Esty crochet artist ‘Harmonden’ creates incredible 8 bit style rugs inspired by classic video games. These geektastic creations range from Xbox controller rugs to pokeball rugs. 

These pixelated rugs are the perfect addition to any hardcore gamer’s home. The Xbox controller rug is my personal favorite because of its interesting shape. Also among these amazing rugs are Super Mario and Zelda related characters,such as Link and the 1-Up mushroom.

Every gamer loves 8 bit style games like Mine-Craft and Duck Hunt; 8 bit style serves as a reminder of a simpler time (childhood, not the 80s). The sweet pixelated memories of our youth give these rugs sentimental meaning.

These awesome game-inspired 8-bit rugs definitely geek up any living space. Whether you’re a Pokemon person or a Zelda fan, these crocheted creations will look great beside your game console.
