From Pacman to Galaga, and Dig Dug to Donkey Kong, video games were started in arcades. Are you old enough to remember saving your quarters for a chance to try the Fiji course on Pole Position? Or finally passing the third screen of Mrs Pacman? These tiny crocheted arcade consoles will let you or some lucky recipient relive the glory days of 80s arcade play. They measure about 5” tall when made with worsted weight yarn and an E hook, as shown. Try them with super bulky yarn and a bigger hook for larger sized plushies or fine yarn and a tiny hook for tiny consoles.
Add a little loop of ribbon to the top and they’re perfect for ornaments or keychains.
