I'm making a TON of hats for S.P.E.W./HP Craftalong so I'm posting them all here together.  Smiley  I'm just having too much fun!!! Cheesy  lol

I made the hat using the Micah Makes Ear Flap Hat pattern and an H hook.  The eyes are single crocheted circles using a F hook.  The eyes are a black circle sewn onto a white circle sewn onto a green circle sewn to another green circle, stuffed, and then sewn onto the hat.  I sewed the crown on top of the hat before I sewed the eyes on.  (It really IS centered perfectly, it just LOOKS crooked due to the angle of the picture)  I used this pattern www.bobwilson123.pdf BUT I added a layer of double crochet between the single crochet and the shells.  It was just too short without the addition.  The smile was embroidered on with yarn after everything else was sewn on.  Then, of course, I added pompoms to the bottom of the ties.  (And yes, I thought about how I could have made the eyes from pompoms.  lol)

I used the Micah Makes pattern to crochet a sz 6-12m ear flap hat.  It's meant to resemble an old fashioned bee skip.  Smiley Then I researched crocheted flower patterns and then threw them all out because they didn't do what I wanted and free crocheted Black Eye Susans.  They use a triple stitch with an extra loop.  A quadruple stitch?  Then I looked at bee patterns, shook my head and free crocheted a bee.  I started with a single crocheted circle and then kept going.  Ive never done that before.  It was quite fun. Cheesy  I sewed the motifs onto the hat with yarn and a tapestry needle, and added pompoms.  Cheesy
Project Picture:

I started this hat the week after AnnoyingBabySister was born.  (I LOVE to relax and crochet after I give birth to recoup and bond). The hat itself is single crochet.  I can't remember what pattern I used but it used a amigurumi technique.  There weren't very many brain sucker hats online at the time.  Maybe two, and one was a paid pattern and the other was..... not what I wanted.  Anyway it took me a WEEK of crocheting, ripping out, and recrocheting to get the little feet the way I wanted them.  And by that time my hands ached and I wanted to set fire to the hat, SO thrown into a yarn basket it went.  Very sad about it because now that I've finished it, it's just SO ADORABLE and there's no one in my house who it fits. (And it would NEVER have been so *cute* w/o the pompoms I learned to make during the HP craftalong. : )

I love the brain slug hat. Are the antennae on the little guy stuffed, or did you use wire or both? They're standing up really beautifully, and it just makes the hat.
