Jellyfish are one of the most interesting creatures on Earth. They've been around for millions of years, even before dinosaurs came into the picture. They're so cool that there's even a type of jellyfish (Turritopsis dohrnii) that it is said to be immortal. I bet you didn't know that!

Anyway, I recently got this very cool multi-colored yarn and got the idea of making tons of mini jellyfish to decorate my office space. You can find the pattern below. I hope it can inspire you too! 😉
