Mario Free Crochet Pattern Afghan Star Blanket

Mario Afgan Star Blanket

Another free pattern from Happy Crocheting! Here is my Mario Free Crochet Pattern Afghan Star Blanket!

I always find it hard to find gifts to crochet for men. As Christmas was coming up I wanted to make something for my lovely boyfriend, but didn’t have a clue what to do. That is until I found this amazing Afghan Star Blanket! I thought I could use the star pattern to become the star from Mario – as he grew up spending many hours playing Super Mario Bros, Super Mario World and of course Mario Kart (which he still plays with me on the Wii). It’s a difficult pattern to read but 4 rows in it begins to flow and grows really fast. Part way through I decided I would create a little character icon for each of the points on the star (I did these all freehand, but if anyone wants a free crochet pattern for them please drop me an email and I’ll write them up). Fingers crossed he’ll like it – I will update on his response.

UPDATE: He loved the Mario Afghan Star Blanket, although as I’m always cold I think I have been using it alot more than him! But he does like it and was chuffed when he opened it. Afterall he loves Mario, he loves the fact that when I’m busy crocheting he can watch the footy in peace and who doesn’t like a good blanket to snuggle!

  1. This is so cute, must have taken forever to complete, love your freehand work. I can’t do freehand for my life.

  2. I would love to see how you made the figures of Mario, Toshiba, etc. I want to make this for my little girl, she I’d Mario obsessed! Thanks. Your work looks great!
