Bernat Cottontots Solid

He’ll be shipping off to Erin for HOHNE. Part of my Stash Bust Challenge, 2013.

Blue, approx. 240 yards

Used thinner yarn and smaller hook than pattern called for. Gauge with hdc, 3”=10 stitches, 8 rows.

Body Adjustments:

  • Because of smaller hook/yarn, adjusted body by working hdc in the round.
  • Did not do last increase and did not complete last 6 rows.
  • Worked a row of reverse sc as last row.

Caudal Fin:
Worked as written with H hook

Dorsal Fin:
Worked as written with H hook

Pectoral Fins Adjustments:
Came out to small with my yarn and hook so I adjusted.

  • Worked separately then sewed to body at a slight angle.

  • Worked with one decrease per row (first stitch) for 11 rows then worked an edge of sc before sewing on body. I sewed them a little farther back than I should have. Next time I’ll make them closer to the middle.
