Using a blunt tapestry needle and the long tail of yarn, sew the hole at the bottom of the body closed.

Once the hole is closed, hide the stray tail inside of the body.  Using the tip of your scissors gently stuff the tail end into the body.

  • Snout:

Using baby blue yarn,

R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook – 6 sts

R2: sc in each st around – 6 sts

Place the snout between the eyes and sew in place.  Position the snout so that the wider bottom half faces down and the smaller top half faces up.

  • Fins (make 2 of these):

Using baby blue yarn,

R1: Ch 2, 4 sc in second ch from hook – 4 sts

R2: 2 sc in each st around – 8 sts

Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Pinch each piece in half so that they form semi-circles.

Using the blunt tapestry needle, sew the fins onto the sides of the body.  I like to place the fins more towards the back of the body rather than exactly at the sides.  It looks more like it’s swimming in this position!

Once sewn, it should look like this.

Repeat the same process with the other fin.  Be sure to position the fin on the body as symmetrically as possible.  Re-position as many times as needed to achieve the most symmetrical position.

Now, it should have 2 fins!

  • Top Fin:

Using baby blue yarn,

R1: Ch 2, 3 sc in second ch from hook – 3 sts

R2: 2 sc in each st around – 6 sts

Fasten off, leaving a long tail.  Pinch the piece in half to form a semi-circle like the side fins.

Sew the fin onto the top of the body.  I staggered the fin slightly below the center of the top, just to give it a little more style.

  • Tail:

Using baby blue yarn,

R1: Ch 2, 3 sc in second ch from hook – 3 sts

R2: 2 sc in each st around – 6 sts

R3: 1 sc, 2 sc in next st around – 9 sts

R4: 2 sc, 2 sc in next st around – 12 sts

Fasten off, leaving a long tail.  Do not stuff the tail.  The shape should look like a cone.

Sew the tail onto the back end of the body.

    this is so cute! thank you for the pattern.

    could I also ask you a question, I’m kinda new at crocheting so I was wonder when you crochet in the round for this, do you pick up the front loop or both loops?

  • Annie

    Thanks so much! Can’t wait to try it out. :)

    I just made this! its so fast and easy ^^ I’m experienced at amigurumi and I couldn’t hold my urge from making this cute lil thang ;3

    Thank you for the pattern! xoxo

    Great pattern, and just what I was looking for; cute and simple!
    I just started chrochetting as well, and the directions for row 4 of the body were a little confusing to me for a while, but I finally figured out that it’s a single crochet in the first and second stitches of the row, and then two single crochetes in the third stitch, which you repeat until the end of the row. Just thought I would clarify for anyone else who ends up wondering the same thing :)
