I think I’ll do the occasional post on things I made before I started blogging. One of the first things I ever knit was this hat. 

I know I wore it in the winter of 2009 so I must have made it just before then. I think it’s a really fun hat. 


It also doubles as a balaclava as long as you’re not bothered about being able to see.


This is a free pattern on Knitty. I basically got all of my patterns from Knitty before I started using Ravelry to its full potential. 

Pattern: Fish Hat (Dead or Alive?)

Yarn: Various worsted weight yarns, bands long discarded
