3.5 mm crochet hook
Multi-color yarn (100g)
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! 😉
