My 4 year old son was invited to go to his first birthday party this month by a little girl in his class. She is having a little mermaid party. When trying to figure out what to get her I realized that she might already have a lot of store bought little mermaid items, so I decided to find a crochet or knitted mermaid pattern. Last night I started crocheting this little cutie, and I finished her today. The pattern was really easy. The pattern ended when her looking like the photo below. I did a little research into how other people had finished her on ravelry, and my favorite was one where the hair was filled in. So I filled in the hair, making sure to add some bangs. I gave her a little hair cut to try and make everything as even as possible. Then I crochet a little necklace for her, and glued a fake flower in her hair. Every time I look at her I smile. I hope that she will be loved in her new home.
