So I made this for a friend who is into marine biology for his birthday.
I got all the inspiration from google and pinterest
I learned how to crochet "ribs" and corkscrews
Most of the other specimen are just somehow crocheted in rounds with more or less increases
The red coral is armed with a wire that I crocheted around
I tried to use rather "tamed" colors, he is not too much into vivid ones (at least that is my guess)
Lets keep fingers crossed he likes it  Grin

He's going to love it and if he for some reason has lost his mind and doesn't want it, I'd be more than happy to have it live with me! Rocks so hard.
