Mermaid Tail Blanket - Adult
Knitting Instructions to make a Mermaid Tail Blanket / Cocoon
Create your own beautiful mermaid tail blanket with this knitting pattern!
Includes large, easy to read font and color photographs of the process. You may also contact me for assistance if you require any help with the pattern.
This pattern uses two colors of yarn and a simple cable stitch to give the impression of scales. If you wish to use only one color, there will be a puckering caused by the cable stitch that will also give a scale effect.
Written instructions are given to make a full-sized blanket with a width of approximately 81 inches / 205.7 cm or a ¾ size blanket with a width of approximately 58 inches / 147.3 cm. The length of this blanket is approximately 54.5 inches / 138.4 cm from waist band to toe and 77.5 inches / 196.7 cm from waistband to end of tail fin. Additional information is provided to assist you to make additional adjustments to the width and length of the blanket, as desired.
Separate instructions are provided for a blanket to be laid across the lap and for a blanket knit in a cocoon fashion. The lap blanket variation includes a cozy little pocket for your feet near the tail.
All measurements are taken with the blanket gently laid out, not stretched.
