Here's a picture of a just finished Brutus the Buckeye. I was inspired by another post a while back - thanks to that post, I never would've thought to make Brutus!

what is the world coming to?  brutus on the front page of craftster... Wink
but really, you did a fabulous job!  it's just that i happen to have a certain affinity for Bucky Badger.  that's okay, my husband (and sons if i'm not careful) are all Ohio State fans.  Go Buckeyes! Smiley

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)

Wow I can totally see him dotting the "I" in a little tiny ami version of "script ohio" which I am a little ashamed to say makes me cry when I see it at football games.  Go Bucks!

Thanks for all the great comments! I shed a tear at the script Ohio, too! Smiley

I used the Sprite pattern from Crochet Me's site as the basis for Brutus, just changing the colors as needed:

I wish I could remember how I did the light brown oval on his face! I'll have to try to go back and count. I know I started with the usual magic-ring circle for about four rows, then I slip-stitched around until I got to the point where I wanted to add more stitches to make the oval. I'm sure there's a better way out there to make an oval - I'll have to find it when I try to make another Brutus in the future!

The hat started as a magic-ring circle with 6 sc, then I just added inc evenly around until I got the width, then I stitched evenly around to get the height. The brim of the hat and the towel are straight single crochet.

Wow, that's really confusing - I hope that makes sense! Thanks everyone for checking out Brutus!
