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.

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.
