"An amigurumi mermaid is such an elegant, beautiful character for your plushy collection, but a mermaid inspired by the koi fish makes for a crochet pattern that is as much fun to create as it is to behold. Koi fish are a majestic species of ornamental fish. They are a type of colorful carp from India, but they started being bred for their beauty in Niigata, Japan, and so they have a strong presence in Japanese culture and art. The Koi Mermaid pattern is very straightforward. If you have every made a top-down doll, she won’t give you much trouble. Her tail and elbows both have short rounds to add some bend in them both. Her tail bends in the middle so that she can sit on a shelf or she can sit with her tail bent up and have a little more character than your average flat mermaid. While Grace’s eyes are safety eyes, they have a lot of embroidery detail which is added to the head before they are installed to give it a more human feel."
