This is a great pattern by Kate Wood. Cookies (named because of his bowl) turned out beautifully!! The Fancy Goldfish is a free pattern that you can download via Ravelry.
I was looking for a smaller fish but this one is so adorable I just bought a new bowl for him to live in. The shape and size of this “cookie jar” works. I just added a few water-blue marbles and this funky pipe cleaner and volia! a home for the blue fish.
When my daughter went to university last year we had a good laugh about the rule regarding pets. No pets were allowed except “non-dangerous fish”. Our first thought was, “Why did they have to make that specific of a rule? Did someone bring a pet jelly fish one year?”
Here we are a year later and I finally got around to creating her pet ‘non-dangerous’ fish.
I love how the different light changed the shade of blue.
I enjoyed working with this thread. It’s so soft. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the details about this crochet thread. It’s from my stash.
The plan was to use all four of these to make a school of fish but my daughter doesn’t have room for a full tank of crochet fish!
