Do you dream of being a mermaid? Mermaid tail blankets are the cosiest and sweetest blankets ever. They're oh-so perfect for snuggling down into to watch a movie on a rainy afternoon, or curling up with a good book! Crocheted into a fish tail shape with a fabulous flipper at the end, mermaid blankets can even be converted to shark blankets for those Jaws fans.

Don't buy your mermaid tail, crochet your own and make it suit your style and your life perfectly. Crochet your mermaid tail in simple stitches and use self striping yarn, or add extra shell and scalloped edging for a seaside feel. The possibilities are endless!
