Skills needed


You need to know how to make a single crochet and how to increase / decrease a stitch

beg BO dr


- begin, beginning - bind off - double ring: prevents holes at beginning of work: to make a double ring wrap yarn around your finger two times, remove resulting loops from finger and start crocheting desired number of stitches into these loops. Holding the stitches firmly with one hand, pull on the yarn tail with the other. One after the other both loops will drawn closed. Insert a marker at the beginning/end of the round. esc - extended single crochet; Insert hook in next st, yo, pull up a loop, yo, draw through one loop, yo, and draw through all loops on hook f&b - front and back m2 - make 2, i.e. make two single crochets into one stitch m2[x,y] - make 2, make stitches given in parenthesis into one stitch, follow given order sc - single crochet sc2tog - decrease 1 stitch tog - together

Yarn requirements Use whatever yarn U like, try everything you can find. You might result in something very adorable. I use catania from Schachenmayr. It is a 100 % cotton yarn and a typical yarn to make potholders from.

Needles Use the needle size to obtain gauge given on your yarn. If you find your tension to be very loose try using a needle size smaller. It is important to make tight stitches due to a firm and substantial form of your doll.

Stuffing Stuff firmly! I tend to overstuff my dolls. Overstuffing leads to a well shaped look of your dolls and they hold their shape quite nicely.

Finished size The finished size of your amigurumi goes hand in hand with the yarn and needle you choose. However using a 3.5 mm needle / E hook you will receive dolls of about 4 to 7 “ high. Chubby measures 3” / 8 cm high and 5” / 12 cm wide.

Final Tip Use a row counter or something else to keep track with your finished rounds. Mark the beginning of your row; it helps a lot with counting. I prefer waste yarn pieces like thread or pearl cotton to mark my stitches. Plastic or metal stitch markers often leave little holes in tight crocheted fabric.

have a look at your fish's body, do you see the last increase area at the top that goes "m2, sc8, m2" ? this will help you mark the middle / top side of your doll. Now use pins to fix the dorsal fin in place, behind the color change line. Start seaming and stuff as you do so BO, secure yarn ends also see the pictures on the next page to identify the top of your fish

Stuff the caudal fin (not too tight) and sew it to body: place former part B (larger one) right above the bind off row of body and seam neatly, don’t lay the ends flat but seam in a circle, this way the fin will pop up nicely and won’t flutter (if you wish so, seam end flat) BO securely and hide yarn ends in fish's body.


That’s all, you’re finished and can have playtime with your new fishy friend.
