Item details

Mermaid tail blankets are the hottest trend this season, and every little girl wants one of these blankets this Christmas. Make in a single color, or use two or more of your daughter's favorite colors.

This is a child sized blanket. The finished piece will measure approximately 31 inches long without the fin and 23 inches wide. If you are looking to make a bigger blanket, my adult size mermaid blanket pattern is sold here:

This listing is for the pattern only. Please contact me if you wish to purchase a finished blanket.

This crochet pattern is intended for intermediate to advanced crocheters. A working knowledge of the crocodile stitch is required.

This pattern uses Caron Simply Soft yarn and an H hook. You will need approximately 1500 yards of yarn for this pattern. I recommend using Caron Simply Soft yarn, but any worsted weight yarn will work.

I had no issues with my purchase. This pattern was easy to follow. I made it with Red Heart Super Saver "Candy Print", which is a pink ombre. turned out awesome. My granddaughter loves her new lap blanket. Thank you for creating this lovely pattern.
