Two-Color Mermaid Tail Blanket Knitting Pattern for Children and Adults


English only at this time.

This is a BEAUTIFUL 2-color stitch pattern, with no loops on the wrong side to snag your toes on!

Sizes included:

3 to 5 years
6 to 7 years
8 to 11 years
12 to 14 years
14 to 16 years
Adult Ladies Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large.

My granddaughter is enjoying a size to grow into. It is the 14 to 16 years size. Really thinking ahead!

Materials needed:
29-inch long circular needle, US 13 (9 mm)
Medium #4 worsted yarn (or DK, double knitting or 8- to 10-ply in countries outside the USA.)
Quantities vary by size, of course.
Two strands are held together, for quick knitting and a good blanket thickness.
A small amount of 1/2-inch upholstery foam for the fin.

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.

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.

IMPORTANT: This pattern is considerably more difficult than my one-color pattern. If you are not a confident or adventurous knitter, you may prefer that one:
Children's sizes:
Adult sizes:
As you might notice in the adult listing, you can use two colors held together in that pattern.
If you like this knitted-on fin better than the sew-on fin in the simpler one-color pattern, consider buying both, as this fin will work with the other pattern.

I accidentally bought this instead of the crochet pattern (I don't know how to knit) and I (embarrassingly) emailed Angie asking if there was anyway she could send me the crochet one instead. She did almost instantly and also sent me an alternative one that is just as beautiful!! Thank you so much!!

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.
