Admittedly, I seem to have a slight obsession with mermaids as this is the third mermaid I designed. However, once she came to live, she simply needed a friend to keep her company. It started off with a whale… but then the whale seemed a little lonely so along came a shark. Then my boys insisted on a walrus after watching an episode on Blue Planet and the narwhal and orca quickly followed suit.

This pattern is perfect for using up those odd little balls of yarn we all are guilty of hoarding! This entire project was created out of my own left over stash. Here is what I had in my not-so-little-bag:
