J is for Jellyfish: Crochet Jellyfish Applique

Here is Day 10 of my 26 Days of Crochet Animal Alphabet Appliques!
J is for Jellyfish

This jolly Jellyfish will happily hang out on your alphabet afghan :) Or use him for a any sea-themed crochet project or party. Why am I suddenly imagining a long string of jellyfish bunting?! Not sure what you would use it for but I think it would be cute!

– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in pink and little bit of black and white for the eye and mouth
РSize G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqu̩ and vice versa)
– Tapestry needle
Magic Ring Tutorial
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC =  Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet

Jellyfish Applique:

Magic ring, ch 2 and make 8 DC in ring, pull tight but don’t join. You should have a half circle, ch 2, turn
Round 2: 2 DC in each stitch (16 DC)
Continue to sc along the bottom of half circle, ch 1, turn. I ended up with 8 stitches along the bottom but it doesn’t really matter how many you end up with as long as you try to evenly space the legs.
Row 3: 2 SC in first stitch, *ch 20, slip stitch down chain join with SC in next stitch, SC in next stitch, repeat from * 3 more times. You should end up with 4 legs.

Use your tapestry needle to stitch on a black mouth.

First stitch on a little bit of white for the eyes and then over-lap with a little bit of black for the eyeball.

    This jellyfish is great to sew on a summer bag or grocery tote. I'll crochet it with a big smile.
    Thank you!

    I wish you a pleasant sunday, Margaret

    Those boxy little cars in photo 1 are a blast from the past. Do you miss them? The miionCo-per has made tiny chic in the USA! Love both photos.
