Crochet pattern for a mermaid tail blanket. Want to make a fun “lapghan” for yourself or as a gift? These warm and snuggly blankets will help to keep you warm when watching TV or just relaxing with a good book. The shell pattern has the look of overlapping fish scales. Choose a sparkle yarn to add to the fun. Other good choices are yarns with blue and green tones.
The upper part of the blanket is crocheted in the round without seams. The toddler version is made in the round from the beginning, while the two larger sizes start out flat and then are joined in the round after 20 inches (51 cm). The tail fin is made separately and attached with a slip stitch seam. Instructions for three sizes are included: toddler, child and teen/adult. This pattern is written in English using standard US and Canadian terms. Measurements are stated in inches and cm (metric) terms.
Toddler: total length is 38 in (25 in upper blanket and 13 in tail fin). Width at the top is 15 in ( 30 total circumference). Child:total length is 60 in (45 in upper blanket and 15 in tail fin). Width at the top is 34 in. Teen/adult: total length is 75 in (55 in upper blanket and 20 in tail fin). Width at the top is 40 in.
Toddler: total length is 96 cm (64 in upper blanket and 32 in tail fin). Width at the top is 38 cm in ( 76 cm total circumference). Child: total length is 152 cm (114 cm upper blanket and 38 cm tail fin). Width at the top is 86 cm. Teen/adult: total length is 190 cm (140 cm upper blanket and 50 cm tail fin). Width at the top is 102 cm.
Medium, #4, yarn is required and a size H-8, 5 mm hook. I would rate this pattern between easy and intermediate. You need to be able to follow the instructions for a shell pattern and to do some decreases. But don’t worry, step by step photos are included.
