I was super inspired by PeaceLovesBrains flying/raccoon mario rug but I had no idea how to crochet. So after some trial and error and learning from youtube videos, I (reasonably) mastered the creation of granny squares. So after countless hours of crocheting in front of Seasons 3 & 4 of Dr. Who I created this awesome rug.  Grin



My progress after 1 day of putting it together


The dent I got in my finger from crocheting 197 granny squares

how big are the squares?  It just never occured to me that mario and all the figures are like cross stitch.  One block one color.  You have inspired many ideas!!

I love this.  Actually, I love all these mario granny square blankets.  I keep wanting to make one myself.  But, I get so bored making granny squares.  But, I am more inspired seeing this.  I think I will start finally making one.

the squares are one round which is about 2"x2" but some of the squares are bigger or smaller because of the type of yarn used
