the unnatural mother

embracing mother-ing and all its glory – from wet diapers, spit-ups, tantrums to first smiles, hug-a-bugs and sweet cuddles

Little fishies May 5, 2012

This my first attempt at amigurumi and it turned out pretty well. This fish pattern is easy to follow and modify. Since I use a fine crochet thread (Monaco – has a lot of color choices), my fish came out small – the dark violet, sea green (3rd from R) and light blue (Right most).

I’ve since modified the pattern to medium, large and huge

Here’s my attempt at writing the modified pattern.

Medium:

R1 & R2 (of original pattern) : Start with a magic circle, sc 10 (10)

R3: 2 sc in every sc from previous round (20)

R4: 2 sc in every other sc from previous round (30)

R5-7: 1 sc in each (30)

R8: decrease sc 14 decrease sc 14 (28)

R9: sc 7 decrease sc 13 decrease sc 6 (26)

R10: decrease sc 12 decrease sc 12 (24)

R11:  sc 6 decrease sc 11 decrease sc 5 (22)

R12: decrease sc 10 decrease sc 10 (20)

Stuff  fish

R13: decrease all around (12)

Tail

R14: 2 sc in every sc  until desired flare is reached

R15: sc in every sc until desired length is reached

Put together the two tail ends and slip stitch the ends together. Fasten off.
