This pattern has been a long time coming! I began making these mermaid loveys, in this rag doll style, nearly 3 years ago. I had never seen anyone make them like that before, and I thought they would be great for children of a variety of ages, for snuggling, traveling, and creative play. They are light and easy to carry, and have no stuffing, so they are more easily washed. They provide comfort and creativity all in one! My children loved them immediately, and I have had many requests for custom orders over the years.
I've also received many requests for the pattern. Because I had always worked freehand on each doll, letting the creative process shape the doll, I never quite knew how to write it all down. But I finally sat down and did it!
This is the first character lovey pattern of a series of different lovey dolls with different styles. As the first, she is an homage to my first daughter (who just had a birthday!) and the beautiful pom pom pigtails she had as a toddler! However, they can easily be left off for a cute short-haired mermaid as well, so you already have 2 options!
This pattern can be found here, in my Ravelry shop. With this pattern, you will receive the fin form cut out to make the tail, written pattern instructions detailing how to cut and crochet around the fleece, and over 60 pictures to help along the way!
