Pygmy Seahorse Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

I was so excited to be able to create the new Pygmy Seahorse Pattern.

Why design a Pygmy Seahorse?

This came as a request from a sweet 2nd grader who was working on an animal report. Part of the report was to include a “model” of the animal. Many of the kids were bringing in stuffed animals as their model, However, her Mom couldn’t find one. So, of course I was so excited to fill her request!
Now a true pygmy seahorse is only about 2 cm tall. There is no way I could crochet something that small, plus she needed to be able to display it. So, we decided to make it between 7 & 9 inches tall.

About the Pattern

My favorite part about making this pattern is that it is crocheted as one piece! That is right, no sewing involved! Also, the pattern can be made in different yarn weights. The purple sample was made in worsted (#4) weight yarn and is 9 inches tall. The pink sample was made in light (#3) weight yarn and is 7″ tall. This little seahorse is sure to be very loved!
An actual Pygmy Seahorse (image is from a google search and had a deadlink, if you know who should get credit for this image please let me know), has raised bumps covering their body to help them blend in with the coral they live around and the seahorse has no fins.
