Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Fish Amigurumi – Free Pattern!

Crocheted amigurumi fish patternOne thing I love about amigurumi is how fast it is to work. You can sit down with a hook and a bit of string, and in no time at all, have a cute little creature, like this fish amigurumi!

Confession time: I’ve never made anything so small before, but now I’m hooked! I made this fishy as a gift for a friend, but I think they’d make cute earrings too…

This fish amigurumi is teeny. Seriously, it’s small. The body is worked in only five rounds of sock-weight yarn. Why not work up a whole school of them? In fact, that’s just about what I did, as I hooked up some buddies for my little fishy for a gift.

Crocheted sea creatures, including fish and a mermaid

You can see some prototype-fishes, a mermaid, and a octopus in the background!

Of course, if tiny fish aren’t your thing (why not) you can upsize the pattern, either by using a bigger yarn and hook. Beginners might like to pick worsted weight yarn and a 5mm hook.

Another way to upsize the pattern is by working more increases. Just crochet to the circle formula described here until your fishy is the size you want it, and work equivalent decreases at the tail end. The tail and fins are just fans you can work to any size you like!

So let’s go fishing! I’d love to see if you make one of these – leave a comment, or tag me on instagram if you do.

Free Pattern: Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Fish Amigurumi

A US single crochet is equivalent to a UK double crochet. I learned to crochet the American way, so that’s the terminology I use! Because we’re creating amigurumi, we will work in spirals, rather than rounds. See my techniques page for more.

You’ll Need

  • Scraps of sock-weight yarn
  • 2mm crochet hook
  • Darning needle and scissors for finishing

Body and Tail

  • Single crochet (SC) four times into a magic ring. Pull tight and slip stitch to the first stitch to form a circle. (4 stitches) 
  • SC twice into every SC. (8 stitches) 
  • SC into every SC for for two rounds. (8 stitches) 
  • Decrease four times (4 stitches)  – this might be rather tricky, just decrease as much as you can. This is the fish’s rear end, so next we make the tail. To do so, without fastening off:
  • Chain three (counts as one double crochet) 
  • Double crochet four times into the base of the chain. Fasten off. 

Fins and Finishing

  • Dorsal fin: Loop the yarn through the back of the fish. Chain two. Half double crochet three. Fasten off. 
  • Fin: Chain three, double crochet 1 into the base of the chain. Fasten off. Repeat on other side. 
  • Weave in ends, and draw a face on with a fine-tipped marker. Admire your fishy!

    Love the simple pattern of a little fish. I do miniature crochet so mine is a lot smaller. Even so it worked up so quickly and required no modification. I was hoping to send you a picture to show you how tiny it could be but the best I can do is send a link to mine. Here it is

    Perhaps someone would like to make it even smaller. I am confident they would love it.
    Thank you for sharing this pattern.
