Tine from the blog A French Touch shows you how to easily crochet a pram mobile with cute fish. You can combine many colors to make a colorful Mobilé.
Choose several different colors for your wool. The more colorful, the more beautiful!
M = mesh (s)
Lm = air mesh
Ktm = warp stitch
fM = fixed mesh
hStb = half sticks
Stb = chopsticks
R = row (s)
inc 1 st = increase sts (work 2 sts in same sts)
dec 1 st = dec 1 st (crochet 2 sts at the same time)
Start with a 6 fM Magic Ring and work the following rounds like this:
Round 1: (1 dc, 1 dc forward), repeat 3 times (9 dc)
Round 2: (2 dc, 1 dc forward), repeat 3 times (12 dc)
Round 3: 1 sturdy stitch in each stitch (12 sts)
Round 4: (3 dc, 1 dc forward), repeat 3 times (15 dc)
Round 5-7: 1 tight stitch in each stitch (15 sts)
Round 8: (3 dc, 1 dc off), repeat 3 times (12 m)
Round 9: (2 dc, 1 dc off), repeat 3 times (9 m)
Round 10: (1 dc, 1 dc off), repeat 3 times (6 m)
Now you fill the body with the filling material.
Crochet 4 ch and continue in the second stitch of the warp as follows:
1 hStb, 1 tr. Then you finish the first fin with 1 Ktm and at the same time close the body
Repeat this pattern for the second fin and cut the thread.
Crochet 1 dc by passing the needle through the 8th and 9th st of the fish as shown in the photo .
It continues with: 1 hStb, 1 fM, 1 Ktm.
Cut the thread through and crochet 1 sc, 1 tr in the 8th and 9th stitch for the smaller belly fin.
With this technique you can make as many fish as you want.
Then the fish are put together to a Mobilé. As a band, I crocheted a chain of wool from the wool, which I also used for the fish.
To hang the fish side by side, you can crochet a piece of wire in the desired length and then fix the fish with a piece of thread to your crochet.
Your pram Mobilé is ready. Have fun!
