Description from Knitty:
Do you smell something fishy? No, of course you don’t! Don’t worry that bad smells will scare people away when you wear this hat. This 100% odorless fish will attract people to you instead!

It was specially designed for a boy called Jonas, fish lover and future sea biologist. But it looks good on any other head, even if you are not 10 years old any more! This hat is an ideal project for using left over bits of yarn. Vary with colors and striping as much as you like!
