    My wife works as a writer for a UK knitting magazine, she found this cool squid hat for a child.

    She's going to knit one for our smallest.

    Knitted Sqiddy hat...

    Seriously, I want one for me.

    I don't think that's wrong. There's nothing strange about a 36 yr old wearing a knitted Squid cap. It's cold.

    So there.

    another knit squid hat

    A friend of mine just blogged that she's making a knit squid hat from a pattern that's no longer online, but is in the "internet way-back machine" here:

    http://web.archive.org/web/20051218021633/www.strangebuttrewe.com/squidhat.pdf

    for all you squid-knitters out there... ( I love fringe demographic categories!)

    Even if you're not a knitter, it's worth looking at the PDF file for the pictures...

    That is amazing! Good find Monty, If I can persuade my knitting other half to make one, the locals of Somerset will be gasping with awe as i walk down the road.

    this seems as good a time and place as any to link to this forum of ceph craft goodies.

    knit cephs

    My friend Cat has knitted a nautilus and a squid... the naut is based on the "knitty nautie" pattern we've seen before.





    The original pics are here in her LiveJournal.

    The cuttlefish is too cute! I like the Dumbo Octopus too. Thanks to your friend for passing this on to you. I posted the seahorse here for dwhatley...

    I have the pattern for the baby squid hat on the first post.
    http://www.poormojo.org/cgi-bin/gennie.pl?Squid+232+bi
    Unfortunately, the author doesn't specify needle size or yard,
    but does supply the correct gauge. She says to knit every row, but I
    did it in stockinette stitch (knit the first row, purl the next row). The
    directions are a bit sketchy for my taste, but it's a great hat shape.
