Pattern Notes

  • Due to some specialty stitches used and general knowledge in amigurumi, this pattern is considered to be intermediate difficulty.
  • This pattern is written in U.S terms.
  • The entire body of the pattern is done in a continuous round, do not slip stitch to close rounds or chain 1 unless instructed otherwise.
  • This pattern is completely no-sew; petals and tentacles are added directly onto the body of the pattern after completion.
  • Use a stitch marker to better keep track of the beginning or end of your rounds.
    • Use stitch markers to mark the post stitches for the tentacles on round 14.
    • Stitch markers may also be helpful on round 12 to keep track of the first and last front loops of the round for the petals.
  • Increase rounds are staggered to help keep a rounder shape on the body of the jellyfish.
  • Color changes should be done by completing the last stitch of the round with the new color.
  • When decreasing, use the invisible decrease technique to make the decreases blend in. If you are unsure about this technique, YouTube has plenty of tutorials for it!

Round 12 [24 Sts]: * 3 SC BLO, DEC BLO. Repeat from * until all Sts are worked.

Round 14 [12 Sts]: * 1 SC, DEC. Repeat from * until all Sts are worked.

Round 15 [6 Sts]: DEC around until all Sts have been worked.

Cut yarn, leaving a long tail to close the jellyfish. Finish stuffing firmly.

Use the front loops of round 15 to close the Jellyfish. Weave ends.

The body is now complete - continue to add petals and tentacles.


With the top of the jellyfish facing towards you, locate the front loop of the first St you marked on round 12.

Using CC1 (Pink), Sl St into the Front Loop found in the instructions above.

Starting in the next St, follow the instructions below. Each petal is a repeat of 3 stitches:

Stitch 1: Ch 1, DC, TR, TR, DC, Ch 1

Stitch 2: Sl St.

Stitch 3: Sl St.

Repeat Sts 1-3 around the whole Jellyfish until 1 St remains. Sl St.

There should be a total of 10 flower petals at the end.

Fasten off and secure, weave in ends.


Turn the project, so the top part (yellow) of the jellyfish is facing away from you, and the bottom (green) is facing towards you.

The tentacles are made in the posts of every other SC from round 14.

It may help to use stitch markers to evenly distribute the 6 tentacles around the bottom of the jellyfish.

Using CC2 (Green), Sl St into your chosen SC space.

Tentacle 1 [50 Sts]: Chain 26. In 2nd Ch from hook, * INC. Repeat from * until all Sts have been worked. Skip 1 St, Sl St into the next post of round 14.

Repeat Tentacle 1 (above) until there are 6 tentacles total.

Fasten off and tie the beginning and end tail in a knot to secure - weave in ends.

Final Touches - Embroidery

With the front of the jellyfish facing you, locate the direct center of the jellyfish between the eyes.

There should be 2 stitches between the two eyes - we will be embroidering the mouth through either side of these two stitches and the one directly below them.

Using black worsted weight yarn, thread your tapestry needle and insert into your jellyfish and out through the left stitch you found earlier.

Going over the mouth yarn left, insert the needle back into the same stitch the yarn was last pulled through and back out the original entry point.
