    $\begingroup$ If they have the same amount of vertices try selecting all rings and Bridge Edge Loops $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I edited your post, because in Blender, the designation merging is used for a different operation than you are asking for. Merging is the act of taking two or more vertices, and combining them into a single vertex. $\endgroup$

You can create a surface from edge rings using the Looptools Loft tool or use Blender's default operator Bridge Edge Loops.

LoopTools addon

If you don't have the Looptools enabled, enable them through the user preferences: enter image description here

To use the Loft tool, select your loops in the order you want to connect them (the order is important).

Then either go to the Tools panel on the left --> Looptools --> Loft (as seen in the gif above).

Or: open the specials menu using W --> Looptools --> Loft.

Bridge Edge Loops

Select edge loops, press Ctrl+E > Bridge Edge Loops (or find it in menu of 3D View header: Mesh > Edges > Bridge Edge Loops).

bridge edge loops

    $\begingroup$ Blender's default 'Bridge Edge Loops' does the same as 'Loft'. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 3, 2016 at 13:42
  • $\begingroup$ Right, thanks @RayMairlot and thanks for the edit, Mr Zak $\endgroup$
