Apply a small amount of glue to one area of dowel. Wind E around glued area. Continue to apply glue and wrap with E until both dowels have been wrapped. Cross dowels at their centers (forming a +) and glue together. Allow to dry.

Hanging loop:
Cut a 36 in. (91.5 cm) length of E. Fold length in half and tie a knot about 6 in. (15 cm) from fold to make a hanging loop. Wrap ends of E length around crossed dowels to secure. Knot ends, then glue beneath the dowels. Trim yarn ends after glue is dry.

Note:
Hang the mobile before attaching the pieces to ensure that the mobile remains balanced as the pieces are attached.
Wrap long tails of Seaweed around dowels about 2 in. (5 cm) from crossed center of dowels. Knot ends, then glue beneath the dowels. Trim yarn ends after glue is dry.

Attach Fish
Thread an 18 in. (45.5 cm) length of monofilament through center back of each Fish and knot. Knot opposite end of monofilament to dowel, about 1 in. (2.5 cm) from end. Attach the center Fish first, then the Fish at the ends of the dowels. Knot ends, then glue beneath the dowels. Trim thread ends after glue is dry.

i had a hard time understanding how to make the fish. i made something like a snake. i gave it to an expert crocheter and she even had a rough time doing it.
