Oh Fishy-Fish!

At Gencon last year there was a hat vendor with many an entertaining hat.  One was of a dead fish.  I boasted I could make one just as good.  My sewing skills are pretty basic and this one was made out of felt but I figured I could pull it off.  And then this pattern appeared on knitty.  You can see what happened next.   Its going to be a birthday gift for a fish savvy friend.  Here’s hoping he hasn’t got his internet working again…

Cascade 220 wool (light green) and left over Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride (dark green & teal) from past projects.  Knit on a 5mm circ to get the gauge (or as close to).  Techs used: short rows, knitting in the round, & colour work.  Eyes are single crochet circles in some bulky BS Lamb’s Pride.
