I really tried to get my Christmas presents done in a reasonable timeframe of course that never seems to happen!!
For some reason, even with me following the increase instructions of the pattern, the tail was not getting wide enough to even fit on my cousin. Thankfully I was smart enough to ask my aunt to measure Ella so I had an estimation of what would fit her. So, with every project that ends up frustrating me, I set it aside until I could figure out what I was going to do.
Then one day I was browsing Pinterest aimlessly when a free Mermaid tail blanket pattern came across my feed. It was very customizeable and it could be finished in literally 3.5 hours. You can find the pin here. It required me to work with 4 strands at once rather than just two so I decided to mix the two shades of green to give it a unique look. I am very happy with that decision because this tail looks pretty badass! When it came to making the fin, I thought it would be a nice contrast to just do it in the dark green, don’t you agree?
I just shipped off both this and the Iron Man blanket so I seriously can’t wait to see what my cousins’ faces when they receive their very late Christmas/birthday presents!!!!
