These hats are addicting. Had to make another one. Only this time I made it “alive”. I added crocheted eyes and a little stuffing to make the eyes pop. I used Knit Picks Chroma Worsted yarn for this fish and size 7 circular needles 16 inches long. I found it is much easier to do the short rows on circular needles than on double points. Of course as I went along and the width of the fish got smaller, I had to change to double points.
I also knitted the tail fins in the round and Kitchener stitched the opening closed. Then I knitted the dorsal and pectoral fins separately and sewed them on.
