Free Fish Knitting Pattern
I found a free fish knitting pattern in an old blog post while looking for baby crafts projects to keep me busy until spring. I was actually looking for baby bootie patterns when I found these instructions. I think the fish are just the right size to knit to use to make a tropical fish baby mobile.
It might look better to knit two for each fish and stitch the two together so that both sides look the same and the fishies would have more "body"! If I can figure out how to enlarge the pattern my plans are to knit enough to make a custom crib mobile and a pillow for the rocking chair in my soon-to-be born grandchild's nursery. If anybody could give me some ideas on how to enlarge the size of the fish, I would appreciate it since it will probably take more than just using chunky wool and large needles.
I made a tropical fish baby bedding set using colorful fabric and I think I have plenty of yarn on hand to make knitted fish for a mobile and the cushion. With a free fish knitting pattern and yarn I already have on hand, we can have a fully decorated nursery ready that cost very little, practically nothing!
If the pattern is easy enough and they work up fast, I might knit some up as baby bath scrubbies, a towel or a bath mat to give as baby shower gifts.
The blogger indicated that this
free pattern was her version of tesselated fish and not the version that was in Knitters Magazine.
Could Unique Baby Gear Ideas
provide the issue number for magazine that the tesselated fish knitting pattern is in? I think I might take a look to make a comparison to see which one I like best before I jump in.
