The best thing about this crochet horse is that it can be shaped into all different poses which creates a very unique look.
This crochet Mermaid is made in a very peculiur manner. Instead of crocheting rows and rounds, I crochet a chainless single crochet cord. The chainless single crochet cord was shaped into the different Mermaid parts and stitched together using a sewing needle. The head, arms, and torso was made this way. The Mermaid tail was created by stitching together yarn that was already folded into loops. This type of yarn is called Loopy Yarn.
Crochet hook size 2.0
Crochet yarn: 100 % Acrylic 4 ply in light pink(body), red (hairband and mouth), black (eye), yellow, green (for the bikini), and white(eye). Loopy Yarn for Mermaid tail.
Crochet Mermaid Step by Step.
Begin creating a Chainless SC cord and turn it into a round ball as the image below shows. Create another Chainless SC cord (about 15 scs long) and at the end crochet fingers as follows: ch 2, turn and sl st in last sc, ch 2, turn, and sl st in same sc). Make 2 arms. Crochet torso by folding a long Chainless SC cord into half. Crochet breast by folding a shorter cord the same way. Fasten the cords into place using a sewing needle. Stitch the body parts together.
When you crochet nose, you simple crochet: ch 2, turn, sl st in 2nd ch from hook. Use a sewing needle and stitch it into a ball and attach it to face using sewing needle. Stitch the eyes by creating the eyeball the same way you made the nose. Stitch on black using a sewing needle. Stitch on eyelids. Stitch on a mouth.
This is a very simple pattern that shapes of an L and is the perfect shape for a doll leg and foot. If you want it to be bigger, you simply use a larger crochet hook and you increase the foundation chains.

Crochet Mermaid Doll Amigurumi Pattern
I hope you enjoyed this cute Mermaid. Once you have finished crochet the tail, body, head, and arms, you can then stitch on the ‘bikini’. I used sewing thread. I also used sewing thread to stitch on a little mouth. Eyes were created by stitching on eyelids over brown felt. I stitched a little nose on by stitching back and forth in the middle of the face. For ears, I simply stitched on a looop of yarn each side.
Hair. 4 ply light blue yarn is used, however, the threads are separated which creates a curly look. Stitch on top of the head using a sewing needle. Stitch on the same way you would stitch on tassels.
