It looks like a piece of abalone shell.

Knitted by request for a painter friend, who is giving me some of his work in exchange.  Now everyone wants it!  I'm charging $25 for the next one, even though they take me HOURS to complete.

Sorry for the horrible pictures, he's wicked hyper and wouldn't stand still long enough for me to take any more.

Yikes that's small! So here are the steps. Basically you need either a pillowcase, two pieces of fabric long and wide enough, or one long and wide piece of fabric that you can fold (this is the better as you would only have 2 sides to sew rather than 3).

After you have your fabric draw the shape you see on the top right diagram on it. Cut it out. If you fold your fabric you won't have to cut the top line. Then you sew a nice folded hem on the bottom edges. After that you just pin the sides and sew. Voila.

OK, but how do you actually wrap it?  I can sort of make a bun behind my head but it's HUGE and my ends all stick out the top making me look like a brown aloe plant.  I pulled an inchworm and a beetle out of my hair after working in the woods yesterday and today it was full of, geez, some sort of dusty brown stuff, and spiderwebs... I just want to stay as clean as possible and a bandana only covers the front eight inches or so.

It's my understanding that beeswax, like honey, prevents the growth of mold.  So I wouldn't say that the wax itself causes mold, my thoughts are that since it repels water it would actually inhibit it.  I know I was never stinky when I had wax in my hair.  The best way to prevent mold, which can grow on ANY damp surface, is to keep your dreads as clean as possible so there is nothing for the fungus to grow on, and always allow your dreads to dry completely, preferably in the sun.  Ultraviolet light kills the fungus that most people call mildew, and so does vinegar.
I'm not sure that this mold will actually damage dreads, as I think it eats cellulose and not protein.  But don't quote me on that.

So when I picked my friend up he said, "What'd you make me, what'd you make me?!" before we even got back to my house.  When I told him it was a flounder he was a little put off, but when he saw it I don't think he was disappointed.  Especially when I explained that it was flat so as not to take up room in the car.
He said he was expecting slippers.... ?  I don't know why!  But now I have a new project, I guess!

Yeah, the things I could do with decent yarn!
My friend is on his way over right now, I can't wait to give it to him!
