The Mermaid Princess Cuddle Critter Cape Set includes instructions for the Tails, Shells and Tiara. Uses the gorgeous crocodile stitch texture.

Note: This pattern was designed as a cape, to lay on top of the child, not a cocoon. It can easily be made into a cocoon by making two mermaid cape tails and simply stitching them together; or use the optional foot pocket to go all the way up the back of the cape.

The Back of the cape features an optional foot pocket to keep little toes from sticking out the sides of the cape. There are also instructions to put an entire pocket on the back if you want to more cocoon like. (see additional images)

This pattern is in American English.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Sizes: NB-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years, 3-4+

Additional sizing information: The 3-4T Tail was tested on 5-7 year olds and the width is good for most but you will need more length depending the height of the child.
Measure from the belly button to the floor and add about 4-6 inches for foot room. Make cape as written but continue to rep rows as shown in pattern. You can also go up hook sizes for more width and length as needed!
