How To Make a Mermaid Blanket That Will Make Your Child Happy



Ahoy Matey!!!

What does a tropical island, ocean and pirates have in common???  Any guesses???  Well it could be rum, planks or swords.  Or it could be the “Magical Mermaid” of sea lore.  This raises all kinds of feelings and emotions in people. We want to believe in the magical and unexpected.  I can see where the Mermaid just dove into the water off the beach of that island across the way.  I wonder how long it will take her to make it to us?  When I think of mermaids I instantly think of their tails…don’t you?  The blues…the greens…the unique colors only associated with mermaids.  I think of beaches with all kinds of shells to pick from…maybe a starfish or two.  What is all of this leading to well I completed my 1st custom order from “OffTheHookByChrissy” and guess what it was????  A Mermaid Tail Lap Blanket, that’s what.

I followed a pattern that was written by Nadia Fuad of YARNutopia for the body of the blanket.  See link below.

For my mermaid fin I did my own thing for the fin.  Also, I added some shell and starfish detailing.

The body pattern is crocheted shells which is Oceaney.  Is that a word?  That was the reason I picked this pattern from Nadia.  She has lots of wonderful patterns.
