Mermaid Tail Snuggle Blanket
Mermaid Tail Blanket snuggle Blanket - the perfect gift for those who love to read and dream of the sea snuggled up on the couch. The stitch is inspired by fishing nets and the colors by the ocean - the blanket is simply gorgeous to wear - soft, stretchy and cozy.
The fit of the snuggle is generous and loose for comfort - it is NOT a fitted tail.
Knitted in the round so no seams and NO sewing except for joining the headband.
The tail is worked with three strands of yarn held together - 2 strands of DK and 1 UK 4ply - Knitted on large needles so knits up quickly.
The pattern is easy to master and a satisfying knitting project for intermediate knitters.
Written instructions are given for 6 sizes. Find the adult version here.
