Hello everyone! In case you missed it, I just published my first book, Plenty of Fish in the Sea! This book includes 20 different crochet patterns for ocean themed creatures. If you’d like to read more about the details of why you should get this book, check out this blog post.

To celebrate the launch of my new book, I decided to host a crochet along with lots of prizes! These prizes have generously been donated by Etsy sellers who are extremely talented.



1. Crochet the jellyfish from my book (available as a free PDF during this event).
Note: Pattern no longer available for free since the event has ended on November 21st, 2021.

2. Post a picture of your jelly fish in the comments section of this post.

3. You will be entered for a chance to be one of the three randomly selected winners!



These prizes will be shipped internationally, so you can enter in this CAL regardless of where you live! As mentioned, these prizes are from talented Etsy sellers who produce high quality, handmade, crochet related items.

There will be 3 randomly drawn winners on November 21, 2021. I will email the winners personally as well as announce who won in my weekly newsletter.

Elijah Jelinek, the owner behind “Fancy Boy Designs” creates some of the most high quality handmade project bags I’ve ever seen. The bags have a boxed bottom, meaning they will easily stand on their own instead of flopping over like some project bags. The detachable lanyard makes holding his bag with your hand or wrist super convenient! Best of all, these bags are very affordable for such high quality. Thank you, Elijah, for participating in this giveaway.

If you’d like to see many other designs by “Fancy Boy Designs”, check out his Etsy shop here!

Tina Goodrich has been operating her Etsy shop, “HandmadeMom” since 2010. It’s no wonder why she has so many 5-star reviews! Her handmade crochet hooks are such high quality and are completely unique. While she offers many cute and fun crochet hooks, she also specializes in customizing ballpoint pens, needle holders, and stitch markers, with clay.

I testing out crocheting with one of these crab hooks, and their cute design doesn’t get in the way of their functionality! They work just as any other crochet hook and are very comfortable to hold. I also have to mention that her prices are shockingly affordable!


Want to treat yourself with a cute crochet hook? Check out Tina’s Etsy shop here!

Jennifer Baker’s Etsy shop, “ShopHandstitchedLife”, carries so much variety in stitch markers! I probably spent an hour in awe of all her handmade stitch markers. If you like having something fun to look forward to after completing each crochet round – stock up on some of these stitch markers!


There is 100% something in her shop that you’d fall in love with. Not only are her stitch markers super cute, but the function so well. The crab hook latch means your stitch marker is extra secure in your crochet, so you won’t have to ever worry about your marker accidentally coming out! She was extremely generous in this giveaway and sent me 12 different stitch marker packs, making 26 different makers in total!


Take a look at Jennifer’s Etsy shop here, she has so many fun things to choose from!

I will be giving away 3 copies of my new crochet pattern book, Plenty of Fish in the Sea” for this crochet along.

First place winner: 1 project bag, 1 crochet hook,
3 packs of stitch markers, 1 copy of my new book

Second place winner: 1 project bag, 1 crochet hook,
3 packs of stitch markers, 1 copy of my new book
Third place winner: 1 copy of my new book,
3 packs of stitch markers

Winners will be drawn randomly on November 21, 2021. I will email the winners personally, as well as announce them in my weekly newsletter. Crochet the jellyfish (Note: pattern no longer available for free since the event has ended on November 21st, 2021.) and enter in by posting a picture in the comments below!

  106. I love this jellyfish! So cute and quick to make. I look forward to making the other sea patterns. If I don’t win a copy of the book I will definitely buy it. Thanks for this crochet a long giveaway!

  107. First and foremost, Olive many many congratulations for the new book. I absolutely love the spiral binding- perfect workbook. Looking forward to many more books from you. Had it not been for Angelia (from CrochetingHouseMouse) I would have missed this. Went over to my email and along with that there was another email from our local yarn company asking for knitted hats for underprivileged kids. So, I got this idea to combine the two and make a jellyfish beanie!!!

  108. I made this guy with Premier Pixie Dust and 12mm safety eyes. Great beginner pattern!

  109. This is the first finished project I’ve made all year, and the first thing that I’ve made specifically for myself. The sheer amount of joy I get from just holding this wee little thing in the palm of my hand is amazing. The pose in this picture was completely accidental, because I gently set it down to see if it could support its own weight, and the fact that the front two legs are positioned so daintily in front keeps cracking me up.
    Thank you for this absolute cutie of a pattern!

  110. This was so much fun! I used cotton yarn. I will make him again and use it as a pin cushion. Thank you so much!

  111. I loved making this jelly fish. Great pattern! Your new book looks great. Congratulations!

  112. I loved his pattern! It’s so cute! I added a string from the top to make it an ornament 😁

  113. Fun pattern, perfect project to use some rainbow yarn on!

  114. This is the first Anigurumi I ever made it didn’t turn out to bad I will have to make more and try to make them better then this one
