Angie's Quick and Easy Mermaid Tail Lap Blanket Crochet Pattern

This is the wildly popular crochet project of 2015-2016!

My daughter earned several thousand dollars last fall making these and selling them here on Etsy and on Ebay! Helped pay for her grad school and wedding! Check out all my pictures. She is in the dark blue one on my brown sofa. The other dark blue one is a Christmas morning picture of one of our customer's daughter. So fun!

She is not exactly a crochet pro, as she would happily admit, but this pattern is so easy, nearly mindless. So all those evenings while skyping with her dear hubby-to-be, she worked hard to keep up with orders.

Maybe you only want to make one for a handful of mermaid-crazy young ladies who are special to you, or maybe you would like to get in on the $ making fun. Either way. Permission is granted to sell what you make!

You can make it as a tube, or with the back open for easier on and off. Super bulky yarn and a big hook make it go very fast. I have some very specific yarn recommendations included, and I also give you the wraps per inch, so you can easily test a yarn to see if it is thick enough. You do want a textured yarn. There are some really beautiful and affordable ones out there, some of them self-striping like this teal one.

This is written in American crochet terms, but I know many of you are shopping from the other side of the Atlantic. So I have clearly written out the instructions, to eliminate any doubt, and I have everything in metric measurements as well as inches, plus you may contact me about anything you are not sure of.

I also try to post videos of the spots that seem to puzzle people, so be sure to give me your feedback via email.

Only in English for now.

All the sizes are included. Just print the first few pages if you are making it for an adult, or print the last few pages if it will be a child size.

I made these for all of the little girls in the extended family this year for Christmas. They love them. The body of the tail is quick to knit. I had some issues getting the fin to be the same on both side, but I solved that by folding it over itself on each side when I attached it to the tail. They look great. Thank you for the great pattern!

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.

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.
