There is something romantic and sinister about the mermaid. She pulls you in the song, then wraps around you like seaweed. This piece is named for one water-spirit, from a German fairy tale, who marries a mortal man to obtain a soul. The skirt uses a hand-dyed yarn with colors of the ocean and a lace pattern reminiscent of shells and seaweed.
Gently soak in water and use a semi-ridgid wire and flexible wire to help keep the shape while shawlette is drying. Enjoy accent details with tiny beads and scallop edging.
