Create your own beautiful mermaid tail blanket.
Includes large, easy to read font and color photographs of the process. You may also contact me for assistance if you require any help with the pattern.
This pattern uses two colors of yarn and a simple cable stitch to give the impression of scales. If you wish to use only one color, there will be a puckering caused by the cable stitch that will also give a scale effect. Photographs show a blanket made with Bernat blanket yarn (a chunky yarn). You may also knit this blanket using two strands of worsted weight yarn held together.
Separate instructions are provided for a blanket to be laid across the lap and for a blanket knit in a cocoon fashion. The lap blanket includes a cozy little pocket for your feet.
Written instructions are given to make a full-sized blanket (shown in photographs) with a width of approximately 81 inches (206 cm) or a ¾ size blanket with a width of approximately 58 inches (147 cm). The length of this blanket is approximately 54.5 inches (138 cm) from waist band to toe and 77.5 inches (197 cm) from waistband to end of tail fin.
Additional information is provided to assist you to make additional adjustments to the width and length of the blanket, as desired.
