Copenhagen, Denmark-based Nintendo fan and computer programmer Kjetil Nordin, who is originally from Norway, spent six years crocheting an amazingly detailed blanket of the Grass Land map from Super Mario Bros. 3. According to NRK, he put over 800 hours into the impressive project. More photos of Nordin’s geeky blanket are available to view on Facebook and Imgur.
Kjetil shared more information about his blanket with NRK:
