Pattern: Fish Hat (Dead or Alive?)
Yarn: Noro Kureyon #150, Cascade 220 in Navy for fins and lips (buttons for eyes)
My best friend from college, Elizabeth, is already in posession of a squid hat made by another knitting friend of hers. So when I saw the Fish Hat pattern I immediately thought of her and knew I just had to make her one. (I went to visit her and present the hat this weekend, but sadly forgot my camera, which is why you see it modeled by little old me).
I haven’t seen any other fish hats in Noro Kureyon, which frankly shocks me, since I found the yarn to be so perfect for it.
When Elizabeth put the hat on, she remarked that the fins made it look like a Roman helmet. I didn’t really see it, but when I saw the (fairly ugly) photo below I thought it looked familiar.
You be the judge.
