More coral reefer madness

More coral reefer madness!  Using different texture yarns, and different increase algorithms for the hyperbolic corals is compelling, to see how the resulting coral will turn out.  Plus, a little free form crochet for coral reef denizens that aren't hyperbolic :-)

The little fish are from a free pattern (NOT one of mine) available here:

I modified the basic pattern, shown on the right, to make a little clownfish, shown on the left. 

The basic hyperbolic shapes for this reef are shown below, plus a couple of free form sponges.

I'm starting to run out of space!  It would be nice to turn this into a wallhanging. 


  1. Beth! Just love the reef it looks so life like and I also like the colour of the hair on the mermaid! This is so amazing and once again thanks for the patterns!

  2. Beth,
    You are truly AMAZING!!!! Your creativity continues to blow me away!!

  3. Ann, Typs, and anon, thanks so much for your good words!


  4. This is absolutely gorgeous Beth. What a great idea!

    1. Thank you; it is a lot of fun, and a great way to use up stash yarn :-)


  5. These are very beautiful. I came to your blog because of the photo of your grandmother in Fairmount, IN in the 1913 flood. I would like to contact you privately about that. Please friend me on Facebook if you can? Cathy Shouse
