Description

Mermaid Tail Cocoon Knitting Pattern # 115 -- Charming Newborn Photo Prop

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object. Once you have paid, you will receive an email with instructions for downloading your 2 pattern pdf's (newborn and toddler sizes), along with 3 other files:
1) yarn and needle terminology and equivalents
2) newborn photography and digital editing tips
3) links to super cute free patterns for fish, sea shells, and starfish that would be adorable in your scene.

If you need the Danish translation, please message me, or purchase on Ravelry instead.

Many thanks to Kyla Spence Photography in the Phoenix area for the ombre/multi-color mermaid cocoon photo! I am a BIG fan of her work.

I was present to help my friend Anna photograph her darling newborn daughter, and it was hilarious to see her flip her fin like a fish. She was just as snug as could be, and really seemed to enjoy herself. The mermaid in the treasure chest is my own sweet granddaughter at about 2 months and 15 pounds. Many thanks to pattern customer Cindy Evans and Dragonfly Photography in Jacksonville, NC, for the last photo.

You can also use this prop with a toddler if she sits in a tub and the fin is hanging over the edge, not actually on her. There's a good picture of that in the Ravelry listing. I ran out of room here!

This "scales" stitch pattern is just perfect, and I can't emphasize enough how easy this stitch is to create. All you will need is a skein of Caron Simply Soft yarn ($3.00 or so at WalMart!) and your needles.

I've written it two ways, so you can choose to knit in the round, or back and forth with a seam up the back.

Permission is granted to sell the mermaid cocoons you knit.

Not suitable for an absolute beginner, unless you have a personal coach in the extended family. Work on the basics with my pattern number 101 or 110 first. Email support is included! I can usually answer your questions in just a few hours.

File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and PayPal as instant payments.

If none of these work for you, I will also accept a US check or money order by mail.
I'm sorry, but no Canadian checks or money orders. The fees to process them cost more than their face value, usually.

Returns & exchanges

I do accept returns on knitted items if returned immediately, but I cannot refund the shipping fee you pay to me, nor the money you pay the post office to send it back to me.

Additional policies

I welcome questions about custom orders.
