The beach is our happy place and we love all things sea related. We didn't figure we could get through our first summer in business without making an adorable pocket mermaid to celebrate our summer and sea love!

These majestic little mermaids are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). This is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole house full of little-knitted magical mermaids! You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of mermaids, depending on what weight yarn you use as illustrated in the photos. We know, you didn't think this pattern could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of mermaids. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...

Yarn:
40-65 yards of aqua yarn for the tail
20-45 yards of coral yarn for top
30-55 yards of skin color yarn for body and arms

Scrap red or pink yarn for mouth

Gauge: You pick! Simply knit with your choice of yarn on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than called for to get a tight knit fabric your stuffing won't show through.

Needles: You pick! A 40" or longer circular needle (for Magic Loop Method) in a size right for your yarn.

Notions: Scissors, tapestry needle, beginning of the round stitch marker (removable or closed), optional row counter, 8 removable stitch markers, stuffing, and a set of safety eyes (or other eye choice such as buttons or scrap yarn for embroidery).

Finished size: Your finished size will depend on what weight yarn you use. If you are knitting this pattern in sock weight yarn like the smallest samples shown, your finished friend will come out about 4.5” tall with 6mm safety eyes. The worsted weight sample measures approximately 6” tall and uses 9mm safety eyes.
