Beaches, waves, warm sunshine and of course, Mermaids! In these warm beachy months of summer, it seemed the right time to create an adorable trio of Mermaids. These little mermaid dolls are knit seamlessly from the bottom-up with the arms, fins, ears and crown being picked up and knit on. The instructions provide exact placement for all of the appendages and eyes and instructional photos are included to help along the way. There is a necklace of pearls (or maybe French knots!) embroidered on afterward and there is a video tutorial link for this technique included in the pattern. Instructions include simple guidelines for making a Merman, if interested.
I hope you enjoy knitting these lovely little Mermaids. They make for a joyful set!
Please Note: We switched the purple to Iris for this round of kits. The original photos and samples show Wood Violet for the purple. The kit now includes Iris, which is a more vibrant orchid color!
- Enough of our Home Fingering Weight yarn to make at least one Mermaid. There is actually enough yarn to make two Mermaids by mixing up the color placement. You get three colors, Iris (vibrant purple - please note this is a different purple than is shown in the photo), Wishing Well (medium blue) and Priscilla (pink). You get your choice of skin color, Bear (brown), Tattersall (tan), or James (peach)
- A Ravelry download code for the Mermaids pattern. This will be included inside your kit on a printed card.
- Two pairs of 6mm safety eyes
- Pink embroidery floss for the mouth.
