Terrorific Tuesday - Week 2

Here is my submission for week 2 of Terrorific Tuesday.

It's a brain slug that I crocheted using TLC Essentials Light Celery. I used this pattern, but created my own antennae for it.
(mini-pattern time!!)

I used a size G hook for both the body and the antennae.

Working in a spiral, start with the beady end of the antennae.
Start with a magic circle (4 sc)
2 sc in each sc (8 sc)
Sc2tog (4 sc)

At this point, I then cut two pieces of 24 gauge wire in equal lengths. I folded each in half and placed it in the beady end. I stuffed the end a bit, then continued with the stem.

Sc in each around for as long as you want the antennae. I think I made the stem about 1 1/2" long, about 10 or 11 rows. FO.

I used a piece of felt for the eye, and a safety eye. Attach a hair clip, and you can wear your brain slug proudly!
