    There’s something fishy in my pocket!
    Let’s face it, haven’t you always wanted a fish in your pocket. I’m not talking smelly, slimy real fish, but nice well-behaved knitted fish with which you can charm and delight your friends. Get the knitting needles and yarn ready, for here we go!
    Step 1: Yarn and needles
    Choose nice brightly coloured yarn and a pair of 3mm (or larger) knitting needles. I like 3 mm needles, as they give a nice tight finish. I am using bright red to start.
    Step 2: The tail end.
    Start at the tail end and cast on twelve stitches and knit one row plain and one row purl. If you want a wider, longer tail, start with a few more stitches (multiple of two) If you want a very wide tail, but not a longer one. Cast on 24 stitches and decrease one stitch at each end of every row.
    Knitting tip, When not increasing or decreasing, I always slip the first stitch at the beginning of the row, instead of knitting as this makes a much neater row end.
    Step 3: Decrease
    Knitting in stockinette stitch, (one row plain, one row purl – the plain row is the right side)
    decrease one stitch at each end of the plain rows only, until 6 stitches remain on your needle. (Decrease by knitting two stitches together) Knit three rows in stockinette stitch without decreasing.
    Step 4: On the increase
    I have changed colour from red to yellow, but you can continue in red, or any other colour you like.
    Increase one stitch at each end of every other row (the plain knitting rows only) until you have 24 stitches on your needle. Purl one row.
    (Increase by knitting twice into the first and last stitches).
    You can vary your colours and knit stripes if you wish.
    Step 5: Decrease for the head
    Continue in stockinette stitch and decrease one stitch at each end of every plain row until two stitches remain. Knit these two stitches together and bind off.
    Step 6: Same again
    Now you have one side of your pocket fish. Knit a second piece exactly the same as the first.

    Re: wide or long.
    Looks like the wide one used a different pan.

    You would think that hotels would come naturally to a Hilton.

    That’s one ugly duckling.

    Maybe he’s working on his swan song.

    I’d have to stand on my head because it’s my feet that smell.
