Mermaid Baby Crochet Pattern

Mermaid Baby Crochet Pattern

Yesterday, the Fishing Net Blanket was added to blog and today I am adding the Mermaid Baby. These two patterns go so perfect together. The Mermaid Baby pattern is so quick to make and also fun to see it become a mermaid. The pattern calls for chunky yarn, but you could use it with a solid color or something variegated like I have used.  Sometimes it is hard to find a pattern to use with the variegated yarns, but the Mermaid Baby is perfect.  This pattern uses basic crochet stitches to work up the adorable Mermaid Baby!

See you can go with any shade of variegated yarn to make the adorable Mermaid Baby!
