Little Mermaid Crochet Pattern

Find here an easy crochet pattern to make a Little Mermaid


Hi everyone! You will find on this page a Little mermaid Crochet Pattern. I made two of them with different skin colors. And guess what, absolutely no debate, they both are beautiful! The pattern works really fast and it is perfect for a last-minute crochet project! Change the pink hair for red hair and you will be able to make your favorite Little mermaid!

The body is made in one part, so if don’t like sewing a lot of parts, it is the perfect crochet project for you. You will only have to sew the arms, the tail and the hair! 

Don’t forget to join my Facebook group,  you can ask your questions, and share your finished projects. I will regularly ask you what pattern you would like to see next (or you can even suggest something even if I am not asking!).

I hope you will enjoy and understand the pattern. If you have any questions, feel free to write to me, I will try my best to help you. And I would love to see your work! 

You can find a free printable version of this pattern at the end of the page.
