Crochet Jellyfish ~ FREE PATTERN!

 

I’ve been making so many of these Jellyfish lately that the pattern is imprinted on my brain! 🙂

Have you seen the Jellyfish craze all over the internet? When I got my first order from a fellow expecting Mama, I went on the hunt for the perfect pattern. There are many adorable jellyfish patterns out there but none had everything I was looking for so I decided to create my own!

They work up fairly quickly, measuring 11″ long from top of head to end of tentacles and 4 1/2″ wide(the head). My daughter who is almost 3 absolutely loves these jellyfish! She kept stealing each one as I finished them to give the a hug. I quickly had to make one for her so I could package up the rest!

For this project you will need…

  1. Worsted weight yarn(I used Red Heart Super Saver)
  2. G hook
  3. Tapestry needle & scissors
  4. Safety eyes

Starting at the top of the jellyfish head:

Round 1: Make a magic circle and SC 8 times inside circle, pull to close, do not join, use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds. (8 SC)

Round 2: 2 SC in each st around (16 SC)

Round 3: *1 SC, INC* around (24 SC)

Round 4: *2 SC, INC* around (32 SC)

Round 5: *3 SC, INC* around (40 SC)

Round 6: *4 SC, INC* around (48 SC)

Rounds 7-14: SC in each st around (48 SC)

Round 15: *4 SC, DEC* around (40 SC)

Round 16: SC in each st around (40 SC)

Round 17: *3 SC, DEC* around (32 SC)

Round 18: SC in each st around (32 SC)

Round 19: Sc in 1st st, skip 1 st, 5 DC in next st, *skip 1 st, SC in next st, skip 1 st, 5 DC in next st* around, ending with a slip st in the 1st SC, fasten off, weave in end.

Attach safety eyes 2 rows above the shell edging and 8 SC apart, embroider a mouth.

Bottom:

Round 1: Make a magic circle and SC 8 times inside circle, pull to close, do not join, use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds. (8 SC)

Round 2: 2 SC in each st around (16 SC)
Round 3: *1 SC, INC* around (24 SC)
Round 4: *2 SC, INC* around (32 SC)
Round 5: *3 SC, INC* around (40 SC)

Fasten off leaving a long tail to be used later to attach bottom piece to the head.

Tentacles: Make 8

Ch 50, 3 SC in 2nd ch from hook and each chain to end, fasten off, use tails to attach tentacles to the bottom piece, tails should be coming out on the “wrong side” of your work.

Time to assemble the jellyfish!

Start stuffing the jellyfish head but not too full. Using your tapestry needle and long tail whip stitch the bottom piece to round 18 of head, leave a small gap, finish stuffing, sew up gap and weave in end. All done!

Pattern for star:
Magic circle: 5 sc, join to 1st sc. *Ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in last ch, sl st in next st*, repeat around for 5 total points, leaving long tail for sewing.

  2. Working on my first one! Can you tell me what size safety eyes I need???
    Thanks in advance!!!!

  3. Love this pattern. Unable to print from my tablet, would you please email me a copy to the following addy: airsag3@gmail.com. Thank you for your time and attention in this matter. Sherry

  4. Love this pattern! Very easy to follow. My grandson stole the one I made for his mom. She told me he is obsessed with the octopus I made for him and he took her jellyfish as well, so now I have to make her another one.

  5. I love this pattern! Thank you for sharing your talent and this beautiful pattern. Is this pattern available on Ravelry? I would like to feature this pattern on my blog and social media accounts featuring the adorable octopuses I have made using our pattern if that would be ok with you?

  6. I’m having troubles and can’t seem to figure out what I’m doing wrong; instead of being round my jellyfish head starts looking wavy and rippely. I’ve tried using a bigger hook but it gets worse 😣 any advice?

  7. Shawna Atkinson:

    I’m not sure why yours is coming out wavy…maybe try this…

    Instead of doing the increases in the same spot, try alternating, so first you’ll do *1 sc, inc* then next round do *inc, sc 2* then next round do *sc 3, inc* then next round do * inc, sc 4*

    As long as the increases are spaced apart evenly then you should have a flat circle before working “down” the head. I hope this helps!!

  8. Would you please send me jellyfish pattern to my email address. I am having trouble printing it. Kind regards Delia Appleton

  9. Hey there! I started making one of your adorable little jellies, but I’m coming out with odd numbers on the rows instead of even numbers… what am I doing wrong?
