Baby Mermaid Tail Cocoon  Crochet Pattern

I crocheted this baby mermaid tail cocoon recently and I love the way it turned out. I started out at first by using the crocodile stitch but thought that stitch might get baby's toes stuck in it, so I started searching for a tighter stitch that still looks like scales and I came across this free pattern that I altered a bit. I crocheted through round 30. It was about 22" long before the waist and fin were added. I used Bernat Happy Holidays yarn in the color Glittery Green. I used just under 7 ounces (2 skeins). As you can see I designed my own fin for this tail and also did my own stitch around the waist decreasing each round. I have crocheted this fin a few times now but have yet to write out the pattern for it. I will update this pattern when I make another one with the fin and waist pattern.
