Hello Merbabes !
So Summer is creeping up on us faster than I ever expected and along with it comes the little summer tradition of “Fun Pops” !! Or as me and my family called it growing up, “Bolis” (Thank you @Crafty_Mommyx2 on Insta for helping me find the right spelling for it lol)
But as always some Summer treats have their flaws in the heat and with that came wet and cold hands that couldn’t stand holding their pops without the ache and losing feeling in their fingers hahaha so here’s my solution !! Behold the Mermazing Fun Pop Holders !! To make it even better I’ve decided to post it on my little bloggie for FREE !
I also wanted to give the option to have the pattern as a printable for a small little fee so if you want a printable version of the pattern without the ads which also includes a little diagram click HERE to purchase on Ravelry or HERE to purchase on Etsy.
This pattern is very quick and a great stash buster and it goes great with any color combination you desire! Big thank you to my Instagrammer ladies @ashleyscrochetshoppe @hooknstein @angelbunny_creations, @hooksandtwist, and @momabcrochet for testing and sending in such amazing pics of their Mermaid Tails

I’m confused about step 1. How do I end up with 14 stitches here? Thank you!
Hello when you hdc in 2nd and after you’re going to hdc 3 in the last st making the work rotate a bit to where you will hdc now on the bottom of your just worked hdc Row. So instead of ch turn, you hdc around the starting chain
Thank you so very much for the free mermaid pattern, I haven’t made it yet but I will. Thanks again
I tried out your pattern, and figured it out, though I confused myself a bit with it, honestly (Totally my bad, I reversed the parts, and couldn’t figure out why what I was working on didn’t look like what I thought it should.) As a suggestion, perhaps you should rename the section you have marked as ‘tail’ to ‘holder’ or something like that. Personally, when I think tail on a fish, I think the fin. That could just be me.
I did edit it slightly. I hate sewing, so I did the fin first, and then, instead of cutting the yarn at the end, crocheted the first row of the holder section in the front loop of the edge row, and then went around to the back loop, and went up from there. Looks nicer, I think, and I feel it’s a bit easier.
Hey ! Thats actually a good alternative to make the pattern in one continuous project ♡ Im so glad you got it after all ^-^ thank you so much for sharing that little crochet hack ♡
FYI you step by step pics, the links are broken and dont show up
