This cute little crochet mermaid photo prop set would make a fabulous addition to any photographer’s repertoire. The pattern is now available on Ravelry where you can see some other colour combinations (worked by The Happy Hooker’s Hangout Testers) in the linked project pages.
The tail (as per the given pattern) measures 14″ in length (fin not included in measurement).
The top edge, with its delicate shell trim, will sit between tummy and chest (depending on the length of the baby) and has a circumference of 35cm (16″) at its widest point.
Directions are also provided for making larger sizes based on chest size and length requirements.
The scales are worked using the very popular ‘crocodile’ stitch and these are also featured on the matching headband (please see pattern listing for details – headband shown in featured picture is the photographers own).
This item is not suitable for sleeping in.
Materials: Approximately 200g (360m) of double knit (8 ply) yarn.
Tools: 3.50mm (E) hook (or appropriate size, if substitute yarn is used) and a wool needle for finishing
