Squishy Fishy Crochet Pattern

Updated: Jul 29, 2023

These adorable little fish are perfect for kids & cats alike. The hand sewn eyes create less danger for choking with the little ones, & apparently according to a bunch of makers if you add a bit of catnip to the stuffing cats are going crazy for these little toys.

You can also find a video tutorial for this pattern on YouTube, but don't say you weren't warned. I am NOT good at making videos. I am getting better but my set up is seriously lacking so it's really hard to get good shots.







These silly little "Squishy Fishy" friends also make great stress balls. My children like to use them to play some silly game they made up called "Flying Fish", which I do not understand the rules to and frankly I don't think they do either. Basically, it has something to do with chucking them through the house, coming as close as possible to breaking something or hitting me, without actually getting in trouble.




Here's what you'll need to get started.......


Materials:

Red Heart Super Saver Yarn(approx. 25 yds)

H(5 mm) Hook

Scissors

Needle

Stuffing


Abbreviations(US Terms):

SK = Skip

sts = Stitches

ST = Stitch

SL= Slip Stitch

CH = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet


Note: You will be working in a continuous round up to the tail fin portion. Finished fish should measure about 5” from nose to tail fin point.


To begin create a Magic Ring

ROUND 1: place 8 SC in the Magic ring(8 total)


ROUND 2: place 2 SC in the first ST, repeat the pattern (1 SC in the next ST, 2 SC in the next ST) around, end with 1 SC in the last ST(12 total)


ROUND 3: place 1 SC in each ST (12 total)


ROUND 4: repeat (1 SC in the next ST, 2 SC in the next ST) around (18 total)


ROUND 5: place 1 SC in each ST (18 total)


ROUND 6: repeat (2 SC in the next ST, 1 SC in the next ST) around (27 total)


ROUND 7-13: place 1 SC in each ST (27 total)


ROUND 14: Repeat(SC in the next ST, SC the next 2 sts together) 9 times


ROUND 15: place 1 SC in each ST (18 total)


ROUND 16: Repeat(SC in the next ST, SC the next 2 sts together) 6 times


Stop here and sew a black X on either side of your fish at about round 5 to make your eyes.

Hint: Fold your fish in half with your last ST directly on the top to align your eyes. Stuff your fish. Don't over stuff!!
