mermaid tail

My niece loves mermaids. I believe she may even want to be one when she grows up, so I decided that she needed a mermaid tail for her birthday.

It’s what aunties are for.

What six year old doesn’t want a mermaid tail? Eh?

I used this pattern and the biggest crochet hook you ever did see.


look at that enormous hook

I loved making this. Because it is two strands together it works up really quickly. I am really proud of the finished product, as a) it is the biggest thing I have ever crocheted or even knitted and b) it has won me some serious Aunty Points.

Now I just have to deal with the Ms pestering me for their own mermaid tail.
