Fish Bone Amigurumi

I was looking through some library books this weekend and found a few with some amigurumi patterns.  I liked this fish bone pattern so I went ahead and made it.  It's from Amigurumi!: Super Happy Crochet Cute by Elisabeth A. Doherty.

This time I found the pattern exceptionally difficult.  I had the hardest time making the head.  I always ended up with a stitch less than what was called for.  The bone spine gave me trouble as well, and I had to add on extra stitches to that as well.  I figure I must have been doing something wrong, or misreading/misinterpreting the pattern.

This time I'm not quite sure of what yarn I used, since the main color was from a batch of mystery yarn that my mom gifted to me.  The white is Red Heart: Soft, the red and pink are Red Heart: Super Saver.  I think the colorful parts are I Love This Yarn: Stripes... Not sure.  Worked with a G hook of course.

I've named him Chili Pepper, and he is a very dead fish.  I love libraries!
