I can't believe that something this awesome exists, but it does. Marie from Minneapolis, Minnesota recently completed this incredible Mario-themed blanket:
My jaw dropped when I saw it. Marie credits CrossStitch Ninja for the creation of the original chart, which she scaled up to crochet. She started the blanket about a year ago, with several periods of hibernation, but look at it! I can't get over it! Here are some in-progress photos:
I think the reason this project is so effective is the diligent loyalty to the original colors of the game. Accuracy! Precision! NES Super Mario Brothers 3! This blanket has everything I need.
I would love to see a whole series of these- every level! Any crocheters out there interested in committing? I might have to learn how, just so I can represent my favorite world.
Thanks to Marie for sharing your project! Which Mario game is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
