Gamers who are familiar with the "old school" will instantly recognize the source of inspiration for the Legend of Zelda afghan. Created by Etsy merchant Penelope and Clyde of 8-bit crochet, this afghan features the iconic phrase from the original 'Legend of Zelda' game for the NES.

Long before the 8-bit game's phrase became a meme, it was one that was known to hardcore gamers everywhere as a symbol of the Zelda series. The Legend of Zelda afghan features a pattern inspired by the game and is made from 100 percent acrylic yarn. In addition to this Zelda afghan, Penelope and Clyde have also created throws inspired by 'Galaga,' 'Super Mario Bros.' and 'Pac-Man.' Penelope and Clyde are selling their Legend of Zelda afghan for $160. Stats for Retro Gamer Blankets Trending: Older & Warm
