Finishing the Fish

First, you must flatten the fish.

 

Eye:

To make the eye, with Secondary yarn, make two stitches “X” shaped. Place it between the round 4 and 5.

 

Mouth:

With Secondary yarn make a stitch upward, between rounds 1 and 2.

 

Backstitch:

Now with the same color yarn, do a backstitch around the fish, between rounds 7 and 8.

 

Detail:

Now you must make several cross stitches, close to backstitch you’ve done before. Make 3 stitches in one direction and 3 other perpendicular.

· Please look at the picture below, to help you with this part of the pattern.

Fasten off.
