Spaghettifish Hat Mark II

After creating K’s Flying Spaghettifish Hat from Julie Ridl’s fabulous Jollyfish pattern, I was immediately inspired to make one for myself. Tapping in to my inner girlie girl, I went with a thick worsted Merino blend in charcoal and hot pink.

Also deliberately loosened my floats this time to make sure they didn’t pull in on each other like K’s, which left the ribs floaty and almost separated from the fabric. Next time I’ll carry the same set all the way around like a Fair Isle, and take the time to tack in the floats as I go. Still fun and warm, and good practice!
