Well hello there knitting board.

I  have known the basics of knitting for a while but I'm still a beginner. I guess I would put myself in the medium to advanced section of the beginners category. Anyway I was looking for a pattern that was interesting and challenging but not too complicated (sometimes knitting patters look like gibberish to me). I found this great one http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter08/PATTfishy.php and it was a good way to use up two leftover skeins.

I highly recommend this pattern if you are a beginner like me who wants to step it up (just a bit).

The pattern was was easy to follow. The only change I made was to the tail. When it was finished I felt like the tail was too small so I made a simple add on of 3 rows of single crochet. Oh and I didn't like the x's for eyes. Who wants a dead fish on their head?

Anyway I love him(?) and am already planning the next one.

That is one amazing fish. I love the yarn and I think I agree with you about the eyes.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Hey!  Great job!  I think you picked a good project, as Ive made fish hats from that pattern too.  A fun pattern.  Smiley

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
