Free Jellyfish Crochet Pattern | Hooked by Kati

These little darlings were first published in Happily Hooked Magazine. Since the rights have been returned to me, I am passing them on to you. These make great craft fair filler, and would be a great pattern to make a baby mobile.

This pattern can also be purchased as a Premium Pattern for only $3.00 (printable, ad-free, downloadable .pdf file) here.  The Premium Pattern also includes BONUS PATTERNS for a top hat and or sun bonnet to fit the jellies! It can also be found on Etsy or Ravelry.
