Here is the crocheted mermaid tail I made for my little niece. She is turning three very soon, I thought this would make a fun gift. It is a lap blanket that sits around your feet and then wraps around your legs.
If you are thinking of making a tail like this, beware the crocodile stitch is very very time consuming. It took me quite a while to make and I crochet fast… I used a thick dusty pink yarn from the Zeeman in Belgium, and a hook number five.
Here are some pictures of the front and the back and a detail of the top of the blanket finished with a scalloped edge.
Here is a link to the pattern that I followed, it’s not exactly the same, but pretty close.
Hope you like it. Have a great day and God bless.
