Jellyfish Stew

Continuing the food theme, I suppose – had that old poetry episode of Arthur running in my head already while I was thinking of titles. Another toy for a baby at our friendly local yarn store. As you can see from this lighting it’s a paler yellow than that previous post – the same yellow cotton from the giraffe – and the smaller tentacles are the same yellow green of Kermit’s collar. Not a whole lot to talk about – the pattern is from Edafedd’s Darling But Deadly pattern set, and the whole thing is done in single crochet and chaining with clever use of increases for shaping. There’s a LOT of tentacles – eight green, three curly yellow – and so much sewing. Like, probably an hour at least, all told was spent on the sewing, since the tentacles are meant to be attached to the bottom before attaching it to the main body and I wanted to have them all done to figure out placement. And obviously the pieces had to be extra secure for a small child’s use. Only thing I had to change was since I was using lace weight for the green tentacles I did a row of single crochet rather than fastening off after the chain. Good pattern, if a bit long in the endless tentacles part. If I get a chance I totally want to do the blue ringed octopus from that set later.
