Crochet Fish Pattern 1

Crochet Fish Pattern

Pattern makes a 4.5 inch Fish


  • Worsted weight yarn - any color
  • Crochet Hook Size I/5.50mm
  • Yarn Needle

Stitch Abbreviations
ch: chain
dc: double crochet
hdc: half - double crochet
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch
sp (s): space (es)
stitch (s): stitch (es)
tr: treble crochet

The Body
Ch 10;

Row 1: Sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. Hdc in next ch, dc in the next, tr in next 3 chs. Dc in the next ch, hdc in the next ch, 3 sc in the last ch.

You should have this so far.

Row 2: Working on the opposite side of the first row, hdc in next ch, dc, one tr in the next 3 sts, dc, hdc, then 2 sc in the last st, sl st to the first sc and fasten off. Weave in ends.

The fish will start to bow and puff out a bit and that's how it's supposed to be. So don't worry, you did everything right.

Now let’s make the tail.

The Tail
Attach yarn in the middle sc of any 3 sc sp you did. I prefer the end that doesn't have the sl st. 

Edit: After you attach the yarn  Ch 2, 4 dc in same space, ch 2 and sl st in same st. 

Ch 1, *sc in the next 4 sts, 2 sc in the next st, sc in the next 4 sts*, 3 sc in the next st, Repeat from * to *. 

Sl st in the tail sp, Ch 2. Sc 3 times in the first dc, sc in next two sts. 3 sc in the next dc. Ch 2. Sl st in the same tail sp. ch 1. Sl st to the first sc. 

Fasten Off. Weave in ends.

Hope you enjoy my pattern;

Something Fishy This Way Comes

Aah a break! I currently have no orders to work on; that makes me happy yet sad. My four lapghans turned out so beautifully, I'm so happy. Lapghans aren't even something I do, but my client asked if I could make them so why not?

Here are all four all finished and folded

I had a slight creative streak the other night and crocheted this cute little baby blanket.<3 p="">

I just listed it on Etsy today. I'm thinking of making one in girl colors with a different applique, maybe flowers. I came up with the pattern for the fish and I will be posting that soon. I think they're so cute! I think the blanket is going to be perfect for someone with a fish/ocean themed nursery maybe even a beach themed one as well. I made if from leftover yarn I had from the other blankets. I have so much yarn I really need to just sit down and crochet, crochet, crochet. 

I've been trying to come up with some patterns to post on here. I've come up with a few I just need to take the time to write them out and do a run through with pictures and such. Fun!

Well here's what I plan to do in the next few weeks or so:

Fish pattern
Headband pattern
Disney themed crochet bunting pattern (going to be so cute)
Crochet flower bunting pattern

So be on the lookout for those posts and patterns.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Until next time have a great memorial day!

Its Crunch Time

I've been working hard these days, crocheting and crocheting and crocheting. I have four lapghans to go. I finished the baby blanket that was ordered, see below.
I absolutely love it, so does my client.

I just finished the first lapghan of five today. I thought this one would take me the longest but I just say down and pushed through it.

This lapghan reminds me of Roses in the Garden. ❤️

Now I'm working this one:
This one makes me think of Halloween. I don't know why. Well back to crocheting.

Have a great night everyone.
