Pattern Description:

**2013 UPDATE IS HERE!! What you will find with the pattern update: The beginning rounds have been rewritten using a simpler format to be even easier to follow! A larger fin adds more drama to this adorable prop. Updated copyright, layout, and photos to highlight the possibilities!!**

You are purchasing a PDF file of a complete crochet pattern. Finished projects are ideal for use as a stunning prop for professional photographers, or for parents who want to create their own precious memories.

This pattern would also be adorable for a Halloween costume.

The diamond pattern also has the added benefit of being UNISEX. Simply crochet using darker colors and leave off the top for an ultra cool merman!

What you will find within the pattern:
Included with your purchased PDF file are complete and thoroughly tested patterns for the mermaid tail, fin, and top.

Also included is a hand drawn symbol chart (which will make crocheting this prop a breeze) along with a thorough photo tutorial walking you through each step of the diamond stitch.

All techniques and finished sizes are listed in US terminology.

Sizes: This pattern is written for a newborn: size 0-3 months ONLY. You can easily adapt this pattern to fit a larger baby by sizing up recommended crochet hooks and adding several more rounds to make it longer.
