Crocheting a three dimensional project can seem pretty intimidating the first time you try it. At least that is how it felt to me so I wanted a nice easy project to get started. I am so glad I chose this Crochet Jellyfish as my first amigurumi (small crochet critter) project . If you can crochet a beanie you can crochet this Jellyfish!

The jellyfish pattern I chose is free to use by One Dog Woof. ChiWei gives easy to follow instructions for how to make and assemble the cap and tentacles, as well as precise instructions for where the eyes and mouth should go.

The pattern suggests you could sew a loop on top for hanging your cute little sea creature up, I chose to crochet the loop. It's best to attach the before adding stuffing. I also used a bit of cloth to line the inside with before stuffing to ensure no stuffing poked out between the stitches.

To add a touch of uniqueness to my little Jellyfish I added a fancy edging to the bell margin (cap/face) with a reverse or 'crab' puff stitch. For the eyes and mouth I used embroidery thread.

I'm so grateful to the woman who asked my craft group to make her little sick little girl a crochet toy to cheer her up while she was in hospital or I may never have given amigurumi a try.

If you're looking to try your hand at amigurumi I highly recommend giving this crochet jellyfish a go!
