This is THE must-have accessory of any Mermaid fan! This lovely applique can be used as a hair pin, brooch, key chain, ring, ear rings and anything else you can think of. The skill level required for this pattern is advanced-beginner / intermediate. It is my personal interpretation of how this character would look in 2D (and crocheted :)). The pattern comes with detailed written instructions and charts (if you prefer to use them). The pattern is my own inspired by my favorite mermaid. *You may NOT use this pattern, or the appliques produced following the pattern for commercial/retail purposes. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Increase and Decrease Change colors GAUGE No need for gauge. You can change the size to be bigger or smaller by using threads in different thickness and different hook sizes.
