The other day I came across this free pattern on Pinterest. I was looking for a cute and quick project to make for some craft fairs I would have been a part of last summer. These mini whales were perfect! I, unfortunately, do not know the creator of the pattern, but you can find it here: https://ea1701.wordpress.com/2012/09/15/can-you-stare-like-a-whale-free-pattern/.
I highly recommend this pattern for beginners because it is easy and would allow you to practice basic stitches and sewing techniques. Even though I recommend these mini whales for beginners, crocheters of any level will enjoy this pattern. Like I said before, they’re quick. I can make one in about fifteen minutes or less. Also, people love them. These mini whales are currently my top-selling item on Etsy. Everyone I’ve made them for loves them!
I make modifications to the whales that I sell based on this pattern because it seems like there are one-too-many rows on top of the head. Other than that, this is a great pattern. These mini whales would be great items to add to your craft fair lineup or anywhere you may sell your crochet. If you need a small quick gift for someone, they’re good for that too. I’ve also made myself a few to keep around my room.
