I made my first brain protector without a pile of flesh-- in fact it started as a scarf and then took life as a brain protector, it's rather unique oweing to its tight weave (it could double as a fruit bowl its THAT sturdy), it reminds me of a pillbox brain protector.  I thought I'd share.

brain protector and matching scarf-- the scarf was knit using same yarn on size 19 needles

rough instructions.....
Pillbox crocheted brain protectorin Jiffy Quick on K or L I used a hook under what they reccommended for tight weave)

Chain on 10 14 stiches (depending on yarn weightI chained on 10 in worsted weight jiffy quick, but probably needed at least 12)

Single Crochet in rows (remembering to chain one at the end to increase and turn to start the next row)  Single Crochet until the rectangle is long enough to wrap around your head--- this forms the straight band on the brain protector--- blanket stitch or single crochet through both edges.

Single Crochet in the round along the top edge, complete two-four cycles around (check the fit)

Single Crochet 6 stitches and then decrease one (hook through two stitches) continue until the top narrows. Stitch center together as needed and tie off.

If desired, single crochet in the round along the bottom edge to finish.

Lovely work, it has just changed my current project.  I was just going to gather the top and now I am going to decrease it and see how it turns out.  Thanks for sharing!
