Love this Purple Mermaid Lapghan pattern! My pre-teen Grand daughter has been asking me to make something like this for here all year. The only patterns I've found uses twice the amount of yarn and a totally different stitch that I wont name here.. This pattern reads well and I know I can do this one with out using 24 balls of yarn. I love the color combination and will go buy these yarns.. So happy and a Big Thank you for this free pattern!
