Pattern is Bullseye by Brittany Tyler. I used over 3,000 yards of Superwash Cascade 220, Berroco Vintage, and Encore. I started planning it last Christmas and worked on it from April through Christmas Eve!

Pattern is Fish Hat [Dead or Alive?] by Thelma Egberts from Knitty, Winter 2008 with modifications by Eartheo to fit a toddler. I used Vanna's Choice yarn and buttons for the eyes.
