Crochet Mermaid Doll Pattern

crochet mermaid doll pattern

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 Materials

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.

Sewing needle

Scissors

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.

Attach hair the same way you would tassels.

Funny Mermaid Fact: The First Mermaid was a Merman! At least according to Terry Breverton’s book: A compendium of Monsters, Myths and Legends.

Crochet fingers. (Ch 3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook, sl st in next st) x 3.

These crochet eyes are more like buttons where you will glue on crochet doll eyes.

Make a slip knot. Ch 1, sc in ring until you can not fit any more scs in round. Continue crochet over the round of scs with another round of scs. Repeat a third time of scs. Now the eye ‘button’ is folding slightly inwards. Use the inwards side of buttons outwards so that the doll eyes can sit within the buttons.

Mermaid Hair.

Attach green hair with sl st on top of the head.

Notice the fingernails. I ‘painted’ them pink by using a string of pink thread across fingers. I used the same pink yarn to create the mouth.
