Mermaid Tail Blanket Crochet Patterns Kids & Adults

Mermaid tail blankets are just the coziest, cutest blankets ever – perfect for snuggling down into to watch a movie on a cold day, or curling up with a good book.

Crochet them in advanced stitches like crocodile stitch that mimics the mermaid scales, in simple stitches and use self-striping yarn, or add extra shell and scalloped edging for a seaside feel.

Beginner crocheters can stick with more basic tails. While experienced ones might want to try a more textured blanket that involves an advanced stitch.

All of the patterns below are unique, stylish, and so gorgeous that you would not stop your hands without trying any one of them!
