The Blue Lobster Crochet Tutorial

With your materials at the ready, it’s time to immerse ourselves in the creation of our Blue Lobster. Remember, every great masterpiece begins with a single stitch. So, let’s get started!

Body: Begin with the body, working from the bottom up starting with the tail, which is worked around a starting chain. The pattern is worked in continuous rounds.

Rnd 1 to Rnd 18: (Refer to the original pattern for detailed instructions)

Make sure to stuff the tail and the body as you go along.

Then, insert your 14mm safety eyes between rows 13 and 14 with approximately 4 sts between them. You can also stitch cheeks on if you wish. Afterward, top up stuffing and tie off, leaving a long tail for closing. Weave yarn tail through each stitch and pull to close. Weave ends inside.

Antenna (make 2): After the body, proceed to create two antennas with the dark blue yarn and attach them onto the top of the head between rows 16 and 17, with approximately 5 sts between them.

Claws (make 2): Next, using your light blue yarn, create two claws. If you want your lobster’s claws to be posable, you can insert pipe cleaners (chenille wire) into them. Stitch the claws onto each side of the body between the second and third dark blue stripe.

Legs (Make 4): Finally, create four legs with the dark blue yarn and stitch two legs onto each side of the body underneath each claw.
