Introduction: Knit Mermaid Tail for Dolls

Picture of Knit Mermaid Tail for Dolls

I have transformed my dolls into into sirens of the sea with this new knitting pattern I designed, Mermaid Tail for Dolls.

The models are a Barbie and a 27cm Volks doll. The furniture and accessories are by Mattel and Re-ment.

The pattern calls for 1 skein of Cotton Classic yarn by Tahki Stacy Charles and US 5 dpns or a long circular needle. It is an nice inexpensive yarn that comes a rainbow of beautiful colors.

The pattern, which requires knitting in the round, increasing, and decreasing is available in my Etsy store,

Very nice, but you are actually advertising here and selling your pattern on Etsy .The whole idea behind Instructables is to share.

I love this! When I was a kid, my Aunt crocheted outfits for my Barbies. They've since been passed along to her grand daughter, but I'll never forget them because they were such a special touch to a commercial toy. The mermaid tail is fantastic! If I had one when I was young, I wouldn't have been so hell bent on getting that Ariel doll for Christmas :P
