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! :)
