Is it winter in your part of the world now? Here’s a DIY blanket that might interest you!

Crocheted Mermaid Tail Blankets

It’s difficult to enjoy your favourite show or a good book on your sofa when the weather is too cold to bear. This crocheted mermaid tail blanket is just perfect for for keeping your legs warm without having to crawl back to bed. Also, they’re nicer to see in the living room than a bed blanket. ;)

Someone experienced with crocheting can make one mermaid tail in just about four days. If you have tried to crochet before, you still have a lot of time to make yourself one and enjoy it for the entire winter season!

You can also still make some as a DIY gift idea for friends or family you don’t have gifts for yet. Kids especially will love this!

  1. I have made just one mermaid blanket and looking for other patterns. I Love the colors your chose for your video tutorial. Can you share the yarn selection in Picture 1 & 2. The pink/reddish one and the blue, variegated. Looks like a bulkier yarn?? Have you tried the blankets with Homespun?

    Thanks so much for the great video.
