How it Started
The daughter asked me if I could do a Super Mario Odyssey Blanket. I said ‘maybe’ then she said, ‘the game isn’t out yet but I can show you the trailers’.
Then after watching the trailers over and over again an idea started to formulate in my head. Out came my trusted design book (the one that I posted a photo of under the Bond project although now it is more fuller and more sheets stuffed into it). With the idea now sketched I had a good idea what I was going to do.
The blanket will be slightly bigger than a single bed size (approx 4′ x 6′ 8″ long). There will be 9 blocks – 1 large block, 4 medium blocks and 4 small blocks.
As I live in Northern Ireland I use the UK crochet terminology.
All graphs have been done in double crochet (this is single crochet in USA crochet terminology).
Tension changes from person to person and changes during each person’s crocheting.
I have used a 4mm hook, double knitting yarn and my 4 inch x 4-inch tension square is 17 stitches x 20 rows.
I am using Stylecraft Special DK. Each panel/block has the colours used and amount needed on the page for the graph/pattern.
Amount needed for full blanket is MATERIALS NEEDED
