Free Mermaid Tail Crochet Patterns
(a surprise for the boys!!) and
Color Palette Recommendations
from Karla’s Making It
I had so much fun looking for all these Free Crochet Patterns! There was a little disappointment too. I didn’t realize how many frustrating websites there are out there. Websites that have THE BEST Crochet photos I have ever seen, but there is only an ad! No pattern! I couldn’t resist showing you some of them for inspiration and color ideas! I believe with the free patterns below that you could absolutely replicate these darling mermaid tails.
Mermaid Tail Inspiration
Aren’t these Mermaid Tail Patterns the most darling things you have ever seen? I looooove all the baby ones but did you know there are patterns for Big Girls too!! Seriously! I know a bunch of teens (and maybe some moms?) that are going to be happy with meeee!
This Infant Mermaid Tail Cocoon is adapted from using the first pattern below and Red Heart Boutique in Candy. She adapted the pattern by eliminating some rounds and she crocheted in the round for the whole cocoon rather than making a split for a “blanket.”
Well here are enough free patterns to keep you busy for a while. I love all the creative ways these designers used different stitches to simulate scales. Even if you are a Crochet Newbie, there are patterns below with easy double crochet stitches and even some great video tutorials!

And for the Boys… A Shark Blanket!
We couldn’t leave out the boys!! They will be sure to love this shark sleep sack! If you make one, make one for me too!! I need this in my life 🙂 j/k but seriously, if you do make it, tag me on Facebook and let me know I inspired you!!

Color Palette Recommendations
Do you ever have trouble picking colors combinations that work well together for your Crochet Projects? I do, so I collect color palettes to look at when I’m having trouble deciding how to combine colors! Here are some color palettes that I saved this week. They would be great colors for your mermaid tails!!
