Luna the Mermaid Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

My son Benjamin is the one who dictates for me what my next amigurumi character is going to be. I love that. Takes the decision making off me, right!? So, up next was supposed to be a Pterodactyl – I was excited because I’ve never attempted a dinosaur before! But, at the last minute he changed his mind to mermaid! The thought of the potential bright fun colors versus the dominantly brown pterodactyl was exciting. I also love that he has no care in the world over the little boy/little girl toy stereotypes. When I finished this Luna the Mermaid amigurumi crochet pattern (while he was out of town for the weekend), he was THRILLED!

Yes, I can admit it. I do put a level of pressure on myself for his valuable 4-year-old approval rating of these toys. I do make these toys for him (and his soon-to-come sister), after all!
