Crochet an Adorable Mermaid Tail Blanket

Have you seen the latest "must have" Christmas gift?  Mermaid Blankets have been so popular in 2016 and you can easily create one yourself. We made our baby one from a pattern on Ravelry created by user Jersey Ali. The pattern is available as a free download from her page

It's a simple pattern to follow using treble and shell stitch and as it's for a baby, quick to stitch up. We did make some changes however.... we extended the fins to make them appear more elegant and extended the length as it was just too short for any babies we knew! 

Ours was created using aran wool by Habico ( available instore) and used approximately 100 grams of wool. For an older baby or child just extend the length and add a few extra stitches to make it wider.

Christmas Wreaths

These Christmas Wreaths are so simple to make...

To make the pom pom wreath we used the small, medium and large pom pom maker from our Knit Pro set and made LOTS of assorted pom poms in red and green.

 We then glued them to a 35cm polystyrene wreath. EASY!

Our snowy wreath was created by crocheting a short scarf. Make a chain that will comfortably fit around a 25cm polystyrene ring. Then keep crocheting lines until the "scarf" is long enough to fit around the ring. When complete lay your ring on top of it, pin the sides together and stitch into place. Attach some white pom poms for a snowy setting
