Sept 8, 2013: The Tyee Fish Hat pattern is back online, but it is no longer free. However, I am charging a smaller amount for the Tyee Fish Hat pattern than for other hat patterns. And the Tyee Hat is now joined by another Fishy friend, the Magic Carp! The new pattern is ready, after numerous requests to write out the instructions to make this variation.
