Adult Mermaid Tail Blanket Knitting Pattern


You will have access to the pattern files in

Another file is also there to help explain yarn and needle equivalents.

This pattern has two options:
- knitting it as a "cocoon", by knitting in the round
- making it as a lap blanket, open in the back, by knitting back and forth

The first 2 photos show the open back style, which is made knitting entirely back and forth.

The two sisters goofing around are modeling the "cocoon" style, which is pulled up like a sock. You can make this style by knitting it in the round, or you can use the back and forth option, and then seam it up the back.

Ladies size small, medium, large, XL and XXL are given.

This "scales" stitch pattern is just perfect, and I can't emphasize enough how easy this stitch is to create. A REALLY fun project!

Materials needed:
29-inch long circular needle, US 11 (8mm)
Light worsted yarn (known as DK or 8-ply in some countries), 30 to 36 ounces. Two strands are held together, but some knitters liked their result using one strand of chunky.
If knitting yours in the round, you will also need a 16-inch needle and a set of dpn's.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object. Once you have paid, you will receive an Etsy order confirmation email with instructions for downloading your pattern pdf file, along with a file that tends to help if you live outside the USA, about yarn and needle terminology and equivalents.

About downloading onto a tablet or phone:
You must log in to your Etsy account through the web browser and look in the Purchases area up at the top right of the page to find the invoice and the link to click, rather than trying to download from within the Etsy app, or from a link in your confirmation email. That just doesn't seem to work.

You will also be able to download a file that describes the differences between US and UK yarn and needle terminology.

Digital downloads
File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I accept credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and PayPal as instant payments.

If none of these work for you, I will also accept a US check or money order by mail.
I'm sorry, but no Canadian checks or money orders. The fees to process them cost more than their face value, usually.

Returns & exchanges

I do accept returns on knitted items if returned immediately, but I cannot refund the shipping fee you pay to me, nor the money you pay the post office to send it back to me.

Additional policies

I welcome questions about custom orders.
