Shortly after teaching myself to crochet, I decided to make a Super Mario granny square blanket for my brother. After seeing my progress, my husband requested one for himself. However, I could not let my husband have the same blanket I made my brother....oh no, my friends. His had to be so much....MORE. I woke up in the middle of the night and had the beginnings of the blanket in my head. I scribbled out a rough draft of a map and was so giddy, I had a hard time falling asleep. I had never used Tunisian crochet before, so I had to practice.
After a few wonky attempts and botching my way through a few panels, I finally figured out how to change colors correctly using Tunisian Crochet. After seeing my Super Mario Obsession Blanket on my blog or on various websites world-wide, I received many questions/comments of, "Huh??? How did you do that???"
This video demonstrates how. You'll see the original map of my design as well as 2 pictures of the sprites I used (and the little maps I drew to help me along) to crochet 2 of the panels of my blanket. Then I'll show you how to change color within a row using just 2 colors and then using multiple yarns for more difficult colorwork.
