Big Fish Hat
Big Fish Hat - Companion Hat to "little fish" - also in my Ravelry shop
Usually when I design a stranded hat, “order” is the order of the day. Each hat breaks down into smaller, repeatable pieces. Yet one of my most popular hats, the “Mother Goose Hat,” has 2 separate charts, each covering half the hat, no repeats. On a recent shopping trip with my daughter, we saw a pair of men’s shorts with fish embroidered on them, but unlike other shorts, the fish were random, unpredictable, just like a real school of fish! We loved them. Here is one of the hats that resulted from our shopping trip.
A slouchy “stash buster” hat (use some of those little balls to stripe those fish) with a braided edge worked in the round. A school of striped fish with blue eyes and a blue wave on the water’s surface. The fish have a sense of humor, but don’t look too childish. Not typical ocean colors, but the background colors show off the fish nicely. Three sizes, Small Child, Child & Adult
