Pattern Description:

My Little Blowfish is a pattern for knitting your very own blowfish, for those days when no one will buy you a pony. Make them for the jugglers in your family, or as a toy for the toddler in search of that special something to chew. Add a little untraditional holiday cheer to the top of your Douglas fir. Stuff them with garlic and hang them over your door to ward off vampires!

  • needles for circular knitting
  • about 70 yards of worsted weight yarn
  • other yarns may be used, yardage will vary
