[Update: Due to popular demand from those who do not know how to crochet, I have made this “Crochet Fish Pendant” available in my online shop as a made-to-order item. Please allowed up to 2 weeks for it to be ready for shipment. Click here to order.]

You do not need fancy accessories to look trendy. Put on this simple crochet fish pendant necklace to spice up your daily casual wear.

I have been into minimalist fashion style all this while; without making my plain clothing looks dull and boring, I needed some accessories to cheer it up a little. While shopping for clothing and accessories, I came across a wooden fish pendant and I like it a lot. I presumed the wooden one (if it is a block of real wood) will be a lot heavier and might strain the neck after a long hour of wearing. That’s where I got the inspiration and came out with this crochet version of a fish pendant necklace, it is light and ergonomic, perfect for all-day wear.

Brighten up your day with something simple and easy to crochet. This crochet fish pendant is crochet by raffia yarn (you can buy it here) or you can use your preferred yarn to make it. Please refer to the full list of materials and tools in the pattern section. It is the same as amigurumi crochet where it is crochet in a continuous round with single crochet stitch. The crochet fish pendant is then pressed and blocked with a warm iron to make it flat.

If you are not into clothing accessories, probably you may want to make this crochet fish pendant into a keychain. It is a great handmade gift for any occasion, especially for an angler who loves fishing with rod and lines. I made this 3 fish keychain for my daughter as per her request (oh no, she is not an angler, she just love to own everything I make). It is now on her school bag following her to school every weekday. Her friends named it the fishing keychain since it looks like the fish are being angling.

You may want to make them in different colors too. I can’t stop making them, it is so addictive, thus I ended up making them with all the colors in my raffia yarn collection. I will put them up in my store soon just in case you want to buy instead of crochet it by yourself.

Or, chain a few of them to make a fish keychain.
Do you notice that I used the double head rivet button to make the eyes? Do you prefer metal eyes or wooden eyes?
