The mermaid blanket is great to look cute in around the house and is similar to an Afghan. It provides some warmth and is stretchy so it can fit a child or a large adult. It has a hole in the fun so you can put your feet all the way in and walk around if you wanted. The back has a slit if you wanted to drape over your arms. It's good for any time of the year to make yourself look like a cute mermaid.
