Step 1: Crochet the head and body
- Start with the head using light grey or blue yarn. Make a magic ring and crochet 6 crochets (sc) into the ring.

- Stuff the head and body firmly with fiberfill as you go.
Step 2: Crochet the fins
- Using black yarn, crochet two triangles for the dorsal fin and one smaller triangle for the tail fin. You can find tutorials for crocheting triangles online if you’re unfamiliar with the technique.
Step 3: Attach the fins and tail
- Sew the dorsal fin to the top of the back of the body.
- Sew the tail fin to the bottom of the back of the body.
Step 4: Crochet the eyes and mouth
- Attach the safety eyes to the head using embroidery floss.
- Using orange embroidery floss, embroider a small smiling mouth below the eyes.
Step 5: Add the finishing touches
- You can add details like gills using black embroidery floss.
- Weave in all loose ends, and you’re done!
