With so many mermaid tail blankets on the market, why would you want to buy a mermaid tail blanket pattern? For a few reasons:
- Color Preference – There might be a specific color that’s nowhere to be found to match your mermaid decor.
- Yarn Thickness or Style – While online crochet mermaid blankets can be quality yarn, you might want a special type or a certain material for your tail blanket. I’ve also had experiences where the tails don’t smell so great.
- Mermaid Project – Let’s face it, sometimes you just want a project to keep your self busy during the winter months!
- Detailing and Personalizing – A Mermaid blanket is a fun way to learn, and show them those newly learned stitches.
Does DIYing it make you nervous? It will take a while but how fun will it be when you can say “I made this.” Besides, there are plenty of video instructions that will walk you through it.
You can also find some free Mermaid blanket pattern tutorials online if you are a visual person!

Weather you buy online or make the mermaid tail blanket on your own, there are a few things I strongly recommend:
Crochet Mermaid Tail Blanket
Slit in the back– For crochet mermaid blankets, this makes it easy to put on and take off compared to a more sleeping bag style of blanket.
Open toed – Have enough room so your toes can move around. I hate feeling my feet constricted.
Fleece and Minky Mermaid Tail Blankets
For fleece mermaid tail blankets– I recommend doing a more minky fabric rather than standard fleece as that gets hot when on, and the fabric will get scratchy overtime.

This is the most basic but it also my favorite. Sometimes the best things in life are the simple ones.
