Crocheting it old school with the Mario Brothers (and their friends)

The Mario Brothers are a classic on the gaming scene. Many of us grew up with Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and Princess Peach, and we look forward to every new Mario Kart and Super Smash Brother release. Whether you want to look like a hero or a villain, we’ve got you covered.

The Legend of Zelda’s crochet hooks

This franchise also belongs to Nintendo, and I don’t even care that there are over 20 games in it’s timeline. I’m a Hyrule resident for life.

 Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Some of us shunned consoles in favor of handheld devices, and the Gameboy reigned supreme as the undisputed best handheld system for a long time. I don’t know about you guys, but Pokemon was my ultimate favorite Gameboy game. (Spoiler alert: I did, indeed, catch them all.)

Pokeballs by the RibbelMonster blog

When we collected Pokemon cards, we knew that Charizard was the card to get. They sold on eBay for buckets of cash, and most of us never even saw one. This free pattern means you can have your very own Charizard!

    I would LITERALLY love you FOREVER if you could either Design, or find ANY Halo patterns. The Halo Video Games are probably the best (and my 100%, #1 favorite game(s) of all time) Games and comics ever made.

    • Angie says:

      Hi Cassie!

      I haven’t seen any, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. You may have even inspired me to design something new! I love Halo too and it could be fun to have some patterns to show our enthusiasm. Happy crocheting!
