I have been waiting on forever to design a mermaid tail blanket. I knew my girls will love it but I never found a pattern that I like it enough to hunt down the right kind of yarn to make it. Until this beautiful Caron Cakes yarn came out last year and I was like “this is it!”. I found the perfect yarn for my project. I decided to stop looking for other designers’ creations and designed my own Sophie mermaid tail blanket pattern for my little girls.
Caron Cakes Yarns are so beautiful, I stocked up on them when I could. Now, they have new colors came out and I need to hunt down the pistachio color, they are so popular and hard to get my hands on them.
Got my hands on some infamous Caron Cakes, lucky to get one ball of my favorite Faerie Cake color, it begged to be made into something beautiful, timeless and great for everyone. Always wanted to make a fake knit-look crochet beanie, I knew it was the perfect choice combined my love for knitting and crocheting. This is a one size fits most beanie (fits 18-24 inches), timeless and gender neutral. Thanks to the stretch of a fake knit ribbed pattern, it fits my almost one year old boy (18 inches head) with the rim folded up, it also fits my hubby head (23 inches) comfortably.
