About the designer

Both my grandmothers taught me how to crochet when I was a child. In the fall of 2010, I got involved with crocheting again and it has quickly become a passion. I love creating patterns!

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • half double crochet
  • double crochet
  • treble crochet
  • front post double crochet
  • back post double crochet

Pattern Description:

This is a PDF file for a crochet pattern to complete a fun photography prop for a professional photographer or even an amateur that just wants some fun photos. It would also make a great accessory for a Halloween costume for a baby or little girl. MERMAID TAIL AND HEADBAND PATTERNS SOLD SEPARATELY.

Recently revised to include a photo tutorial and a stitch chart.

Sizes: This pattern will make a Shell Bikini Top that is adjustable for a baby up to child size. The shells can be moved, they are adjustable. Size is approximate but can be adjusted quite easily.

Tip: My suggestion ~ For a more modest look or for extra warmth if it's being used as a costume, wear a nude-colored leotard underneath...it works great! I also stitched the top of the shells together to keep it in place better.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Infant to child, customizable


  • worsted weight yarn
  • G (4 mm) hook
  • I (5.5 mm) hook
