Darling Mermaids

I am very happy to announce the release of my latest ebook, Darling Mermaids.

This ebook was inspired by Pushing Daisies, many hours spent on the beach, and fondness for all things mermaid.  It started as a cowl pattern and because I liked the motif so much, quickly snowballed into a hat, mitten, and baby blanket ebook.

The hat comes in 2 sizes, 19"/ 48cm in circumference and 22"/ 56cm in circumference.  It is knit using sport weight yarn.

The cowl comes in one size, 32"/ 81cm in circumference, and is a simple tube.  The chart is repeated 6 times around so the cowl can be adjusted to be more snug.  It is knit using a fingering weight yarn.

The mittens are one size, 9.5"/ 24cm from palm to fingertips and 8"/ 20cm in circumference around palm above thumb.  The measurements do not include the ribbed cuff which can be adjusted to personal preference.  The mittens are knit using a sport weight yarn.

The baby blanket is one size, roughly 1 yard/ 91cm square.  The example was knit in a rectangle and does not perfectly reflect the pattern.  It is knit using worsted weight yarn and the back is lined with fabric.  This is the hardest pattern of the bunch.  In order to make the blanket you should be comfortable with steeking and hand sewing.
