Mermaid Tail Blanket Pattern



I’ve been making Mermaid Tail Blankets 
for a few years now 
and finally took a the time to write it down!

 I love working with big hooks and chunky yarn, 
so this pattern 
works up a lot 
quicker than it looks.
And it can be adjusted for size very easily.


Important notes before you begin:
-The full pattern below is for an older child size (which works well for teenagers too, depending on height)
- It’s worked from the top to the bottom (decreasing as you go).
-The foundation chain to start will determine what size you are making. (make less chains for baby size/make more chains for adult size)
-A Bernat Pop is great to use along with 2 strands of a solid colour to match (the amount of yarn will vary depending on size, hook, and yarn weight)
-I use 3 strands of yarn at the same time to make this blanket extra squishy
