I slip stitched mine together using the back loops only and black yarn, so on the back it is a big grid of black lines.  Does that make sense?  I can post a photo of the back sometime if it would help.

39  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Legend of Zelda Blanket and Yoshi Egg Blanket on: January 15, 2012 01:23:43 PM
At the beginning of last year, I decided to make a wonderful swap partner of mine, Gspinn, a Yoshi egg granny square blanket and my husband a blanket based on his favorite video game for Christmas.  It took much conniving (and the help of a good friend) to figure out exactly what my husband's favorite video game is - Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past.  With my friend's help, I found some sprites online and went to work. 

I used the Yoshi blanket as a cover for all of the green, white, and black squares in the Zelda blanket!  I did the other color squares secretly and it worked!  He never guessed!  I managed to have it all pieced together and the edging stitched in time for Christmas, but just finished up weaving the ends this.  I finished the Yoshi blanket on time though!  Smiley  Anyway, here are the pictures -



On the floor in our living room.  (The weird corner is because I had to photoshop it as a projection in order to get a view straight from the front.)



It is about 8 feet tall and very snuggly!  Smiley  It has almost 300 squares in it, if I remember correctly. 



The Yoshi blanket covers a full sized bed.  I actually did not mean to make it quite so large, but realized it was going to be big much too late, lol.  The picture above is before I weaved in the ends. 





Gratuitous cat photo.  Smiley  Our cats approved of both blankets, which made it rather hard to work on them at times..... 



A close-up of one of the squares.  I used Caron One Pound yarn, which was nice to work with and had a decent selection of colors.  I hope you like them as much as I do!  They did take a fair bit of time, though I think I'm hooked on making blankets now.  The pay off when you finish is just so great!

C&C welcome!!!

Sorry it took me so long to post pictures jexxican!  I also apologize for the lighting in the pictures.  I haven't been home at all when it was light out all week. 

Jexxican sent me an awesome angel package!  She sent me a large flat rate box instead of a medium and it was packed with crafty goodness!  Cheesy  Onto the pictures -

Everything together -



Close up of some of the great fabric, zippers, and yarn -

Last, but definitely not least - Jexxican's own handspun!!!!!!!!



Thanks again jexxican!!!
