I made this hat for one of my best friends for Christmas (yeah, I'm awful at crafting things on time so it wasn't completed in time for the holiday but it was done quite a bit before now at least!  Roll Eyes ).

Her name is Ariel so The Little Mermaid is a big thing for her.  She gets stuff with it on it all the time.  A looooooong time ago when I first learned how to knit, the first thing I made to branch out from scarves was a fish hat for her.  It wasn't until recently that I learned that, while she wears the hat frequently, it's actually too big for her.  Instead of trying to make that hat work, I wanted to make her a whole new one since my skills have waaaay improved then (plus crochet is much better, right??  Wink ).  I figured making her a Flounder hat was the absolute perfect solution and thus made this:









Sorry for the cruddy pictures.  I don't have a good set-up and I totally forgot to take pictures until she was wearing the hat and literally about to leave.  I had to beg her to stay a couple more minutes so I could even get pics  Cheesy

Regardless, I am SUPER pleased with how it came out!  I managed to get the dorsal fin to turn out PERFECT.  Plus, I was able to make it fit her head amazingly.  I also like that the tail can be made to stand up, or flop down in any direction she likes.

And, best of all, she loves it!  Nothing better than that!  Grin

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

It wasn't really hard to make either.  I think I managed to work mine all up in one day (though I stayed up late cause I got way too excited and couldn't go to bed without it finished, haha)
