Crochet Seahorse

One day a crochet jellyfish and dolphin were swimming along when they met a seahorse.
I found the pattern for this little friend online (pattern available here).

To make him I used the last bit of Orange Chill yarn that I had in my bin, well there is a wee bit leftover for a bird beak or some other detailing if I need it, but other than that it is gone. I honestly never thought I would see the day; there is a lot of yarn on those big balls of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and when you buy one, you are really committing to the color.

Like I have said before, crocheting toys is addictive. In the last month I have made an owla froga jellyfish, a dolphin, and now a seahorse. And I still have a few toys that I want to make. Watch this space for more crocheted toys to make their debut.

  1. This little guy is so cute! To be honest, I wouldn't have looked twice at the original pattern. The colors that you chose are just perfect. Can't wait to see more of other toys!
