Find here a pattern for a crochet clownfish.


 

My son has started to show interest in the movie Nemo so I have decided to make him a little crochet clownfish! It is a perfect crochet fish toy for little hands!

I also made a smaller version, perfect if you want to make a Marlin and Nemo (father and son clownfish). It is also great if you want to use it to make a crochet fish in a jar.
