This crochet brain is a fun and easy project that is quick to complete because it's made with bulky weight yarn. It's a fun piece to have on your shelf, use with your "mad scientist" Halloween costume, or make for kids (kids love brains!). The brain has a fuchsia colored center and a lighter pink outer edge. The crochet technique used to make this piece is called "hyperbolic crochet" (that's the fancy math name - but you don't need to be a math whiz to do it! Believe me!). BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet, double crochet SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS one size

Recommended with this pattern

  • To make this brain you will need bulky weight yarn in fuchsia and light pink, a size L/8.0mm crochet hook, scissors, and a yarn needle.
