I love jellyfish! And I could not resist this cute pattern for “Gordon (aka Sting) the Jellyfish” from Crocheted Softies by Stacey Troch.
For this guy, I followed the pattern pretty closely because it was my first time trying it out. I changed the needle size to fit the width of this beautiful pink cotton yarn I found at my local yarn store. I also played around with the placement of the eyes.
I then went on to make my own variations by changing yarn color, needles size, yarn width, and placement of eyes. I made the thin tentacles thicker and sturdier with a row of sc crocheted in to the chain.
All together? SUPER cute.
And don’t forget to pair up with matching accessories for cute gift ideas!
