This hat was created after I received a message on Ravelry asking if there were a possibility of turning my stingray toy into a stingray hat, creating an illusion of a stingray sitting on your head.
Stella, the stingray
The hat is knit in the round. Start with a 1x1 rib brim in CC yarn. Then work the underbody of the stingray by increasing the stitches in 10 places. Change to MC, and continue to work short rows to create the two flaps. Then continue to decrease the stitches to finish the body of the stingray. When you decrease to the same amount of stitches as the brim, you will continue to knit the top of the hat, with a crown decrease.
