I LOVE that show ‘Rock of Love’!!  I saw the finale last night, and i was so glad to see him pick the only non-skank in the house!!  Anyhow, poor Daisy was all barfy on the boat and since i can relate i named this fishy ‘Seasick’!

  I made it for a cat toy swap i’m in over at ravelry.

 

Here’s a close up:

My cats love the big fish i made, so i wrote a smaller, almost identical version!

 

Materials:

size G hook

ww yarn ( i used red heart)

yarn needle

 

Pattern:

5 sc in a ring

rd1: 2sc in each sc around (10 sc)

rd2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15 sc)

rd3: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (20 sc)

rd4 & 5: sc in each sc around (20 sc)

rd6: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 3 sc around (25 sc)

rd7 & 8: sc in each sc around (25 sc)

Row1: Chain 1, sc across both thicknesses.  At the end of the ‘row’,

Row2:chain 25-32 (your choice), 2sc in 2nd chain from hook, *sc in next ch, 2sc in next ch* all the way down, sl st in 2nd sc over

Row3: repeat row 2 till the end of the row

sl st, fasten off.

 

I left an extra long tail and used it to embroider the detail, also stuff the fish before you sc across

 

I downloaded my camera and found the cutest pics that the girls took!!  And here they are:

  These two kitties are relaxing on Madaleine’s window sill

 

  Awwww!!  It’s Twinkletoes and one of the other cats sleeping in my window
