This pattern is for a knitted mermaid blanket in two sizes: S/M is 32 inches around hips when finished, and M/L is 36 inches around hips.
The finished product is stretchy to allow for pulling on and off over the legs. While some mermaid blankets are basically a pretty sack with a tail fin sewn on, this one has a 'pocket' tail fin so your feet can fit into it without feeling bound in.
The knitted stitch I've chosen is designed to appear as realistic 'scales' on the mermaid tail. I came up with this pattern after searching for 'the perfect mermaid tail blanket' and just not finding what I was looking for. Although the one pictured here is pink, I have also made them in blue and green as well.
This is a project for my Mum, she was very pleased with the pattern.
