Bulky & Quick Mermaid Blanket

Our Bulky & Quick Mermaid Blanket has been updated!  It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 4 years since the release of this pattern.  My first ever published crochet pattern!  This is my second most popular Viral design behind our Hooded Owl Blanket . The mermaid is still my favourite design to make!  It seems to never get old with all the fun colour combinations. You can easily make our Mermaid Blanket in 3-4 hours and our Large Adult Budget Friendly blanket for under $30! Yes Please! Get your pattern HERE!

Pattern is suitable for a beginner and includes a full video tutorial on our webpage (coupon is provided in the pattern). Our update includes; Infant, Preschool, Child, Adult and Large Adult size. Below is our preschool shown with a solid coloured fin and edging.

I’ve had so much feedback over the years and so many of you wanted a video.  I hope that this video will answer all your questions and helps you to create your own beautiful mermaid blankets!  The original pattern will give you a thick, heavy and warm blanket.  Our Budget friendly version will make a lighter and slightly smaller blanket.

The video will show you how to fold your blanket up into a cute little pillow. Place on your chair, couch or bed for easy storage.
