Hate all that leftover yarn?  Well, me too!!!  And i can't stand throwing it out, so i made some fish instead.
I used 3-4 strands at the same time and a size P hook





If you feel like making the green or blue one, here is the pattern:

Big Green Fish (and Big Blue Fish)
Materials:

big size P hook (the grey plastic one at wal mart)

size J or K hook

any leftover crap yarn~ at least 2 colors (i used a combination of ww, chunky, sport, just whatever yarn you want to use)

Pattern:

Holding 3 or 4 strands of yarn together (whatever fits)

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 & 4: sc in each sc around (15 sc)

rd5: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 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)

rd9: 2sc in first sc, sc in next 4 sc around (30 sc)

rd10-19: sc in each sc around (30 sc)

(stuff fish now)

 chain 1, sc across the fish through both sides

*now chain 23, dtr in 4th chain from hook

going down the length of the chain, do a variety of dtrs, trs, dcs, all the way down to the last possible spot to crochet in,

slip stitch in 4th or 5th sc over*, chain 23 again and repeat from * to * till the end of the fish.

Slip stitch, fasten off, weave in loose ends.

Eyes (make two)

using a size J or K hook and 2 strands held together

5 sc in a ring, sl st to join

rd1: chain 1, 2 sc in each sc around, sl st to join (10 sc)

rd2: (switch colors) chain 1, 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around, sl st to join (15 sc)

Fasten off, weave in ends, sew to sides of the head.


Big blue/purple fish:

Materials

Same as above

Pattern:

Starting at tail end:

Chain 13

rd1: sc in 2nd chain from hook and across till last chain.  3 sc in last chain, working on other side of chain, sc across, 2 sc in last ch. (27 sc)

rd2 & 3: sc in each sc around (27 sc)

rd4: (sc2tog, sc in next 7 sc) 3 times (24 sc)

rd5: (sc2tog, sc in next 6 sc) 3 times (21 sc)

rd6: sc2tog, sc in next sc around (13? sc)

rd7-10: sc in each sc around (13 sc)

rd23: sc2tog, sc in next sc around (12 sc)

rd24: sc in each sc around (12 sc)

rd25: sc2tog around (6 sc)

fasten off, leave a long end, weave it around/through the mouth and braid or whatever~ makes it look like its on a line.

Eyes~ same as above

Please note: for the blue/purple fish the stitch count is not exact~ and it doesnt have to be!!
