Here is a free mini jellies (jellyfish) amigurumi crochet pattern as part of my Sea Life Mobile project.
With a baby on the way, I am excited to make him all the things. One of the first things I set out to make was a mobile for over his crib and changing table. Here is the fifth animal for my sea life baby mobile: a pair of jellyfish!
The jellies are designed to be anatomically correct with an outer body with legs and an inner gut with feeding tentacles.

The little jellies are made in 2 parts: the body and the tentacles.
They are stitched in Knit Picks Mighty Stitch in Wisteria and Sky, with a 4mm hook. Gauge is not important. A larger hook and thicker yarn will result in a larger amigurumi.
The jelly's body is 3 inches long and 2 inches in diameter.
Row 1: 6 sc in a magic ring.
Row 2: 2 sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Row 3: [sc, 2 sc in next st] repeat 6 times. (18 sts)
Row 4: [sc 2, 2 sc in next st] repeat 6 times. (24 sts)
