Hi everyone!  Here's another Mario related project of mine...actually I just noticed that the only projects I've posted here are Mario inspired!  I saw a project similar to this one on Ravelry and just had to have a go at it.  
This is a Piranha Plant scarf that I made for my bf's younger sister.  She's either a Junior or Senior in high school.

Our apartment kind of has a Mario theme going on...even the bathroom's decorated!

I'm kind of worried that she's too cool to wear this out.  Geek Chic is in though, right?  That kind of sucks if you're a real nerd-- because that's not cool.  It's only cool if you're pretending  Tongue

I used Lion Brand Jiffy Solids.  Originally I doubled up on the yarn when I made the green pipe, but it came out too thick and stiff.  So I started a 2nd green pipe without doubling up and it turned out soft and cozy.  

Here is the pattern for the Piranha Plant itself for those who want to have a go at this.  
Please do not resell the pattern or the finished product, thank you!

**pattern removed, long story.  please pm if you'd like me to email it to you!**

I like the scarf.  I like your place too.  Mario has been the only game I have picked up and I loved.  Is the plant's head crocheted seperate and then attached to the pipe?   good job!!

That's pretty cool.  I would be honored to wear it.   Cheesy

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

Thank you everyone for the nice comments!

Yes it's a separate piece, I can write a pattern for it and the leaves too if anyone wants to try this out.  Just say so if you're interested  Wink
