EDIT 9/6/2014: Thanks so much for all the love on this, you guys! The pattern for this blanket is now available for free as charts which can be used for knitting, crochet, Tunisian crochet, cross stitch, etc. and can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mabel-pines-sweaterghan

I've been working off and on since January on this blanket, and now it's finally finished! Based on the Disney Channel (now DisneyXD) cartoon "Gravity Falls, each of the 42 8" squares in this blanket are based on sweaters worn by one of the main characters, Mabel Pines. Sweaters featured were worn mostly in season 1; one was worn in the inter-season animated shorts only and one has only appeared in the unaired pilot. The 24"x32" center panel is based on the series' logo. The finished blanket is 50" wide and 75" tall, which makes it officially taller than me by 10", which is absolutely fantastic!

I'm working on a comprehensive pattern and instructions to share sometime in the near future; I'll post that here once I get it done!

Wow, awesome! I've not actually watched the show but I've heard a lot about it and it always seemed cool. You did a really awesome job on the blanket! Definitely a fun idea for blanket squares. Very colorful, which I love. Cheesy

I love all things shiny, glittery, and colorful.

I don't need no instructions to know how to rock.
