fish blanket and little kid hats

Hi! I hardly ever post here, but a while back a couple people posted this fish blanket, but then when you make those fish they end up being not even close to flat.
I figured out a way to make them flat.

Pretty much I just changed the pattern so that it decreased right next to the edge, instead of in the middle.

I don't have a picture of what they looked like with the original pattern, but here is what they look like with the changed one. I made them on sz 11 needles and double-stranded caron simply soft because I want a full-sized bed cover and there's no way I'm making upwards of 200 fish.

I'm sorry if that's not okay to repost this pattern, but I didn't make it up at all, I just figured out a way to make it lie flat.


Also, does anyone know of a good toddler hat? I'm making hats for my 2-year-old cousins and I have no idea how big their heads are. I did find some, like this and this, but I wanted to know if there are any very good ones that anyone's tried out. Also, how long should a scarf be for a kid that age?
