The Little Blue Guy

Last week I mentioned the amigurumi jellyfish. I finally managed to finish it. (If you'd like the pattern, just click on the link.)


Isn't he (she? it?) cute? That's the shot I posted on Instagram. (I'm @ZiziRho if you'd like to follow me.) This next shot didn't look so hot on my phone, but once I did a bit of tweaking, it turned out pretty good...


The pool in the background with the blue of the piece kind of all blended together. I'm not sure what the Picasa software did. I clicked on "I'm feeling lucky", and this came out.

As for the gloves, I still haven't delivered them. (Last week was kind of busy between TV and internet issues, the cold I whined about, and, well, check back Wednesday to find out what else I was doing last week.) Maybe I'll get them to her this week? I hope so.

Should I attempt to make more of the jellyfish and sell them? Anyone interested in one? (I will take orders.)

    1. Thanks. It was all the editing software. The original image was a lot of blue, with the jellyfish hard to see.

  3. That is really cute. You should definitely make some—I bet they would sell very well.

  5. Love the jellyfish! Yes make more and let us know when they are in your shop! I personally think orange would be a nice bright color for them.

  6. Aww! How cute! :) Love the pool in the background!

    I'd love to see more jelly fish. I think they would be so cute all hanging together! Unfortunately I have no need for a jellyfish… But they are still adorable. :)

    1. The pool in the background was actually my father's idea. Must give him props for the good idea.

    1. Amigurumi is really rather simple. This would make a great second project ;)

  10. I don't think you need another "that is so cool" response. But I will say it, anyway. That little guy is so cool, and I crochet. (Hurray!) Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I provided the link to the pattern. It's very well written (although I worked it in a spiral rather than chaining one every round). With pictures. Very clear. You could totally make one yourself!

  11. That turned out really well! You must be pleased. Are they very hard to make?

    1. No, not very. There's a subset of crochet called amigurumi which is mostly critters with those eyes and faces. It's a typical amigurumi pattern. A few techniques that go with it, but once those are learned, anything in this type of pattern can be done.

    1. Don't be impressed. I just followed the pattern. The amazing designer deserves your kudos.

  16. Very cool jellyfish! I think there's a market in CA. for fun sea creatures. A craft fair would do well have your wares on hand.
