Mermaid update!

As anyone who really knows me knows, I am the worst procrastinator when it comes to literally anything. I've been known to put off writing a single paragraph for an assignment by writing two page family newsletters about the proper way to grow pumpkins and watermelons. Currently I am procrastinating getting ready to go back to school. Honestly, I really should get on it seeing as I'm pretty much back to school next Tuesday but as I've already mentioned, #1 procrastinator right here.

The newest means of escape I have is actually something I've been meaning to do for the last few years anyways; update my Mermaid costume pattern!



My Mermaid costume was the first pattern I ever made so I know it has some flaws but I also don't necessarily like revisiting patters once I've finished them, so it was put on the back burner. For one, I know the stitch counts and increases are terrible but when I made it I honestly wasn't too worried about re-making it so to me it didn't matter (I didn't even write down the pattern). I actually had to wait months before I could get the costume back from my aunt to count my stitches and try to remember what exactly I'd done.

Seeing as how popular the pattern has become though, I wanted to try to update it and create a better pattern to follow and also include ways to increase the size. I'm not going to be redoing the Starfish top as I haven't had any complaints about it but I've definitely been reshaping the tail and making more even increases. I'm actually about 3/4 of the way through the tail so I'm going to promise to have the new pattern up at the very most in two weeks.

After this I'm going to be low on crochet pattern ideas; is there anything you guys would like to see me make? Anything I need to fix on my old patterns? Let me know!
