The motivation for this pattern comes from the fact that I did a lot of amigurumi of aquatic animals recently and I thought that a jellyfish with long tentacles would be very cute and snuggle material. After looking at different patterns online, I decided to create my own.

The characteristic that I wanted for sure was long tentacles that curled. I think this effect it adorable and adds some character to the design. The ultimate goal was to make the biggest jelly fish that could still fit comfortably on a desk as a cute decoration.


  • 5 mm hook
  • Stitch markers
  • 6 weight yarn (in this pattern, Sweet Snuggles™ Lite Yarn by Loops Threads)
    • For the tentacles : 30 g (24 m)
    • For the base and the body : 50 g (40 m)
  • Safety eyes 14 mm
  • Polyfill
