  • the abbreviations can be found here
  • please keep in mind that amigurumi are worked in the round: so never join a round when done. I normally don’t give a stitch count at the end of a round – the stitches should always make up, if you are short on stitches or would need to make more than you have left please check your stitches, maybe even the row below.

BO

have a look at your fish’s body, do you see the last increase area at the top that goes “m2, sc8, m2” ? this will help you mark the middle / top side of your doll.

Now use pins to fix the dorsal fin in place, behind the color change line.

Start seaming and stuff as you do so BO, secure yarn ends

also see the pictures below to identify the top of your fish

chubby_schematic

left: Red circles mark row 13, which includes: (m2, sc8, m2) These two increases mark the spots above both eyes.

right: Front pin marks one increase as pictured on the left.

Place the dorsal fin centered between both increases and fix it at the behind of the fish’s body before you sew it to the body.

  1. make dr with 6 sts
  2. (m2, sc1) x3

10.  sc4, row not finished! BO

Stuff the caudal fin (not too tight) and sew it to body:

place former part B (larger one) right above the bind off row of body and seam neatly, don’t lay the ends flat but seam in a circle, this way the fin will pop up nicely and won’t flutter (if you wish so, seam end flat)
