Mermaid blanket /afghan for a little girl

My daughter is so happy over her mermaid blanket, that I made another smaller one, to fit a 5 year old sweet little girl. The pattern is almost the same, but I made the opening longer, so it will be easier to get in and out of the tube. She can either hold it up over her whole body, or fold the top down if she wants to have her hands free to read a book. 

The yarn is the same as the last time: Caron Cakes in the colour Faerie Cake from Michael’s and crochet hook 6.0 mm. I used 3 cakes (=600 gram or 1050 meter). )

I made the fen smaller, so the blanket wouldn't get too heavy..

The back. I could have left an even longer opening.

My drawing used as pattern. I measuerd the first mermaid blanket I made for my daughter and made a smaller version of it.
