This mermaid tail bag pattern has both a child and an adult size option. Each is made with less than 1 skein of worsted weight yarn (I used I Love This Yarn!). You will also some worsted weight yarn in a contrasting color. Everything is worked using a size I (5.5mm) crochet hook except for the optional starfish on the child-sized pattern, which uses a 7 (4.5mm) crochet hook. But you can easily substitute different hooks since gauge isn’t critical.

A tapestry needle is required for assembly. I would also recommend using a stitch marker to help you keep track of your place when working in the round.

Step by step photos of the bag are provided to help you with the pattern. Although the pictures are from the child sized bag, the construction is the same for the adult bag so it should be a useful reference for making either.
