My lovely husband is kind of a Zelda nut, so for his 24th birthday I crocheted him this magnificent bastard for his man-cave...it took me about a month, and that's with my little fingers working at warp speed at every waking moment. I actually have a callus on my palm from my crochet needle! I'm so proud of it, it's like I suffered for my art. Smiley It consists of 162 worsted weight crochet squares, 4" each. This whole project was inspired by the fabulous Mario Racoon Rug by enemyairship.

He traversed the imaginary forests in our home, only to come across a mysterious chest. He opened it...


...to claim his prize! He literally made the "DOO DOO DOO DOOOOOO!" sound when he saw it! That was more satisfying than anything else Smiley
