    Egg Cozies - Hungry Fishes

    Here's a little something for in between times: Colorful hungry fishes that have it in for your boiled eggs. Good thing their eyes where bigger than their stomaches (or in this case: their mouths). :)

    Quickly crocheted and perfect to make good use of scrap-yarn.

    Have fun with eyes (crocheted and/or embroidered) and teeth (round or pointy). You can even add a tongue. All of it is described in this pattern.

    Create your own unique little swarm.

    Skill Level:

    The size depends on your gauge, chosen type of yarn and crochet hook size. I'm using Puppets Lyric yarn (8/8, DK/Light-Worsted) from Coats and a 3 mm hook. With that I get the following size/s: 9 cm

    used Techniques
    * magic ring
    * chain
    * single crochet
    * half double crochet
    * double crochet
    * slip stitch
    * increase and (invisible) decrease
    * crocheting in front loops (instructions included)
    * crocheting in back loops (instructions included)
    * crocheting back and forth in rows
    * crocheting in continuous rounds (rounds are not joined)
    * changing yarn-color (instructions included)
    * basic sewing (sewing on body-parts, closing openings etc)
    * basic embroidery (i.e. eyes, mouth etc)

    The pattern is very detailed. Almost every single step/stitch is explained in words and pictures. Special characteristics are explained step-by-step (i.e. crocheting the teeth on). You see, nothing can go wrong! :)

    1) The pattern is mine. Do not (re)sell this pattern, including translations to other languages and modifications; do not redistribute, including publishing on the internet. 2) The finished figure/item is yours. :) Feel free to sell the finished products, handmade by yourself (no mass production). I'd love it if you would refer to my pattern/shop when doing so. Thank you! :)
