Summer is just around the corner. The temperatures are rising and I’m ready for some fun in the sun at the beach or pool. Tropical and nautical themes are popping up here and there to get everyone in the mood for summer activities. Start off your summer knitting with these 4 sea creature patterns from AllFreeKnitting. Most of these patterns are fairly small so you can even bring them along when you go poolside! Or plop down on the couch and turn on The Little Mermaid to get you in the mood as you knit these fun fishy patterns.
It’s a entire ocean of life knit in one blanket! The Sea Creatures Throw includes starfish, fish, crabs, octopi, seahorses, and dolphins – the perfect combination of friendly sea critters. Each sea creature is knit separately and then added to the blanket itself, creating a fun multidimensional effect that kids will love! Make this throw to bring to bring to the beach or poolside.
Go fishin’ with this quick and easy Goldfish Knitting Pattern. Reminiscent of that those tasty little fishy snacks, this pattern will make you smile. All snacks aside though, it’s also a perfect project for your ocean friends collection. Knit a fish in traditional orange, but then switch things up and make a whole school of fish in different colors.
Create this Cute Knitted Fish using variegated wool yarn to give it some color. Once you’re done knitting, send this little guy on a trip to the high seas of your washing machine for some proper felting. Add some character by sewing on buttons for eyes, or get even more creative with googly eyes or embroider your own design in place.
Meet the jellyfish without a sting. Knit this Two Hour Felted Jellyfish in no time at all. First you knit the body, then add thick strands of yarn for tentacles. Then felt it for a fun finishing touch. Unlike real jellyfish, you can cuddle this one for hours on end without the shocking side effects.
Even though it’s getting hot out, would you still consider knitting a blanket such as the Sea Creatures throw?
