This is a kind of different, special piece of crochet I just had to attempt after seeing a photo of a similar sleeping sac. Little Baby Mermaids are probably one of the cutests I think 🙂
I used all the different blue-ish wool I had (some are just rest pieces) to create a sort of watery feel throughout the pattern, which is basically made of of shells (5 dc & loops to create chain spaces for the next row of dc-shells).
The top border which will come up to the baby’s chest area is done in light green (very stretchy wool) with two purple buttons
There is a pair of extra button holes to make it tighter for the newborn stage^^^
The fin at the end is done in single crochet stitches but in back-loop only to create that riff-raff feel.
In the very end, I added some sparkly buttons representing some drops of water & I’m glad it worked so well.
Baby has not arrived yet, so I can only imagine how cute it would look with her in the sleeping sac!
