Fancy Goldfish Varieties
This Adobe Pdf instant digital download file is my original design crochet pattern for five varieties of fancy goldfish. The written pattern is illustrated with photos showing every step in the construction of the fish. It includes instructions for an Oranda, Bubble Eye, Celestial, Fantail, and Black Moor Telescopic Eye.
The pattern is crocheted in a continuous spiral and requires knowledge of the following stitches (including increases and decreases): chain, slip stitch, and single crochet.
Item size will depend on the weight of yarn used. All of mine were crocheted using worsted weight yarns:
Celestial - Carron Simply Soft with size F hook - 7" long, 2 1/2" wide between the two eyes, and 3" high including the fins
Bubble Eye - Red Heart Soft with size F hook - 8 1/2" long, 4 1/2" wide between the two eyes, and 3 3/4" high including the fins.
Fantail - I Love This Cotton with size G hook - 7 1/2" long, 2 1/2" wide not including fins, and 5 1/2" high including the fins
