Crochet amigurumi jellyfish


A simple crochet amigurumi jellyfish. I am working on my crochet underwater sea animal kingdom mobile and the next animal is the jellyfish. The mobile will be tied to a foam wreath that I need to prepare. A perfect crochet summer decoration.


I was looking at patterns for the jellyfish and nothing was as I wanted. So I broke the crochet jellyfish into basic shapes and came up with the pattern. A sphere, a skirt and some curly arms.

The stitches used in this pattern are:

  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain stitch
  • sc – single crochet stitch
  • inc – single crochet increase stitch (make 2 in 1)
  • dc – double crochet stich


Starting with a magic ring and working in continues rounds

  • 1 – sc x6 [6]
  • 2 – inc x6 [12]
  • 3 – {sc, inc} x6 [18]
  • 4 – {2sc, inc} x6 [24]
  • 5 – {3sc, inc} x6 [30]
  • 6 – {4sc, inc} x6 [36]
  • 7– 10 sc x36 [36]
  • 11 – {4sc, dec} x6 [30]
  • 12- sc x30 [30]
  • 13a BLO {3sc, dec} x6 [24]
  • 14a {2sc, dec} x6 [18]
  • 15a {sc, dec} x6 [12]
  • 16a {dec} x6 [6]
  • You continue doing the arms. Description below.

  • 13b FLO sc x30, sl st [30]
  • 14b {skip 1 sc from r.13b , 6 dc in the next sc from r.13b , skip 1 sc from r.13b, sc st in the next sc from r.13b } x7, finish off – from the last cluster of 6dc and the join together with a sl st is a space of 2 but when joining and tightening together the gap is not seen.

The crochet jellyfish arms are worked with now sewing or cutting. How to do that check out the YouTube tutorial. The number of arms can be anything from 10 to 20.

For 1 arm:

ch 16, in the 2nd stitch from the end:

sc, inc, inc, sc, sc, inc, inc, sc, inc, inc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc


sc, inc, inc, sc, inc, inc, sc, inc, sc, inc, inc, sc, sc, sc

The only rule is, let the last 5 stitches be sc because you sew that part of the arm to the body of the crochet jellyfish.

If you want it curlier, do only inc, if you want it flatter do only sc. I did a mixture of all and I made them without cutting the yarn – I used slip stitches to move around the bottom of the crochet jellyfish.

Fun Facts

Old filet patterns used a treble or triple stitch vertically but chained two between the vertical stitches. This was to prevent distortion of some patterns. Chain stitches use less yarn than double crochet stitches, which results in a visual difference in appearance between the two kinds of stitch.
