**This pattern should fit most barbies and fashion dolls….I have made many of these tails and have several patterns wrote this is just the one I finally have been able to post once I find the others I will post them too..I have made several different types and sizes right now I am working on one for an 18 inch doll…I am not sure if she is american girl or not since I found her at a thrift store all I ask is please respect the creative license and give me credit for using my pattern if you decide to sell anything you make do not claim the pattern as your own it will upset me since I did this as a payback and thank you for all the wonderful free crochet patterns on the net by many talented people if you find any errors let me know I will note them and fix them….this first tail has curly fins I do not know why but I kinda like them so enjoy!!!**

Materials:  small gumband or I used a soft ponytail tie thingy that fits nicely around the doll’s waist (yes that is a technical term) size F hook (I always use a smaller hook so my stitches are tighter if you can use something bigger to get the right size do so) red heart or any other worsted weight yarn you want in any color I had green and brown so the choice was green lol and well scissors of course;)
