Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this crochet pattern is for a Whale!!

This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.

This pattern comes with instructions to make your very own Whale!! Everything you see in the photos is included in the pattern and MORE!!! This pattern includes a whale body, belly panel, optional dorsal fin, and optional blow hole, it also includes two side fin options (one shape, with and without colorwork), and four tail fin options (two shapes, with and without colorwork)!!!

This Pattern consists of ONE PDF File, and the last 25 pages are Text-Only, Printer-Friendly instructions, but I strongly recommend you still refer to the photographic illustrations throughout the pattern if you have any questions.
