6: 1 ch – 2 dec – 22 hdc (place a marker in the last st) – 2 dec 

1ch – sc all around the circumference.

We now need to create the hair strands extending from the hair cap: 

starting in the hdc with the marker, work 21 ch, sl st in second ch from hook, 19 sc.

In each of the next 21 hdc: work 21 ch, sl st in second ch from hook, 19 sc.

Repeat until you have 22 strands of hair.

 

Starfish

Remember to change crochet hook (1.5) 

5 sc in a MR

In each sc: 1 slip stitch – 1 hdc – 1 picot stitch – 1 hdc.

We will make 6 stars, 4 for the mermaid bra and 2 to decorate the hair.

With black yarn, sew the eyes and smile.

Congratulations! Your Mermaid is ready!
