The next pattern in the 2022 Roly-Poly Mystery Bundle is Hubert the Blob Fish!

Hubert’s crochet pattern is free here on the blog, but the best way to create this adorable blob fish is with his Premium Pattern in the Roly-Poly Mystery Bundle.

Hubert the Blob Fish will definitely convince you that blog fish can look cute! His blah smile and big nose, will have you smiling each time you see him.

Hubert is just the under water friend to make with the other friends in the Roly Poly Mystery Bundle. He’s small, pudgy, and fits in your hand! I think he’s the perfect friend to carry around or have at your desk to keep you company. Wouldn’t he be so cute in his own little fish bowl?

All about the Roly-Poly Mystery Bundle

The 2022 Roly-Poly Mystery Bundle features 12 amigurumi patterns created in collaboration between Anvi’s Granny and Hooked by Kati.

The Roly-Poly Mystery Bundle will have twelve patterns: 6 designed by Joy from Anvi’s Granny and 6 designed by Kati from Hooked by Kati.

We chose our favorite animals (some real, some fantasy) and made them round, pudgy, and small enough to hold in your hand.

The best way to get them all is in their Premium printable PDF format, and at a HUGE discount, by purchasing the Roly Poly Mystery Bundle! When you buy the whole collection for 40% off, you will get all the patterns up this month and every new pattern will be automatically added to the Raverly file every month! That’s TWELVE patterns for our cute, round, roly-poly friends.

Patterns will be released (and added to existing bundles) on the first Friday of every month.

Hubert’s pattern is FREE here on the blog, in text-only format. But because of the no-sew assembly, I would highly recommend you upgrade your creative experience with the Premium Pattern.

Construction

On top of Hubert being the cutest blob fish, guess what the best part of this pattern is?

He is a no sew pattern!

That’s right! There is no sewing involved! The pattern starts with make his nose and fins, then his body starts with the mouth and the fins and nose are worked into the stitches as his body takes shape.

This might sound nuts, but it isn’t! And it’s easier than you think. The Premium Pattern makes it super easy to understand as well.

You Need to Know:

Chains (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), Right side (RS), increases and decreases, mattress stitch sewing. Be eager to learn and ready to have fun!

For a quick refresher of these basic skills, go to www.hookedbykati.com/basics

You Will Practice Basic Techniques:

  • How to make a 3-dimensional object in crochet
  • How to shape using increases and decreases
  • How to attach parts with a no-sew method

Supply List

  • Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn, 100% acrylic, worsted weight, 285 yds/4.5 oz/127.5
    g, Rose (ROSE), < 1 ball; Orchid (ORCH), < 1 ball.
  • F (3.75 mm) hook
  • Two 12mm solid black safety eyes
  • Polyfil stuffing
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch markers

Measurements

7” wide x 6” tall

Gauge

9 sts x 9 rows in sc = 2” x 2”

Pattern Notes

  • Work in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch unless otherwise specified by the pattern.
  • For best results, assemble parts in order as directed.
  • The third loop of a hdc is created from the yarn over that is on the wrong side of the stitch. When working flat, we usually find this on the front of the work. However, when working in the round, this horizontal loop is behind the stitch, on what would be the inside of the work.
  • When instructed, an additional sc(s) will be added at the end of a round to move the starting stitch of the next round to the left (clockwise). This does not change the stitch count of the round. It only moves the starting point.
  • Weave in attachment ends at very end of project in case pieces require repositioning.
