I've seen other mermaid tails and they all seem to have the same type of fin on the bottom. I actually had an idea one night (while I couldn't sleep) for a different type of fin, and something with beads. After some serious thinking, the Beaded Beauty, A Mermaid Tale was created. This can be made without the beads if you prefer. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY add beads, sc, dc, trc, work in front loops and back loops GAUGE 6 DC stitches and 3 rows = 2 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS preemie/newborn, 0-3 months SUGGESTED YARN 200 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Red Heart COLORWAY blues, greens, purples

Recommended with this pattern

  • Red Heart Super Saver approximately 200 yards, #10 crochet thread, G and J crochet hooks, yarn needle
  • optional: #10 crochet thread, 4 mm pearl beads
