Totally 80s Coral Yarn Fish

crocheted fish

inspiration photo: NOT a fail!

From: Kristi
My website:

So, what color matches coral or salmon? GAH!?! Certainly not lemon yellow OR a light lime! Oh, my, gah, Becky, that totally clashes!

The photo above is the inspiration project… (Find the free crochet pattern here). Yup, there is even a nice Google Doc of it in English! I downloaded it, and tried to pull something salmon-ish out of my stash – you know, a good sushi color!

That yarn happened to be Caron Simply Soft (I thought it was called Coral) – and since I can’t find reference to the color online (sorry, no wrapper), I assume it to be discontinued!

Yeech! No wonder it has been lingering in my yarn stash! It is more peachy in person than my camera captured (actually, the pictures don’t look nearly as bad) and the bright yellow/lime fin is literally gross looking to me…plus I had trouble sewing it on, so it is on there so well I am going to have to cut the fin up to get it off the fish…

Next time, I should look more closely at the pieces before I become obsessed with perfect stitching!

I’m planning on trying black and white for the accents after I cut this mess out, hopefully they won’t make my fish look so sick!
