Mermaid Art Blanket - Half Done

I thought I was done with the "Mermaid Art Afghan"
until I realized I need to make it twice as big for a bedspread.
But, anywho...here's "half done"...
formerly know as "all done". 😉
See...it fits only half way up the bed:
and that's fine for an afghan but I would like a bedspread.

(This is the pretty mermaid art from which this afghan was inspired.)

 No ends to weave in as they become part of the fringe.

I started with the blue tones and ended with orange tones.
Now I will continue with orange and eventually end in blue.
So both ends will be blue - which i like best anyway!
(Must order more yarn.)

 I'm using the Puffy NOLA Sunset Afghan Pattern: 

Pattern found by clicking here.

Except I'm starting with 200 stitches instead of 182 stitches,
and of course randomly changing to the colors in the 
"Mermaid Art".

Thank for tuning in and as always,


  1. What fabulous colour combinations, Astri! I love the way they all blend in so beautifully. This reminds me of a sunset over the lake! Another gorgeous pattern from you! Well done!

  2. Wow absolutely gorgeous 😃😃

  3. Wow absolutely gorgeous 😃😃

  4. Absolutely beautiful! I don't blame you for wanting it to be bedspread size. It's quite stunning and looks amazing with your art. Love seeing it.

    Blessings - Julie

  5. Hi Elena!

    Thank you so much for purchasing the Puffy Nola Afghan pattern!
    The finished rainbow afghan measures approximately 39” x 52” (99 cm x 132 cm) not including the fringe. The finished mermaid blanket will be slightly about 3-4 " wider and as long as you would like to make it.

    Kind regards,
