Fishy Pull, 2 Colors (Grey & Turquoise Shown)

Things You Will Need:

Two strands of boondoggle, each 4 feet long.
1 Lanyard Hook.

How to Create Above Fishy Pull:

Create a Starter Square Stitch...

Turn the Starter Square Stitch over, so you're
looking at the "cross" side...

Do a Square Stitch to cover the "cross" side...


When tightened, you won't be able to tell the
difference from this side...

And the bottom, but when the entire project is
completed, BOTH tail ends of the fishy will
have the checkerboard showing...

Do 7 additional Square Stitches, followed by
70 Circle Stitches, which will look like this
when you finish.

Now comes the tough part. Bend the Circle
Stitch end around, so it meets where your
original Square Stitch turns into Circle Stitch
and create a Square Stitch OVER the
completed Square/Circle junction...

Which will look sort of like this when done...


Continue the Square Stitch another 7 times, so
you have 8 Square Stitches in all. Pull the last
Square Stitch really tight, then set the Fishy
aside for at least 12 hours. Trim the strands as
close as possible to the finished work.

Using something thin and blunt, like a push
pin, stretch out one of your stitches about
where the mouth of the fish would be, then
insert a Lanyard Hook.

You may need to twist and/or pull the tail
pieces a bit to get them in the right orientation,
but when you're done, you'll have a completed
Fishy Pull. Cool, huh?!?

Other Fishy Ideas:

Try the opposite of the above, where you use Circle Stitch for
the tail, and Square Stitch for the body.
Try using the SAME stitch for the entire Fishy!
Try using FOUR COLORS for your Fishy. To do this, tie the
ends of four different colored boondoggle into a half-granny
knot (the knot you start with when tying your shoes). Be sure
to leave between 1 and 1½ inches of strand coming out of the
knot. After you complete 5 stitches, untie the knot, and do an
additional 3 stitches from the knotted end. Trim the excess
ends at the same time you trim the final ends, AFTER you let
it sit at least 12 hours.
Try attaching the Lanyard Hook to the TOP of the Fishy,
where it's top fin would normally be found.
