Fins the Fish by Stacey Trock, from 'Crocheted Softies' book
InstructionsAlthough book instructions don't require to stuff dorsal or side fins, I put a little bit of stuffing in them to make them sturdier.
This is a very easy pattern to make and it would be perfect for a beginner in amigurumi projects and great fun to make.

What was your inspiration?
After I shared my amigurumi crab in Facebook, one of my sisters asked me if I could make something for her. I sent hear a link of Stacey Trock's ''crocheted Softies' book and she chose the fish.
What are you most proud of?
Making something for my sister and the fact that I finished it in only 6 days, just working on it in the afternoons.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Although the book instructions don't require to stuff dorsal or side fins, I think they benefit from a bit of stuffing too in order to make them sturdier. Use your favourite colours and, of course, it doesn't have to be stripy, although I think it's more fun with stripes.
