Mermaid’s Tail Scarf
Ever since I was a kid, I have been fascinated with mermaids. My father, a Navy man and seafarer from way back, used to tell me old sea stories about sea monsters and mermaids. The first time I saw a manatee, my father was ready with a story about how manatees are what sailors most likely saw and interpreted to be mermaids. That was a long time ago, but I never lost my love of mermaids. But I translated my love of my father’s mermaid tales into a crochet interpretation of a mermaid’s tail. (see what I did there?) and here is the result.
This downloadable pattern is very quick and easy to work up using only single crochet and slip stitches. It will work in any 3-weight yarn, although I used Lion Brand Mandala yarn because of the colors. Speaking of colors, I have to admit that I tinkered with the order of them a bit. I started with the dark purple, light purple, and then royal blue. Then I broke it off and started from the aqua, then green, then pink. I totally skipped the light pink. You can do it any way you want, but that was the colorway that pleased me the most.

Now, I’m off to work on a Halloween surprise for you all. It’ll be a free pattern, so keep checking back. It should be posted in a few days, plenty of time to make one for Halloween.
