Crafty Intentions CROCHET PATTERN ADD-ON Merlion (printable PDF-file / 102 pages)

Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this pattern is for a EXTRA OPTIONS for the Merlion Pattern!! This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.


You can find the ORIGINAL MERLION PATTERN here:

This pattern comes with instructions to make FOUR MORE sets of fins and tails for the Merlion Pattern!! This pattern does NOT COME with instructions for the body, legs or head of the Merlion. This pattern DOES come with a second style of crocheted mane, and four more styles of all kinds of shapes of fins and tails to further customize your Merlion pattern!!!! This pattern features clear step by step instruction with a lot of row-by-row photos. The gauge is not crucial to the pattern as long as the stitches are tight enough to hold stuffing.

This pattern is a total of 102 pages containing a full set of written instructions with photographic illustrations, and there are video tutorials for particular steps and stitches available on my YouTube channel. This Pattern consists of ONE PDF File, and the last 34 pages are Text-Only, Printer-Friendly instructions, but I strongly recommend you still refer to the photographic illustrations throughout the pattern if you have any questions.

This Pattern is available in English, Spanish, French, and German.
