4. 2sc, inc (24)
5. 3sc, inc (30)
Crochet slst, cut the thread, fasten it.

LEGS (TENTACLES)
Crochet the tentacles directly into the lower part of the jellyfish. Insert the hook between the 3rd and 4th rows, in the place where the marker passed (the beginning of the row), i.e. legs should go in a circle at the distance of 2 rows from the edge of the “circle”. Insert the hook, grab the thread, crochet 1ch and fasten the end of the thread immediately, crochet further:

30ch, 30inc (the first leg/tentacles turned out)
Without skipping loops, immediately crochet 3sc, completely grabbing the stitches of our “circle”.
30ch, 30inc, 4sc
30ch, 30inc, 3sc
30ch, 30inc, 4sc
30ch, 30inc, 3sc
Connect to the beginning of the row using slst. Cut the thread, fasten it

Next, make the chain, starting from the second chain from the hook crochet slst along whole length into each chain. Cut the thread, leave a small tail. Such chains are needed to be 6 pieces of different lengths and colors.

Fasten each chain in the center of the “circle” with tails. Pull out the tails at the distance of 1sc and tie 2-3 knots on the wrong side. The lower part of the jellyfish is completely ready.

HEAD (BELL SHAPE BODY) +
“SKIRT”
1. 6sc in MR
2. 6inc (12)
3. 1sc, inc (18)
4. 2sc, inc (24)
5. 3sc, inc (30)
6. 4sc, inc (36)
7-10. 36sc (4 rows)
11. 4sc, dec (30)
Insert the safety eyes between 8th and 9th rows. The distance between the eyes is 4sc. 12. 30sc and connect this row the lower part and the head. Grab with the hook the loops of both parts and crochet together sc. Stuff with holofiber. 13. Crochet the “skirt”. 1sc, skip 1 st of the previous row, 5dc in one stitch, skip 1 st, 1sc, 5dc in one stitch, etc.

At the end of the row, 2 loops will turn out to be “excess”, in order to avoid this skip not 1sc but 2 a couple of times. It will be invisible. Finish with slst, cut the thread, fasten and hide it.
Embroider a mouth, eyelids and eyebrows with yarn YarnArt Jeans. If you want, you can make a little eye tightening.
