You'll be flipping that tail in no time at all working with a mighty 15mm hook! This fabulous Bernat mermaid blanket pattern is hooked up in Bernat Blanket Brights Big Ball, a giant 10oz ball of superset acrylic that works up fast on an 8mm hook. There are four fun colorways to choose from, why not make them all?   For a little bit of shimmer to show off those mermaid flips, combine a yarn with sparkles in it! Lion Brand Wool Ease Quick & Thick Metallics has a beautiful glitzy pale blue shade called Mystical (307) and Red Heart Stellar is a textured, variegated color yarn with a metallic core threaded through, take a look at Comet (9804) and Celestial (9944). Red Heart Gleam is a worsted weight shimmer yarn that you could entwine with any plain yarn too! Mermaids are magical, mystical creatures, so don't hold back on the shimmer!
