My first foray into “game crochet.” I’m using the Tunisian crochet version of the “10 Stitch Blanket” on Ravelry. I am watching crappy horror movies with the hubby and I switch colors anytime something on my list happens. This picture is after the first movie called, “Curtains.” It was awful and there probably would have been more changes, but I was also figuring out the pattern as I went. Stay tuned for more. And I hope to see your projects in the “game crochet” tag. :D

I know that I’m not really a knitter, but one of my friends posted a BuzzFeed article called, “19 Impossibly Clever Knitting and Crochet Patterns.” Most of the stuff listed in the article were things that I had already seen or heard about, but number 9 caught my attention. It’s called “Game…

Oh how I need this!

And to think I’ve been missing out because I can’t don’t drink.

I am … intrigued.

COLOR CHANGE EVERY TIME SOMEONE SAYS TESSERACT!

Stitch change when the narrator on Ancient Aliens asks a question in a way that makes it sound like they’re stating a really stupid fact! Color Change for Ancient Astronaut Theorists!

(Gotta say, there is no way the Mood Scarf kit linked in that article would work for me.  I’d need about four times as many colors and I’d need a LOT more of the yarn that represents “anxious”.  And why isn’t there a color for “angry”?  You’re allowed to feel angry.  It’s a valid emotion.)

Your last sentence made me smile because on an given day in my two-year-old classroom you will here me tell a child, ” It’s ok to be angry, but we can’t hit/kick/bite. Why don’t you stomp your feet/clap your hand/cross your arms instead?”

I’m so glad this has gotten so many notes because I really want to see people start doing this!!! I want to throw a party and we all work on something different, with different variations, while watching the same movie or tv show! So someone is changing colors on a scarf while another person changes stitches on a hat, while another person adds some form of embellishment on their fingerless gloves. I want this very badly!!!

So have you heard of “game knitting”???

I know that I’m not really a knitter, but one of my friends posted a BuzzFeed article called, “19 Impossibly Clever Knitting and Crochet Patterns.” Most of the stuff listed in the article were things that I had already seen or heard about, but number 9 caught my attention. It’s called “Game Knitting” and it is an idea that a person put into book form and you can read all about it HERE

The gist of it is, you are playing a drinking game with no alcohol, but with your knitting (or in my case crochet). You come up with a list of things that happens in a movie, tv show, podcast, etc (or just find a drinking game you like and use that list) and whenever one of the listed actions happens you change your pattern. This can mean a color change, a stitch change, adding a cable, beading, or anything really. 

There is a book you can buy that gives you a few basic patterns and variations to try in your knitting, but I’m just gonna wing it and try this soon. Sorry for the long post, but I thought this was awesome!!! So have fun. And let the games begin.
