This skull cap is adorned by lots of little fish, a whole school of them. One little fish is headed in his own direction, but the rest follow the leader. Knit in the round, beginning with a braided edge, it fits close to the head in 4 sizes, Infant, Small Child, Large Child/Small Adult and Adult. Quick to knit in worsted weight, instructions are included for optionally lining with a thin fleece cap for extra warmth. It’s a great “stash buster” hat, using up some of the little balls that take up space and never seem to have a purpose!
