Notes

Adding straps and making these “full body tails” for a more modest mermaid ;)

Size 9 needles for the body

Size 8 needles for the ribbing

Size 4 needles for the straps. CO 10 sts for each strap (make two) and sew onto body.

I ended up needing a little over two skeins but I only had two in my possession so I added trim and straps in a coordinating blue. I think it worked out.

Pictures show tails unblocked. The girls love their mermaid dolls!!
