Coin Pocket - Monster Fish

from Daniela Nii

Coin Pocket - Monster Fish

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Working in the round on double-pointed needles

Pattern Description:

Are you looking for a quick gift that brings smiles to a child's face?

It works up quickly and since it is a Monster Fish, it is not picky in how it turns out. :)

And on top of it, isn't it a great way to introduce your child to the value of money, perhaps a small allowance or the concept of saving, spending and sharing (donation)?

The pattern also comes with a photo tutorial on how to sew in the zipper and a short description on hand felting.


Not crucial for this project.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • ~4" across body when felted (depends on how long you felt it)


  • Worsted-weight (#4) feltable wool yarn - ~75 yds for body, ~25 yds for fins
  • US 9 (5.5 mm) set of 5 double-pointed needles (dpns)

You Will Also Need:

  • 2 buttons (eyes)
  • a bit of felt (eyes)
  • 1 stitch marker
  • sewing needle & thread (eyes & zipper)
  • optional: key chain clasp
  • 7" or longer sport zipper (big teeth, will be cut to size)
