Knitting Instructions to make a Mermaid Tail Blanket / Cocoon - Adult - PDF - Instant Download - Instructions in English

Featured on the Etsy Homepage - this mermaid tail blanket is one of our most popular knitting patterns.

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.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

General washing instructions: Machine wash in cool water, delicate setting with a mild detergent. Tumble dry, low heat, delicate cycle or lay flat to dry. Exact washing and drying instructions may vary based on your choice of materials.

Average review
Seller unresponsive. Reached out to the seller because the pattern wouldn't download. Seller even says that if you have issues to reach out to her. Attempting to make these as Christmas presents, so I'm on a time crunch. Buyer beware seller is not responsive. Don't waste your money. Wish I could get mine back...

The pattern is great and I love that I was able to send her a message to ask for clarification on the pattern. Very responsive; I sent the message late at night and received a message the next day, which was great so I could continue working on the project.
