If you would like me to make you a No Fuss Fish, please check out my shop:

This listing is for three PDFs - a US version of the pattern, a UK version of the pattern and a photo guide to help you make your own jar. The PDFs are digital downloads delivered by Etsy after payment. PLEASE make sure you complete the download process. If you are having problems, please see the FAQ below.

The patterns are print friendly and contain minimal photos (to save you ink). The Photo guide has close ups of how to construct each part of the jar.

These patterns assume some crochet knowledge, but it isn't complex. The fish is worked in continuous rounds amigurumi style, mostly in sc/ dc stitches.

Pattern support is available is needed. Just drop me a message! :)

- Help! My pattern won't download!
Please read this from Etsy:
If you are still having problems, please message me with your order number and email address and I'll manually send you over the files.

- How big is the finished fish?
My fish is around 7cm ( 2 1/2 inches) from nose to tail. I crochet with a tight tension for amigurumi. If your fish is bigger, either tighten your tension or drop your hook and yarn size down.

What yarn/hook do you use?
I use Sirdar Cotton DK or Pattons Cotton DK. Both are a mercerised cotton and you should use very little, probably around 10g. I use a 2.5mm hook.

What jar do you use?
I use an Ikea Korken 0.5l jar which is approx 10cmx10cm

Do you tell me how to make the jar?
YES! Please check the photo guide (included as one of the three PDFs) for all the instructions of how to assemble the jar.

How does the fish move?
The fish is hanging from invisible thread.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

I loved this pattern. It was so easy to follow. Of course I didn’t read carefully enough to see that my side fins were wrong. But I love him anyway. I also didn’t have the safety eyes. Oh well!!!

Finished! I loved making this... super easy. I added a frilly tail by chaining 5 and slip stitching to the closed tail end. Super cute!!! Plan to make one for each of my nieces and nephews for Christmas. Great pattern. Thank you.

These fish are super cute and addictive to make. I love playing around with the colors and seeing each come together. The pattern is very well written and detailed. Thank you for this cute pattern.
