Sea Life - Jellies

Here is the fifth animal for my sea life baby mobile: a pair of jellyfish!

The jellies are designed to be anatomically correct with an outer body with legs and an inner gut with feeding tentacles.

    The little jellies are made in 2 parts: the body and the tentacles.

    They are stitched in Knit Picks Mighty Stitch in Wisteria and Sky, with a 4mm hook. Gauge is not important. A larger hook and thicker yarn will result in a larger amigurumi.

    The jelly's body is 3 inches long and 2 inches in diameter.

Row 1:  6 sc in a magic ring.
Row 2:  2 sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Row 3:  [sc, 2 sc in next st] repeat 6 times. (18 sts)
Row 4:  [sc 2, 2 sc in next st] repeat 6 times. (24 sts)
Row 5:  sc in each st around (24 sts)
Row 6:  sc in each st around (24 sts)
Row 7a:  In the back loops only: [sl st, ch 7, skip 1 ch, sl st 6 back along the ch, sl st] repeat 12 times.
Row 7b:  In the front loops of the same row: [sc, sc2tog] repeat 8 times.
     Tie off. (Fig. 1)

Row 1:  Flip the jelly inside out (Fig. 2). Join yarn to the 2nd round (Fig. 3) and sc around (Fig. 4). (12 sts)
Row 2:  sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Row 3:  sc2tog 6 times. (6 sts)
     Stuff lightly.
Row 4:  [sc2tog, ch 16, skip 1 ch, sl st 15 back down the chain] repeat 3 times.
     Tie off (Fig. 5). Flip jelly right side out. (Fig. 6)

  1. This is the best jellyfish pattern I think I've ever seen! Definitely need to make one... or maybe a few. :) Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to see the finished mobile!
