Now not Free Crochet Pattern – Childs Mermaid Tail

I have discovered that someone has decided to use my pattern to make money and has published it online making a nice sum of money.

It is with regret that in an attempt to prevent this happening I have published the pattern myself on Etsy so it can be purchased. I have tried to keep the cost as low as possible for everyone.  From here I will be able to also offer technical support.

Sorry for the quick decision but I hated being taken advantage of. I have loved receiving you comments and positive feedback on the pattern. It is unbeliable the views this item has received.  I will try to provide more free patterns in the near future

    So I have finished this blanket up to the fin and I starting on the fin and got up to row 7 and seem to be doing something wrong. I can’t figure out why it’s not working. I know in row 6 there is 32 stitches but row 7 there’s 33 stitches so how does that work? I love the pattern so far and how it’s working out but can’t seem to get the fin right. I am usually pretty good at figuring things out as I have been crocheting for a long time but can’t seem to get this one. Help please! Thanks so very much!!!!

      Yes, but she is very tall for her age..
      I was hoping that you would have the same pattern for older children. That’s is a very nice looking blanket, also easy for us beginners.
      Also do you have a shark pattern for 6 yr old and 10 yr old now the boys would like a blanket to.
      Thank you

    I’d like to use red heart in aran size as I have so much of it on hand, do you think the pattern would work as it is in that size? Or would I need to adjust the pattern, or maybe work with a double strand? Thanks!

    Hi, I started the blanket, but do to family illness I could not finish it. I’m trying to finish it know, but I don’t understand Row 27 if you chain 2 and continue from there you will always be uneven in rows.
    My understanding is to chain 2 then turn and continue to dc.
    Please explain which is right.
    Is there a update on the pattern? My granddaughter can’t wait for me to finish.
    Greatly appreciated.
    Terry
