In the third book in these series the Fishy (or preferably called Death Fish Hat in these case!) plays a role. At the end of the book, the knitting pattern is printed.
A quote from Moon Spinners:
"...Cass pulled down a knit hat and laid it on her lap, unfinished. She looked down at it and smilde. It ws a colorfull combination of brilliant wool yarns.
Nell looked over. "Cass, what is that?"
"It's the fish hat I told you abut. I found it on knitty.com. I love it. "The mouth of the fish had a bright red border, a hole where someone's face would eventually go. On the sides, fins flapped out in bright green and yellow yarn."
