When I was thinking about creating an ocean play set I never thought I'd find a manatee or a stingray pattern to include in the set. I was quite pleased to see the range of sea creatures I've been able to find crochet patterns for as I've proceeded with this project.

This is another pattern from Bathtime Buddies that I still have on loan from the library. I do have the PDF to work from once the library book goes back, but for the moment it is easier working from the book.

The manatee works up quickly. As I mentioned before I'm trying to keep my animals small for the play set. If I had to do this again I'd have used sport yarn, but grey is in short supply in my yarn sport section so I used a D hook with worsted weight 4 yarn.

Ahh, I love manatees! I was so surprised to see your little creation as most people don't know about manatees. Dolphins, yes, manatees, no. Love your liitle creature!

We saw them while visiting the in-laws in FL. I actually brought back a stuffed one as a souvenir from the trip. There's been quite a bit of publicity about them over the years as they get rescued from ship accidents.

I just love manatees; what a cute stuffed animal.

It is so cute! We saw manatees once in Florida and we loved those gentle creatures.
