Now add the fringe.

Making Fringe

Making fringe is a very quick and easy process.

First cut the pieces of yarn that you want to be the fringe. For this scarf, I cut the yarn to be 8 inches long which gives mean 4 inch fringe approx. Cut them a little long so you can trim afterwards. Better to be too long and need to trim, than to short.

I cut three pieces per side, so 6 pieces in total of each colour.

 

Next, push your hook through the scarf where you want the fringe to go.

 

 

Hook the yarn piece in the middle and pull through.

 

 

Now hook the two look ends and pull through the loop. Pull tight.

 

 

Repeat until all pieces are used. Trim to desired length.You have finished a beautiful fringe.

Thread yarn through remaining stitches, pull tight and sew in loose ends.

(Note: This pattern creates a cap that sits above the ears to represent the brain. If you would prefer a larger hat that would be suitable for a winter hat that covers the ears, simple add more rows before decreasing until you reach your desired length.)

Brains:

Cast on 5 stitches with dpn

Knit I-cord. You will need approx 10-12 feet of I-cord per side of the cap. I recommend knitting approx 6 feet then starting to attach it to the hat without casting off from the needle. This will make the I-cord more manageable but still in one long piece.

Attach the I-cord using whip stitch in a squiggly brain like pattern. To attach fold cap in half, this will help you create the hemispheres of the brain and not cross over onto the other side. Just be careful not to sew your cap together! This is where you can get as creative as you like making big and small swirls, squiggles and loops. Do what you feel and get creative. Use your brain power.

 

Sew in all loose ends.

Wear with pride.

Sl st all the way around

For the corners sl st, ch1 sl st,

Peanut Butter and Jam – Light brown and Red yarn

Crochet a square the same size as the bread and finish off, if you want it to overhang slightly make it one or two stitches longer than the bread. I found that the same size gives you enough of a view but then again I don’t like messy sandwiches.

Finishing

Weave in ends and sew closed at corners.

If this is intended to be a toy for a child I would sew down all the edges so it does not come apart.
