Flappy Flounder doesn’t get his name from the slim profile and awkward locomotion; it’s because flounder are notorious as the gossips of the ocean. - cheezombie on Knitty
Exact gauge is not important for this project; however, it is important to knit tightly to obtain a firm fabric (this is more important for eyes than for body/fins). Use needles that are several sizes smaller than size recommended on ball band. Multiple needles listed, only uses one size depending on the yarn used.
Uses coloured yarn for body, white for eyes and black yarn or embroidery thread for eyes.
