I can’t remember what or who started the internet trail that led to me finding this pattern, but here we are. This is designed by Catrina Usher, who I think came up with a really brilliant idea with her Stinky Fish hat. It’s a free pattern on Ravelry.
Here is my version:
It’s a bit tight on Carol because it’s toddler size, but it’ll be dead easy to make bigger sizes. I fiddled with the pattern a bit (didn’t do all the fancy stitches, used buttons for eyes, and left off the top fin) but I love it! It’s really versatile, as you’ll see from the photos on Ravelry that people have sent in.
Stinky Fish will come with me to the Somerset West market on Saturday, let’s see if anyone wants to buy it!
Back soon x
Very cute. Good luck for Saturday. xxx
Thanks Gail, I love the SW market, I can’t wait :-)
Brilliant! Just love it! Love the fact it is quirky and fun.
Oh Jill, I’m sure you will not have a problem selling the stinky fish hat. Good luck with the market and I can’t wait to hear how it goes. Love and Hugs, Tamara
But why ‘stinky’? It’s a gorgeous fish hat…
Fun hat! Not quite my style. :-) but ought to go down well with fun people.
lol that is one of the silliest fun pattern that I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing. You gave me a nice chuckle. :)
Love your stinky fish hat Jill!
I love the fish tail at the back…really cute.
Also unsure why it’s stinky, but 100% positive you’ll sell it!
