This is a PDF CROCHET PATTERN to make the finished items pictured, NOT the actual finished item. There will be no refunds for failure to read the listing details, this listing is clearly for a crochet pattern.


This is a PDF file of two separate crochet patterns to complete a fun photography prop set for a professional photographer or even an amateur that just wants some fun photos. It would also make a great Halloween costume for a little girl. My suggestion: For more modesty and warmth, wear a nude colored leotard underneath the top when using as a costume. Includes a pattern for a Mermaid Headband with both a flower and a starfish pattern, and pattern for a shell bikini top.

Mermaid Headband: all sizes
Shell Bikini Top: baby and child sizes

Easy to moderate, experience is recommended. Stitches include single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, hdc2tog, hdc3tog, and slip stitch. You will at times work in front loop only (FLO) or back loop only (BLO). Some patterns include front post double crochet and back post double crochet. One of the patterns includes a button being sewn on, but it is optional.

This pattern is written in STANDARD US CROCHET TERMS.

Crochet hook sizes “G” (4 mm), “I” (5.5 mm), “H” (5 mm), “L” (8 mm), “J” (6 mm) and worsted weight cotton yarn. Optional, button(s), needle and thread.

Pattern includes detailed instructions, a photo tutorial, and a stitch chart. *Again, please note: you will be purchasing the pattern only, not a finished product. Do not purchase this listing expecting a finished item.*
