Because the magazine is out of print, I have contacted the people at Coats and Clark who now have the rights to this pattern. They may make it available to the public again in the future, but if you need this now you can contact Red Heart on the website.…through the Contact Us at the top of the home page and ask for the pattern. Good luck!
Please note that there is a section of stockinette missing from the head section in the pattern. Right before working the short rows section work 10 (12) rounds of stockinette stitch. There is also a tip on working the slipstitch pattern. Click on the ERRATA link above for details.
I was inspired by the fish hat craze as led by Thelma Egbert’s design Fish Hat, and a slipstitch pattern that looked like scales when I made these silly hats.
You won’t need rods and reels to catch these whoppers.
