Though this hat is knit differently to reflect my own style of knitting and pattern writing and to adjust for the much smaller canvas of a newborn’s head, I would like to give credit and thanks to Thelma Egberts for the visual inspiration for this baby hat from her adult version of the fish hat.

I prefer my fish to have a less floppy head, so feel free to extend the length of the hat if you prefer a fish with a longer body.

Pattern requires approximately 6-8g of sock weight yarn for the lips, tail and fins, and approximately 22-28g of sock weight yarn for the body. Great for using up scraps of sock weight yarn.
