Frequent readers of this blog may recognize the style of the mitts, which I had been doing knit/crochet hybrid variations of last fall. However these Mermaid Mitts are more elegant in shape and are 100% crochet stitching.
The scaly barefoot sandals are a fun land-bound adaptation of the ever-popular crochet mermaid tail blanket. My sweet enabling friends must have shown me one picture or another of that blanket at least ten times last year! No wonder I had mermaids on the brain.
