Maya Mermaid crochet pattern creates a very special toy. The crocheted fabric is both textured and durable. The head of the doll is sized to snugly fit a 1.5" diameter rattle insert. Maya mermaid is worked in 6 pieces: head/body, 2 arms, 2 fins, and hair. Like most amigurumi, this piece is worked in a continuous spiral. Do not join rounds. Using a stitch marker can help keep track of rounds. The total number of stitches in a round is given in parenthesis ( ). Stuff as you go (polyester filling, cotton, yarn scraps, etc.). Finish the piece by sewing together the parts and embroidering the eyes using a yarn needle. --- WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW --- 1. This pattern is written in clear, North American terms. 2.

I have been crocheting since my babysitter sat her down one afternoon when I was 7 years old. More than 22 years later, I still loves to pick up a hook and yarn. all items made are her own original patterns. I have two degrees (B.Sc. and M.Sc) in Biology. My university career taught me to be observant (the critical eye) and I use everyday observations, math, and my imagination when creating new designs.
