Hello to everyone,
The education of little children who open their eyes to the world is very important. While we buy toys for them to have fun, we should also take care that they are educational. This pattern you will make will be a great opportunity to get to know and love sea creatures.
Rainbow Sea Slug Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern
You can see the sea slug rainbow colors on it. The green curved mustaches are wonderfully done. The similarity of the fins on the bottom so that it can swim on the sea floor is amazing. Pink ears and tail are not forgotten. It will be one of the most colorful toys in your child’s room.

Place eyes between rounds 7 and 8, leaving 15 holes between them. Making sure they are in the front of the body. Look to pictures below for help. If you want the sunken eye look, do not place the backs of the eyes on until round 21. TIP! You may have to adjust the eye placement depending on yarn and hook size you use.

Start stuffing the body firmly
Now for the eyes. Stuff the body well. Cut a long piece of yarn and remove the eyes. Place the needle in the hole where the first eye was and thread the needle into a hole next to the eye hole. Go back and forth between each eye hole repeating the process from the first eye. Pull slightly on the yarn after going through each hole. Do this about 3 times on each side until you reach the look you want. Follow the pictures for help. There is also a youtube video I have for
extra help on this process. To place the backs of the eyes you will need to remove most of the stuffing to place the washers on the eyes then re stuff it.
22. (4 sc, dec) x 6= 30
23. (3 sc, dec) x 6= 24
24. (2 sc, dec) x 6= 18

3-11. sc in each st around
I do not stuff my antennaes, I use a pipe cleaner instead. Cut a pipe cleaner in half and fold it in half and twist it. Insert the pipe cleaner into the antennae. Cut off any excess. Fold the antennae in half and sc the opening closed.

1. sl st in 1st ch to make a ring= 8
2. sc in each st around= 8
3. (ch 8, sc in 2nd ch and across, sl st in next st) x 8
F/O and leave a long tail for sewing
Head and Body:
1. For the sleepy eye look: Cut a long strand of blue or teal yarn. Thread your needle and insert into a hole in between the eyes. Bring the needle up to a higher corner on the eye. Bring the needle around the top of the eye and insert the needle into a hole on the side of the eye. Repeat this around 4 more times to create that look. Repeat for the 2nd eye and weave in any yarn tails.
2. Cut a long strand of white yarn. Thread your needle and insert the needle into a hole on the head. Bring the needle up to a hole beneath the sleepy eye. Wrap the yarn around the bottom of the eye. Insert the needle into a hole on the opposite side and repeat for the 2nd eye. Weave in any yarn tails.
3. Cut a long strand of green yarn. Right in between the eyes, embroider a green nostril. Insert the needle into a hole on the head. Wrap the yarn around 2 stitches, in a slant. Repeat for the 2nd nostril. Weave in the yarn tails.
Antennaes and smile:
1. Cut a strand of black thread. Insert the needle into a hole on the side of the face. Make a cheeky smile.
2. Pin the antennaes on the top of the head above the eyes.
3. Sew the antennaes onto the head.
1. Sew your gills together into a ring shape. Pin the gills onto the back of the body.

You can use different eye and nose sizes. You might have to adjust the placements if you change the sizes. You can use different hook sizes and weights of yarn. It will just change the size of your slug and you might need to adjust eye and nose placement. How you stuff matters! The type of stuffing you use, how you stuff, all this matters on how your slug turns out. I prefer Polyfil stuffing but you can use other types.
