Our Generation Doll Mermaid Tail Blankets

When I was making Our Generation doll clothes last year, I found a pattern for doll-size mermaid tail blankets and knew I had to make one each for my niece's OG dolls.

I found this lovely wool, James C. Brett's Marble, and just knew it would look a bit like shimmery mermaid scales! The lighter tail is in shade MT45, and the darker tail is in MT41. Because it is double knitting wool and the pattern uses bulky, I had to adapt both the number of stitches and the number of rows. I used a 10mm hook with 2 strands of DK, and each mermaid tail took less than one ball of wool.

The back has a slight opening to help fit the doll in, and they're quite forgiving in terms of fitting other dolls and even teddies inside them! They make up quite quickly too, so I'm really pleased with them.
