Crocodile Stitch Mermaid Lap Blanket

Here it is in all its glory:

I really loved doing this blanket. It was fast because each color row I have to cut the yarn and do a new color per row, and I liked being able to do a row and feel accomplished by finishing it, and so I felt like it moved really fast. Which it did anyway. Even though the crocodile stitch is a bit of a yarn eater, the whole blanket is done in mostly just double crochet stitches, (tail is half-double crochet), and so it goes so very fast. Using different colors helped too. I was able to use up a skein of red that was manufactured by walmart years ago, and is out of production. One skein isn't much so I didn't have anything to use it on. This blanket was perfect. I used up the whole skein, and even had a small thread left. A good project for using up a skein when you can't find it to purchase more.

It came out really soft, and very warm. I really like the idea. Hope you do to!!
