The size of the jellyfish depends on the yarn and hook size you choose. Worked from the recommended yarn size and hook the cap turns out a diameter of 7 cm (3 inch) and a total lenght of approx. 20 cm (8 inch) .

Abbreviations (US terms)

ch = chain stitch
dec = decrease (sc together 2 sts)
inc = increase (2 sc into the same st)
rnd(s) = round(s)
sc = single crochet
slst = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)
[...] ...x = repeat instructions written in brackets as a sequence as often as given after the closing bracket
(...) = number of sts made in the current rnd or row


Leave a long yarn tail for hanging the jellyfish and make a magic loop. Crochet in a continuous spiral.

01: sc 6 into the magic loop (6)
02: [inc] 6x (12)
03: [sc 1, inc] 6x (18)
04: [sc 2, inc] 6x (24)
05: [sc 3, inc] 6x (30)
06: [sc 4, inc] 6x (36)
07: [sc 5, inc] 6x (42)
08.-11.: (4 rnds) sc 42
12: [dec, sc 5] 6x (36)
13: slst 36

Cut the yarn and weave in the end.

Beaded Threads

For your jellyfish you need 3 beaded crochet chains in total. One chain with 15 beads and further two chains holding 10 beads. Thread the required number of beads onto the yarn before you start to chrochet.

Chain with 10 beads:
[ch 1 with a bead, ch 2 without a bead] 10x, ch 8, cut the yarn

Chain with 15 beads:
[ch 1 with a bead, ch 1 without a bead] 15x, ch 12, cut the yarn


Due to the one-sided increases the tentacle will twist as you go. Crochet 2 tentacles in different sizes:

1st tentacle
Start with a foundation chain out of 31 ch. Insert hook into the 2nd stitch from hook, inc in that stitch and into the next 14 sts along the chain. Repeat the following sequence until the end of the chain: [sc 1, inc in next st]

2nd tentacle
Start with a foundation chain out of 36 ch, then follow the instructions of the first tentacle.


Inside the body, sew the beaded chains and the tentacles in the middle of the cap. Draw the remaining thread from the beginning through the tip of jellyfish's cap towards outside.

Knot your jellyfish on a piece of driftwood, a mobile or a lamp. If you want the jellyfish to float, use a clear nylon thread like fishing line to hang.
