This man spent 6 years building a Super Mario Bros map blanket and it’s awesome!

Kjetil Nordin, 31 year-old Norwegian, is a big fan of Super Mario 3. He is such a big admirer that he made a perfect crocheted copy of the Super Mario Bros’s first map on a blanket. This blanket took him nearly 800 hours to finish and 100 balls of yarn. Kjetil even redid a massive section when he realized he had used an imperfect color for a certain part of the map.

Just check it out. It’s really awesome work.
