Every girl's dream Review by Eileen

Very pleased with the results & my daughter absolutely loves it. What little girl never dreamed of being or pretended to be a mermaid?
I made this for my oldest daughter & still have to make one for my younger daughter. I did all extra rows to make theirs longer since the girls are on the tall-side (and still growing). Another change I made was attaching the tail. Instead of sewing the bottom of the body closed, then attaching the tail, I chose to do those together, alternating stitching the tail to the back, then front, then back... all the way across.
BTW - I made 2 of the child's versions for my nieces for their Christmas gifts. Not only did they love them, but Mommy, cousins, aunts and even grandma went ga-ga over them! Every girl's dream. No matter what age!

Easy and fun to make! Fast! Review by Karen

Ease of Use

I've made several of these and love them all! The pattern is easy to follow and quick to finish. My only complaint is that the instructions are in measurements instead of row count. For example, "repeat rows n to n until piece measures 32". I'd prefer to work with row counts so I've translated the instructions to rows on the pattern.

I've made a couple of modifications to the pattern that I like, as follows:

I've adjusted the length for taller people by adding 1 rep for each section which adds 12 rows in total.

Probably the most significant change I made was to use double yarn on the tail. This makes the tail section stiffer so it remains fanned out when the throw is in use.

Beautiful results! Review by Alice

My niece asked me for a Mermaid Tail blanket so I bought this kit. She loves shades of Green so I ended up using acrylic, worsted weight yarn from my own stash ratherthan the yarn that came with the kit (Mary Maxim has sold out of the colors she liked when I ordered the kit.) The pattern is easy to read and follow for the most part, but it took me much longer to make than I had anticipated. I put down the project many times to finish other things that seemed to move along faster. Shaping the decreases at the end (just before adding the tail) was a challenge. The tail is beautiful! After adding it to the rest of the folded blanket at the end I was more than pleased with it. I am making another one but plan to make it wider.

Beautiful Pattern Review by Marie

This was a fun project to crochet for my 6 yr. old great niece who loved this pattern. She picked out the 3 colors.and was so excited that she got to "design" it - perfect blue, merlot and silver. It is absolutely beautiful! Used the adult pattern size and just adjusted number of rows so it wouldn't be too long for her. Mary Maxim Best Value yarn is great.
