Item details

Listing for the open back mermaid tail CROCHET PATTERN ONLY. This pattern makes a mermaid sack that is closed like a sack for sizes 0-6 months and 6-12 months. The 1-4 year, 5-10 year and 11-Adult sizes are closed for the bottom 12 inches of the sack portion and then open in the back for the remaining portion of the sack.

This pattern makes the perfect mermaid tail sack. The mermaid sack is a great gift and is comfy and warm. This open back version is great for accommodating different people of a variety of widths as well as someone in a wheelchair.

I also have a pattern for the mermaid tail that is completely closed all the way up the back. Click here to purchase that style:

All patterns are american english written instructions in standard US standard terms.

**Sizes included are 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-4 years, 5-10 years, and 11 years- Adult.
**Any worsted weight yarn can be used.

**I have two private you tube videos to help if you have trouble getting the sack portion started after the fin. This is the trickiest part of the pattern. This is why I have the video if you need additional help. The you tube links are included with the written pattern.

Can't get past the second round even with video. Wasted my money. Will try something easier. Video is with varigated yarn and hard for me to follow the the "turn your yarn" instructions. Just got lost visually. The video is fast for such a tricky place. Stopping a fast video isnt the same as a slow video.

This pattern is the best - very clear instructions for anyone that can't understand the crocodile stitch she does a great job explaining.
