As you may know by know my youngest daughter will be having her second child this summer and she’s kept me busy with all sorts of baby projects. She’s been searching the internet for all sorts of cute and adorable things that I can make. One of our favorites are these adorable crocheted jellyfish.
They’re very easy to make, beginners will catch on real quick! And those curly tentacles, well think of them as free form crochet, you can make them as long as you want and as straight or curly as you want.
I found the pattern for these adorable crocheted jellyfish online and I just had to share. Of course I added my own touch by crocheting the ruffled fringe at the bottom.
The pattern I used is from One Dog Woof blog. It was so nice of them to share! You can use the online version for free or if you prefer you can purchase the ad free version from their Etsy or Craftsy stores. Click here to see the online version of the pattern.

As you can see I couldn’t stop at just one crocheted jellyfish, I made 5!
I used 5 colors of Lion Brand Ice Cream Yarn. This yarn comes in a variety of colors. The ones I used are Strawberry, Grape, Mint, Blueberry, and Lemon Meringue. They’re all variegated and you end up with a lovey combination of colors.
I used a 6mm hook but you can use whatever size you like to get the correct gauge. Better yet experiment with different hooks and get variety of crocheted jellyfish in different sizes!
I also added the ruffle you see at the bottom edge of each crocheted jellyfish. This is definitely optional, they look just as cute without.
If you want to add the ruffle just do this after you attach the bottom to the stuffed head:
*sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc in first stitch, sl st in next* Repeat all the way around ending with a sl st in the last stitch. Fasten off and weave ends in.
Other than the changes I just mentioned I followed the pattern from One Dog Woof to the tee!
