I made this for Schnerby in a swap. I was thinking of making some sort of Mario themed afghan for her and then I saw one of her first posts on this site. It was a color chart for a Mario quilt. It was a sign. I couldn't resist  Smiley So it is made from her own pattern. The link to the chart was dead so I just used the image she posted and took it into PCStitch to make a chart. There isn't a pattern, but one isn't needed. It is all Tunisian simple stitch.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

I love this!  It's really cool that you made her an afghan using her chart too.

I know you have the meter stick there for reference, but I was wondering about how wide the squares are.  It looks like they're a little under a foot?

And by meter stick, I meant yard stick (hopefully, if it's a meter stick then I really have no clue how big the squares actually are, ahhahahah)

Thanks for the comments ladies. It took me a little less than a month, working about every day, all day. I had to take a break, as hunching over was killing my shoulders. I can't remember how big the squares were, but a little under an foot tall sounds right. The aren't exactly square. So I think they were about an inch wide. It was all worked in one piece.

Wow, this is awesome! Really cool, I'll have to hide it from my kids or they'll bug me forever... the number of motifs, and they look all so good together, congrats on this huge project (and I can't believe how fast you were). Did you work the whole afghan on one needle, or did you make the squares separately?

It was all made on one hook, together... row by row. So it is all one piece, I didn't want to sew squares together, I'm bad at that  Wink
