October 2006
DK (11 wpi) ?
US 3 - 3.25 mm
approx 1 3/4 in in diameter (body)

Pattern Description

Children love mermaids’ friends. They are very quick and easy to knit, so make lots of them in a whole variety of colors. I used tapestry yarn for these because of the huge color range available.

Yarn Requirements

  • Small amounts of DK weight yarn in yellow, pale ochre, white, orange and black
  • Scraps of light coral 4-ply cotton yarn for legs

Additional Materials
- Polyester toy stuffing

Gauge Information--working to a specific gauge is not essential for these toys.
