Gotta catch ‘em all!

And if you catch 101 of these you might have enough Magikarp candy to evolve it into a Gyarados!^

My version of a Magikarp hat, because one can never have enough Magikarps. This pattern is best suited to intermediate to experienced crafters as it involves a range of crochet stitches, multiple individual pieces and lots and lots of counting.

Stitches used: slst, dc, dc2tog, htr, tr, tr2tog FPtr, magic ring

Caution! This pattern has not been beta tested. Stitches have been counted to the best of my ability, but there is a reason I’m not a mathematician (or a census taker). Your results may vary; proceed with care!

** Erratum: The pattern is actually in UK crochet symbols.**

** Erratum 2: Argh! I messed up on the pattern for the dorsal fin. The increases in the pattern are meant to be decreases. Shoot me now.**

^Hat will not evolve into a Gyarados. I mean, seriously?
