Now your child can be a mermaid while keeping toasty warm. This mermaid tail is crocheted using beautiful multi-shades of blue super soft and bulky yarn. The pattern is a shell to create the look of scales. The yarn gives a very thick, soft and luxurious feel. The blanket gathers at the bottom making a pouch for feet to sit in, while the main part of the blanket can be wrapped around the legs. Blanket measures 36 inches from waist to just above fin, and is 37 inches wide at the top. Recommended for child. Machine wash cold on gentle cycle and tumble dry low.
