Free version available as video tutorial on my blog here. Note: Free version is a video tutorial only, and shows 1 of the 4 fish scale designs. For all 4 fish scale designs, please download the written PDF pattern.

The Mosaic Goldfish is a fast and no-sew amigurumi project that includes 4 different scale designs, allowing you to crochet a variety of fish. More customizations can be done by using different yarn color combinations, yarn weights, and yarn fibers. Stitches featured in creating the fish scales include the use of drop stitches, puff stitches, and working in back loops only.

This underwater sea creature can be made into a keychain or as a realistic stuffed animal toy for children to play with. It is great as a birthday gift, Christmas or holiday gift, or as craft fair products. Girls and boys alike will love these unisex and gender neutral stuffies! Make it in your recipient’s favorite colors, or turn it into a colorful rainbow fish.

This 13-page PDF pattern includes detailed written instructions and 55+ step-by-step progress photos to guide you through the doll making process.

Cute fish

Haven’t been able to make the fish yet but, I have read the pattern. I feel it is clear and I should have no problems. Looking forward to making some bright fish for a friend.

Cutest Fish Ever

The instructions are clear and easy to follow. There is lots of room for personalizing each fish with your own color combinations and yarn weight. If using fingerling, it creates the perfect pocket pal to carry around.
