Kiss the Girl: Little Mermaid Inspiration Sampler Blanket Pattern

Kiss the Girl: 

Little Mermaid Inspiration Sampler Blanket Pattern

by Elizabeth Mareno

Kiss the Girl was designed as part of the Mermaid CAL that I hosted in April-May of 2018. This design was one of two. The other is called Under the Sea. Both designs feature characters and colors inspired by Disney's Little Mermaid movie from 1989. 

Little Mermaid is one of my favorite movies of all-time because the year that it came out on video I worked for a VHS video rental store and I watched this movie every time I worked. I knew every line by heart. Not just the songs- the WHOLE movie! Haha. So, when I was thinking about what I would want to create an inspiration blanket for, Little Mermaid was a no-brainer. 

Kiss the Girl is lacy styled blanket. It is as lovely as a baby blanket as it is for a best friend. The characters represented by various stitches throughout the blanket are:
Sebastian- using the Calypso Crab stitch which I created just for this blanket
Ariel's Sisters
Flotsam & Jetsam
King Triton

I believe this blanket is an awesome chance to challenge yourself as a crochet artist. I have created, and freely supplied, videos on YouTube to help you through the pattern from beginning to end. 

Here is a link to the free Calypso Crab Granny Square pattern on my blog if you would like to play with the pattern a little more!
