📜Amigurumi sea horse pattern
Start to make the body, but before finish the last round, make the little and bigger fins, the mouth to sew on the body.
Fix the eyes between the 38th and 39th round with a distance of 11 stitches one each other.
Embroider the cheek with the same yarn of the fins, leaving a long tail before cutting.
Stuff and finish the rounds, so you don’t have difficulty to get caught in the polyester.
