Crocheted Jellyfish Toy

I found the cutest crocheted jellyfish toy pattern on Pinterest that linked to With my granddaughter’s love of aquatic life I thought this would be a perfect project to make for her! I ended up making one for now and one to put away for Christmas!


The full pattern can be found at but I will copy and paste the pattern here as well. Thank you to yarnhild for such a cute pattern!

Here are my pieces of jellyfish after I finished crocheting them.

I sewed the tentacles on the inside of the back body piece and attached the safety eyes.

I finished mine a bit different than the pattern because my granddaughter is so young, I crocheted using single crochet around the outside of the round part of the body to attach the front to the back.

Then back stitched to close the bottom of the body, weaving in all the ends.

And here are my completed Crocheted Jellyfish toys!
