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.
