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!!



  1. Hi. I've downloaded the Southwestern Mosaic Cross Throw pattern, but am having trouble getting started. Do you have any photos of work in progress?

    1. I didn't take any until I finished, but I can do so if you want. What part exactly is troubling you?
