Brain slug
My dd ask if I would make a brain slug for my grandson to wear for Halloween. Since I don't have any idea what a brain slug is as I don't watch Futurama, I just made it following the pattern and hoped for the best !

I did teach myself magic loop, many thanks to the wonderful Amy for another superb video. Took me about a minute to catch on even reversing directions for my right brain.

There's actually a few patterns on Ravelry that look a lot like that! Great job on it!

That looks fantastic. I knit a brain slug hat for my best friends baby back in January. I think when she gets old enough to wear headbands I will knit her one just like that and attach it to a head band. Her momma would love it. Just too cute!

That is so cute! Looks great on the baby!

Nonny that looks really great! I wouldn't have known what a brain slug was either...

Oh, my gosh, that is sooo cute! That baby is so adorable! You did a great job on it. I had more trouble finding a green yarn that I thought was "sluggy" than anything else!
