Mermaid Tail Blanket Pattern

This pattern is classed as beginner-friendly and can be made to suit children through to adults. It’s a lovely handmade gift that anyone would be thrilled to receive and whips up in less than 2 hours.

Maggie says to adjust the pattern to suit a child-size you simply cast on fewer stitches and knit fewer rows on the body.

Around 15 stitches for the body and knitting around 20 rows should give you the perfect size.

The pattern includes handy tips for making perfect stitches, plus a video tutorial to show you how.

The finished adult size is – blanket body 42″ long, fin 17″ long.

The length from the top of the blanket body to the bottom of the fin is 59″
