You can knit this little fish as a cat toy, or make a shoal of fish to hang from a baby crib mobile.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the fish, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The fish eyes are knitted bobbles, and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern.


  • Three straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight) in gold and white; less than 30g in each colour
  • Toy filling
  • Stitch holder
  • Small buttons for eyes

SAFETY NOTE: If you are making your fish for a cat or young child to play with, then please do not use buttons for eyes as these could be pulled off and swallowed. Instead you could embroidering the eyes in black yarn.
