    I would pay cold hard cash, or paypal some e-ducats, for that hat.

    As far as I can make out, the method for knitting one is:
    Knit a plain hat, make a heap of I-cord, sew it on in squiggly lines
    And for crochet (which I find faster and easier):
    Crochet a plain hat in double stitch, create squiggly “folds” on the outside of it using treble stitch (either by making a long line of chain stitch then a row of treble and sewing it on or straight onto the hat).
    Just remember that for it to look like a brain the left and right halves should be separate, at least at the front.
    If someone wanted, they could pay money for an actual pattern here: http://crochettoday.com/crochet-patterns/brainy-maniac or they could pay $40 for this one on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/84500335/adult-size-ready-to-ship-exposed?ref=sr_gallery_25&ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=brain+hat&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade

    No kidding!  I just barely did this, but used the hilbert curve to get the brain shape!
    Here’s how I did it (and if I can do it with $10 of supplies in a hotel room 3000 miles from home, so can you):

    I’m going to try and knit one for my choir director. If it works out, I’ll post pics and maybe we can talk e-ducats!
