Set of 3 Mermaid Patterns
Includes: Mermaid Tail pattern, Sea Shell Bikini Top pattern, and Headband pattern (with flower or anemone).
This is a PDF file of three separate crochet patterns to complete a fun photography prop set for a professional photographer or even an amateur that just wants some fun photos. It would also make a great Halloween costume for a baby girl. My suggestion: For extra warmth and modesty, put a nude colored leotard under the bikini top, this works especially well for a costume. See photos for examples.
Note: You are not able to walk in the mermaid tail so it is only suitable for photos or for babies that are not walking yet.
Sizes: This pattern now includes directions for all sizes, baby to adult. Depending on what size you are making, it may call for two strands of worsted weight yarn, two strands of bulky weight yarn, or super bulky yarn. The actual brand of yarn does not matter, just the weight. Hook sizes include L, N, P, or Q. (8 mm - 15 mm)
Headband can be made in any size, baby to adult.
Bikini top has directions for baby to child size.
Skill Level: Easy to moderate, experience is recommended. Stitches include single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, hdc2tog, hdc3tog, and slip stitch. You will at times work in front loop only (FLO) or back loop only (BLO). Some patterns include front post double crochet and back post double crochet. One of the patterns includes a button being sewn on, but it is optional.
All of my patterns are written in U.S. Standard Crochet Terms.
