MERMAID TAIL BLANKET KNITTING PATTERN for children - For the adult version go to -
This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN written IN ENGLISH and NOT a finished item.
Mermaid Tail Blanket snuggle cocoon - the perfect gift for those who love to read stories and dream about the sea while snuggled up on the couch.
The stitch is inspired by fishing nets and the colors by the ocean - the blanket is simply gorgeous to wear - soft, stretchy and cozy - the mesh pattern is light but traps the heat to keep your little mermaid happy even when there's snow on the ground outside! The patter includes instructions for the sweet little headband with sea-rose, which you can make from the left-over scraps of yarn - mermaids need to be beautiful as well as cozy!
The fit of the snuggle is loose for comfort - it is NOT a fitted, figured tail so there is no real shaping involved except for the tail fins, where I give row-by-row instructions and stitch charts.
The snuggle blanket is knitted in the round so that there are no seams and NO sewing involved except for the joining the headband.
The tail is worked with three strands of yarn held together - 2 strands of DK and 1 strand of 4ply. It’s knitted on large needles so it knits up quickly. You could make it with Chunky or Bulky yarn but you’ll need to get the gauge right before you start.
The pattern is easy to master and fun to work - a satisfying knitting project for intermediate knitters. If you've followed basic knitting patterns and are ready for a large project this will be a great way to improve your skills. Each step of the design is explained in English and there are color photos to guide you through the process.
Written instructions are given IN ENGLISH for 6 children's sizes:
