    Thank you so much for doing this video, it was very helpful. I was asked by a friend of mine, who had a request from her granddaughter, to make a baby mermaid tail. I had difficulty until finding your video, even finding a pattern. The first pattern that I tried, was written all wrong, impossible to follow. I do have to admit, defeat, even though she had bought the wool for me to use. Third try was my lucky one. Your video is very easy to follow, and I really enjoyed the whole process, and pleased with my end result. Just recovering from knee replacement surgery, it took me a little longer than I figured. Again thank you so much, I will be making more of these.

    Thank you for sharing my video tutorial Mikey! I really appreciate it. I use my dad’s account on YouTube to share my video tutorials. His name is Fuad Azmat. 🙂 I share all my videos and patterns on my website (YARNutopia.com) Some of my patterns are free, but this one is a paid pattern that can be found on my etsy shop. Again, thank you for sharing my pattern. Your website is the very best resource for me, so you can imagine, I’m totally fan-girling right now that you recognize my work!

      I would like to extend and increase the pattern to fit a 3 year old and a 4 year old how would I go about increasing row 41 for 60 double crochets around the mermaid and then what will be the next increase and how many rows do I keep the 60 dc rows and I assume the next increase would be 70 how would I do the increase as for the dc in next stitch and 2 dc in the next is this confusing I don’t think ill have to increase it after 70 dc around if all possible can you enlighten me to follow through with this pattern I really love this pattern and had excellent teaching skills I was able to follow you throughout the pattern and then I just will have to follow the rest of the waist band as it goes thank you very much I sure would appreciate this I am making these for my granddaughters for when we go to ocean city Maryland in September and its their birthdays on September 7th and September 9th and we are going to have them wear them while we take pictures on the beach with their traditional heart made in the sand with their name and the year that we are there this one will be Alyssa 4 years old Alayna 3 years old on 2015 is written and formed inside of a big heart and each girl will sit by their name wearing these mermaid suit so if you can be of any help I would really appreciate it
