under the sea

I finished the mermaid tail! And in plenty of time for Christmas delivery! Phew. This was fun and surprisingly easy--really perfect for a newbie crochet project!

Project: Bulky and Quick Mermaid Tail by MJs Off the Hook Designs (link to my Ravelry page)
Hook: P/Q (15 mm) and M/N (9 mm)
Yarn: two strands of Red Heart Super Saver in bon bon print (used just under six skeins) held with one strand of Red Heart Classic in grenadine (three skeins); bottom fin, two strands of  Red Heart Super Saver in Pretty 'n Pink (one skein) held together.
Mods: None, other than using three strands of worsted instead of the yarn called for in the pattern. I switched to the smaller hook for the fin!
