For many kids, the most fun part of playing dolls is dressing them up. This mermaid tail is an especially fun outfit that can be enjoyed by both kids and older doll collectors. It uses the cobble stitch, a pattern of alternating single and double crochet that’s much easier than it looks. The stitch makes the tail durable for many afternoons of play, and you can use any color combination you like for a variety of looks. You could even include a mermaid tail along with a Barbie doll for a unique gift.

Fits standard 11.5″ (29 cm) Barbie doll (with the belly button). Please note that there are various Barbie body types on the market today such as “Curvy,” “Tall,” and “Petite.” This pattern is designed for the classic body type because it’s the most widely available.
