I’ve wanted to make my own for a while, and just when I was making plans to use my blue scrap yarn, I got some custom orders for amigurumi dolls and a mermaid tail!
Yarnutopia has taught me a lot about crochet, so I’m considering this pattern, but I really like this video,

except it is in Japanese!

Here’s another video tutorial, she has two on her channel and I like this one because the shell stitches flow downward, the scales come down .

YARNutopia by Nadia Fuad

Several weeks ago, a few of my friends contacted me showing me a photo they found online of a mermaid blanket. Not all mermaid blankets were exactly the same, so I did my own research and used variations of different stitches and patterns I found on the internet, I created my own mermaid afghan. Since I borrowed stitches from several different patterns (including this pattern by Mad Hooker), I combined them to make my own in this exclusive FREE pattern that I have written. Below you will find the instructions to make 3 different sizes (Small, Medium, Large). You can use any combination of colors to create the scale look. This is an easy to follow pattern, and I highly recommend watching the video tutorial to follow along if you get stuck. Enjoy and Happy Hookin’! ~Nadia
