Cute crochet jellyfish, FREE pattern! | www.1dogwoof.com

I’ve been thinking about these crochet jellyfish for a while, so I’m happy to share the pattern today! I think they’re fun to hang around with, and made from cotton, would pair well with my fish scrubbies in an ocean-themed kids bathroom!

Last summer when I went back to Taiwan, my sister and I picked up these weird little hand-towel doohickies from the local Poya. You can buy pretty much anything there – like a teeny tiny Target, and we’d spent quite a bit of time in there with my parents just cruising the different cute odds and ends. Anyways, these doohickies were these tubes covered in those microfiber mop wormy ends, and topped off with a cute strawberry or a cute lime or something. I came home with 2, a red one and a green one, and the kids have been fighting over them since. They’re supposed to be used to dry your hands. They have been occasionally used to dry hands, but more often to be snuggled (while clean) and flung around the house.

That crazy story is the inspiration for my crochet jellyfish. I wanted to make something that can be used to dry your hands but be adorable too, and I thought that the jellyfish tentacles could work in that capacity. I made only one originally, but with two kids, I can’t not make another one. IT HAS TO BE FAIR! So, one blue one for the boy, and one purple one for the girl. Le sigh. And of course, neither have ever been used to dry hands. They are snuggle dolls now.

Because I wanted them originally to be used in a bathroom, I chose to use cotton yarn. Yarnspirations was kind enough to supply me with their Bernat Handicrafter cotton, and it was a joy to work with such vibrant colors. The yarn was sturdy and held its shape well, especially in the curly cues, but was still soft enough to cuddle with!

The final size of the jellyfish is about 15 to 18 inches long, with the head about 5 inches across. The length of the jellyfish is up to you and how you want to make and arrange the curly cues. I did notice that after some hard playing, my son’s jellyfish’s curly cues loosened and lengthened a bit.

Just one piece of advice/warning. If you are making this for small children, PLEASE supervise their play. These are long curly cues, and God forbid it becomes a strangulation hazard. This pattern was not designed to be dangerous, but, well, kids. So, be careful if they’re flinging it around, and especially don’t let kids sleep with their jellyfish friends. Maybe it is safer to let them hang out in the bathroom as a cute little towel.

Jellyfish streamers/tentacles:

I found the streamers were easiest and most fun when done freeform. All of them are a little different, but I used the same basics for each one to maintain consistency. You can check out my curly cue sampler to get an idea of what each type of curl will look like. Also, you can change up the hook size for a different look. I used a G hook for the blue jellyfish and an H hook for the purple jellyfish. On each jellyfish, there are 8 tentacles of varying width and length.

  • Chain either 30, 40, 50, 60 or even 70.
  • Work 2 (or 3) sc in each chain stitch OR work 2 (or 3) hdc in each chain stitch. If you’re starting with sc, then work into 2nd chain from hook. If you’re starting with hdc, then work into 3rd chain from hook.
  • Now, think of this as a Choose Your Own Crochet Adventure. Continue working sc or hdc, working 2 or 3 stitches into each chain across, then fasten off, leaving a tail.

I found it best if you stick with a particular pattern long enough to establish the right curl, then change it to create a different type curl. Don’t change your stitch type too quickly. You can curl the curly cues properly or leave it messy, up to you!

Assembly

Step 1: Attach the safety eyes between rows 12 and 13 on the cap, about 8 stitches apart.

Step 2:  Use the embroidery thread to sew on a mouth halfway between the eyes.

Step 3: Attach the tentacles to the bottom panel by weaving both tails of the tentacles through stitch spaces in the panel, and tie a double knot to secure. You can weave the ends in, or maybe not, since it’ll be hidden inside the stuffed head. I chose to weave in ends because I don’t know how hard the kids will pull on the tentacles.

Step 4: Match up the seam stitch of the panel against the seam stitch of the cap. Insert your hook through both loops (front to back) on one stitch on the cap, and pull through a loop of the panel’s tail. Work a chain stitch. Then insert your hook through the same cap stitch, and through the first stitch on the panel, pull up a loop and complete a sc. (It’s ok if you fudge this. You just need to attach the two pieces together to get started.)

Step 5: For the next stitch and for each stitch around, insert hook from outside of cap through all 4 loops (cap and panel). Work a sc.

Step 6: Once you’ve gone almost around, stuff the head with fiberfill, then continue working sc around to close up the head. Join to the first sc with a sl st. Fasten off and weave in ends.

If you’d like to hang your jellyfish, you can sew on a loop at the top. Otherwise you’re done!
