This World’s Biggest “Mario” Fan Spent 6 Years Crocheting A Super Mario Bros Map Blanket

In life, there are few things better than snuggling up in a chair or on the couch and enjoying a nice session of video games. But one man just made gaming even more comfortable. Kjetil Nordin, a 31-year-old Norwegian who may very well be the world’s biggest Mario fan, spent 800 hours over 6 years crocheting a 7’2″ x 5’10” blanket of the World 1 map from Super Mario Bros. 3. He paid such meticulous attention to detail that he searched out the perfect colors and shades of yarn. At one point, when one color didn’t look right—too purple instead of blue—he spent a week undoing all of the progress he had made on the map’s water. During his six-year project, he also got two university degrees, started a career, won two Norwegian Sky Diving championship and even made smaller crochet figures for his family… Honestly, this thing is so cool. Can we just stop for a second and see HOW COOL it is? Have you ever heard of such dedication to video games? Give your friends a gentle SHARE, and they will appreciate you!
