I got the itch to make another sea creature! This is the Blue Sea Star (or Blue Linckia). It looks a little different from other sea stars because of its tubular arms & bright blue colouring. Naturally it was the colour that sold me!  Wink





Amigurumi Blue Sea Star   

150 yrds Cascade 220 wool
Size 6 knitting needles (2 circs or 1 long one for magic loop)
Polyester stuffing

Note: It is necessary to work this either on two circulars, or magic loop. Also gauge is not necessary. All that is important is that it is worked tight enough so that stuffing wont poke through.

Arm: CO 2 sts. Put one st on each needle.
Round 1: Kfb twice (4 sts)
Round 2: Kfb four times (8 sts)
Round 3: *Kfb, k 2, kfb, rep from * on second needle (12 sts)
Round 4: *Kfb, k 4, kfb, rep from * on second needle (16 sts)
K every round plain until arm measures 5.5 from tip. Cut thread. Put sts onto spare thread. Stuff with polyester stuffing.
Make 4 more arms the same way. DO NOT CUT THREAD on last arm.

Top of the Body: *K2tog, k 4, ssk, leave rem 8 sts on thread, rep from * on the next arm. Continue until all 5 arms have been attached. Reattach to work in the round (30 sts)
Next round: K plain
Next round: *K2tog, k 2, ssk, rep from * across round (20 sts)
Next round: K plain
Next round: *K2tog, ssk, rept from * across round (10 sts)
Next round: K plain
Draw thread through sts.

Make the bottom of the body the same way as the top, using the 8 sts left over on the thread. Stuff body before drawing sts shut. There may be small holes between the arms. Dont worry, just sew them shut.


This pattern has not been tested so let me know if there is any errors!  Smiley

Thank you for the pattern. I like the way it can be a starfish or a star in the sky.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
