This pattern is part of a series I'm working on that fit together to form an anatomically correct human brain. The cerebellum plays an important role in balance control, whilst the brainstem governs a wide variety of important functions, including heart rate, breathing, and temperature regulation.
You will need:
- A 2.5mm crochet hook
- White #10 crochet cotton (optional)
- Anchor creativa fino cotton in green and light purple
- Polyester toy stuffing
- A darning needle
Make a magic loop with 6sc
You may now want to shape the 2 hemispheres of your cerebellum. This is done by using a needle and thread to make stitches at strategic points in the structure, as shown in the images below.
You may wish to embroider the internal structure onto the end (the section surrounded by the line made from crocheting in the back loop of each st). This can be seen in the images below.

Row 8: slip the back loop of these 4sts
The brainstem fits together with the cerebellum as shown below. If you don't intend to make a full brain you can sew these sections together, but otherwise keep them separate for the minute.
That's all from this pattern - I hope you have enjoyed it! If you have any questions please feel free to email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me on my Instagram, which you can follow to be kept up to date with what I'm working on.
As alwas you are very welcome to sell finished products but I do ask that you don't re-post this pattern or claim it as your own. Thank you!
