Little mermaid amigurumi Britt was created especially for the amigurumi workshops I was teaching in the Netherlands from September 2019 until May 2019. Britt measures about 18,5 cm’s when I crochet her with a 2.0mm hook. When you go up a hooksize, she might be bigger, but proportions remain intact. This means gauge isn’t important.

The pattern is available in Dutch and English (US therms used throughout the pattern)

Hooksize:
This doll is crocheted with a 2.0mm hook and the recommended yarn. It’s important to crochet thightly enough so the fibrefill won’t fall through the stitches, but don’t crochet too thightly to hurt your hands and wrists. If you crochet very loosely, please use a smaller size and if you crochet too thight, please use a bigger size hook. The proportions of the mermaid stay intact, so gauge is not important.

Gauge
Is not neaded for this pattern.

Notions
Neelde, sissors, fibrefill, stitchmarker.
