This pattern specifically contains instructions for four additional unique, beautiful styles of fins. Style 1 is included in the Main Unicorn Mermaid Pattern which also includes the instructions for the body, head, legs, hooves, ears and horn. This Add-On pattern DOES NOT contain instructions for the Body, etc. of the Mermaid Unicorn. This Add-On pattern contains instructions for Style 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Unique Fins and Tails. Style 2 includes instructions for Tail Fins, Side Fins and Dorsal Fins. Style 3 includes instructions for Hoof, Mane, Ear and Leg Fins. Style 4 includes instructions for Scalloped Tail, Side, Mane, Dorsal, Hoof and Ear Fins. Style 5 includes instructions for Hyperbolic-style Mane, Dorsal, Side and Tail fins. This pattern also includes instructions for a front leg without the hoof, so that the Hoof-Fin pattern can be attached easily.

The Main Pattern for the Unicorn Mermaid Body and Style 1 of Tail and Fins can be found here:

It is recommended for intermediate skill level or above. Gauge is not crucial to the pattern of the fins, but it is recommended to use the same yarn and hook as you used in the creation of the Unicorn Mermaid Body using the Main pattern for the supplemental Fins in this pattern. A G size crochet hook is recommended with worsted weight yarn and you will need a darning needle to weave in the yarn ends and sew shut any holes. A Mermaid Unicorn from this pattern is approximately 11 inches tall from Hoof to Top of the Head (without Horn), about 4 inches wide from left to right side, and about 28 inches long from nose to the end of the Tail Fin. The Horn is optional. These measurements will vary depending on which Style you utilize. This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.

The Finished Mermaid Unicorn is free standing and poseable. It uses one package of 18g paper wrapped floral craft wire to create a simple spine for the Mermaid Unicorn’s body which allows for the head to be moveable, and it gives the option of using wire in the legs which allows them to be poseable as well.
