This pattern is available for free.

After seeing “Finding Dory”, I really, really wanted a beluga whale. As much as I thought Bailey was a bit silly, I liked him a lot! So of course, I had to crochet one.

A brief look on the Internets and Ravelry told me that there was NARY A FREE PATTERN IN SIGHT.

Clearly, we need ourselves some beluga whale!

He has a pleasantly tubby profile, a lovely little dorsal ridge, and a very silly smile.

Completed size: 15cm

Difficulty: Easy to Intermediate

He is worked circularly in one piece because nobody likes joining a hundred fiddly bits. As a result, he has a bit of a twist to his body which gives him a little bit of attitude.

You will need:
White DK yarn of your choice - I recommend cotton because I like the texture.
Crochet hook 3.5mm - I used Japanese size 5/0 because it’s my favourite double sided hook, the closest size is 3.5mm
Black or navy embroidery floss (single strand) - sewing thread will do if you double it up.
1 stitch marker
Tapestry needle and sewing needle for finishing
Polyester fibre

I did not measure exact yardage but you don’t need very much as he is only 15cm long.

The pattern is free to access on my blog, The Crooked Needle.
