Mermaid tail has become a big thing, isn’t it ? There are so many versions of this cutie out there. And I think any girl would be so happy to have one. So does my daughter. She has become a big fan of mermaid tail. She always want to try it even before I finish.

I do not really like the plein colors or dark colors of mermaid tail blanket. In my mind, mermaid tail is definitely mysterious and divine.

So in the end I chose to adopt this self-strip yarn in blue shades. And on top of that, I mixed the yarn with a strand of sequin yarn which  adds some shining textures to the tail. In total, it looks mysterious and divine, doesn’t it ?

I made a todder size for my daughter and took me around 15 hours to finish this one. I really like the grey shades mixed with gray blue, dark blue and light blue. It reminds me of the sea.

Another good thing about this pattern is it has an opening back which allows you to easily get in and out.
