This is a picture of a blue devil anglerfish I knit for my stepdaugther. This pattern is from Hansi Singh’s book, Amigurumi Knits. It’s also on Ravelry, if you know anyone in your life who is just dying to have a knit anglerfish. You can also add a parasitc male, which I elected not to for my stepdaughter. If you’d like to know more about parasitic males and the reproductive cycle of the anglerfish, check out this cartoon, which is hilarious. I don’t think this is why my stepdaughter picked the anglerfish out of the book when I asked her which animal she wanted. She named her anglerfish Carl, and I did not feel compelled to point out to her that this was a female anglerfish, because sometimes, you’d just rather not go there.
