Pattern Description:

I love this cute fish and bone beanie!
It comes in two colors. Knit it in your favorite ones, has a two color ribbing and funny comic fish skeletons all around.
The crown has a fish skeleton top and looks like a star :)

I knitted this beanie with 4-ply Acrylic yarn Buttinette Versailles
(214 yards/50g) but you can also use 4-ply sock yarn, Merino yarn or similar.

As the whole beanie has two colors through and through it(tm)s also suitable for fair isle knitting beginners.

I also designed a matching fun T-shirt to go with it.
The text refers to the cat ate fish beanie incident.
Two neighbor cats snatched a gold fish from our neigbors pond and left the skeleton in our yard. They were still licking when we saw them.

Enjoy and happy fish skeleton knitting!
