This is the original crochet whale pattern by Yevheniia Romanchuk.

This purchase is for personal purposes only. You may sell the finished toy you created with the help of these instructions, but you are NOT allowed to sell the pattern or copy, share or distribute it in digital or paper form. Thank you for your understanding.

Finished size

Using similar yarn and 2,5 mm crochet hook, mini whale is around 6 cm (2.3”) length.

SUPPLIES

1. Yarn: This example is crocheted from YarnArt Jeans yarn (cotton 55%, acrylic 45%, 50g = 160m), color – 33 (blue).

2. Crochet hook: 2,5 mm, or in accordance with the yarn you use.

3. A little piece of a different color yarn or stitch marker (I use first one).

4. Fiber filling.

5. А thick needle.

6. One pair of 5 mm black safety eyes.

7. Pins.

8. Scissors.

NOTES

Work in continuous rounds. Don’t join or turn if not instructed in the pattern.

Use a stitch marker (or a piece of yarn). Place it at the last (or first) stitch of the row and always move it up when working to the last (or first) stitches of the rows.

When finishing flippers, fin and tail leave a long yarn tail (around 20 cm) which you can use for sewing.

Don’t fill the stuffing into the flippers, fin and tail.
