Honestly, this may be too late to post, but Cartoon Network is sneak peeking an Adventure Time episode in an actual movie theater this week in order to qualify it for an Academy Award. For real. Basically, there’s an upcoming episode storyboarded by the incomparable Tom Herpich, “Thank You,” which the Powers That Be deemed Oscar-worthy. And while most of you are all, “ALL ADVENTURE TIME EPISODES ARE OSCAR-WORTHY, MEATHEAD,” this one is decidedly different. So if you’re in the Burbank area Wednesday and/or Thursday and want to get a glimpse of a future episode on the big screen, the showtimes those days are 11:20 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. The bad news is you will be required to pay full admission price; the good news is that cost does include admission to Dolphin Tale starring Harry Connick, Jr. And for you sad sacks who can’t make it, Cartoon Network will air “Thank You” in a slightly altered, longer form later this year.
This project was actually a custom request from a woman who works with my husband at Cartoon Network Studios on “Adventure Time”. She asked my husband if I could make the character, “Lady Rainicorn” into a scarf for her daughter’s birthday and I agreed.
The scarf was done completely in single crochet with random wool blends from a local craft store. I had an easy time matching colors since my husband works at CNS and lent his advice in my color choices. I began by chaining 255 stitches, then starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, I crocheted along the length of the scarf. Instead of turning, I put 3 single crochets at the end and crocheted along the bottom to form the concentric color rings. At the top of each curve, I increased 3 stitches to turn the curve. Each color has 4 rows. Once I switched to green, I decreased by 3 at the top of each curve. At the end of red, I crocheted the two ends together to close the scarf. This could also be done by sewing the ends together.I wish I could say more about the pattern, but I improvised the whole project.
This project was super fun and I’m glad it’s going to a good home!
