Crochet gif: fish to sushi and back again.

Fish-to-Sushi Crochet – Fun with Amigurumi

I was surprised by a birthday, and so took out my hook to crochet this fish-sushi as a last minute gift.

Can you see how it works from the gif? The fish and the sushi are attached at the mouth/centre hole, and you can push the fish into the sushi, or the sushi into the fish, to change them from one to the other! It reminds me of a topsy-turvy doll I adored when I was a kid.

It only too an afternoon and a few scraps of yarn. It felt a little indulgent, making something I knew I liked, rather than something I knew the birthday girl would like.

I shouldn’t have worried. She loved it.

My friend said, “Rachel! You made this? Your skills are being wasted. You should be in the UN or something.”
I said, “I think making stupid gifts is the perfect use of my crochet skills, actually.” But what a compliment!

What do you think the crochet arm of the UN would do? Work towards World Peace through cuteness? I think I’d actually do pretty well there then.

This is the pattern I used, which was very easy to follow, but which I still mostly ignored. It’s a bad habit of mine, and my fishy amigurumi didn’t turn out quite as nicely as the one in the pattern pictures. I would have done better to follow it more closely – but I was having too much fun crocheting away to worry about that!

I made the gif using photoshop. Here’s how to make your own gif using photoshop. If you’ve used photoshop a bit before, it’s quite easy to do. If not, then it would be really quite tricky!

This post originally appeared on my personal blog. Going forwards, I plan to share some craftiness from the archives there on this blog.
