Norwegian computer programmer and skydiving champion Kjetil Nordin put over 800 hours of work into researching and crocheting this lovely recreation of the map for Super Mario Bros. 3 World 1.

Anyone with basic crochet skills and a whole lot of free time can make a map out of yarn, but Nordin went several extra miles, researching the exact yarn colors needed to emulate the map—which Reddit points out seems to be for the Super Mario All-Stars version of the game—going as far as to scrap an entire section and restart when the water turned out a bit too purple, as reported by NRK (via IGN).
