sc in second ch from hook then sc 4

3 sc in same ch to turn corner

sc until you get to the end then start inc, sc, inc to keep the corner square.  Only do the increases on the corners to get the rectangle shape, then when it's time to build the height you crochet in the back loops only to make a square turn to build up the bristles.

I hope that helps you get it figured out, and thanks for the compliments Smiley
