Ahoy there! Scuba diving can be tricky when you’re a knitter - that woollen wetsuit seemed like such a good idea on dry land but 20,000 leagues under the sea? Hmm. But, worry not, because you can still get all nautical with your needles thanks to these fishy friends!

There are four colourful cuties to knit: choose from tiddlers Timothy the Turbot (19cm/7½in from nose to tail) and Pauline the Pollock (21.5cm/8½in from nose to tail) or land yourself something a little larger with Harold the Haddock (35.5cm/14in from nose to tail) and Felicity the Flounder (29cm/11½in from nose to tail). Whichever you go for, they’re bound to be a keeper!

All the pieces are knitted flat on straight needles and seamed afterwards.

You’ll be pleased to know that this pattern has been reviewed by a professional technical editor to ensure that it’s super-easy to follow!
