2 Weeks...150 granny squares...and a boatload of fishing line later...

I replicated the idea of another crafter... enemyairship did the 7x7 flying racoon mario...which is *amazing* to say the least! I loved it so much I had to do my own...So I created my own pattern in excel...it was my first attempt and I just kinda winged it...then I got to working on my granny squares!

I sewed them all together with fishing line because it's clear...I didn't want to stress over conrasting yarn colors...and thread wasn't going to be strong enough...In hindsight I'm sure there was a softer alternative but I'll save that for another project. For now I'm pretty happy with him. Smiley


C&C welcome!




And one with my son for size comparison...This one is only about 4x5'



Thanks for looking!

Wow. I wish I had the patience to crochet all those squares. I bet your son loves it!

I did a Mario quilt top, and that took enough patience already.  Shocked

so did you just use a basic granny square to make these?  Just wondering, it looks really good and I'd love to try now too. Grin

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
