Our infatuation with the "Guitar Hero scarf" was just too great and we needed to know how to make one. Given the fact that nobody on staff -- well, at least, openly -- knows how to knit or crochet, we had to get to the source for the pattern. We spoke with Domestic Scientist Renée White, wh...

Before everyone goes marching on the Activision offices with torches and pitchforks in hand, understand that the company is not whoring Guitar Hero out to the winter clothing industry (at least, not that we know of). No, the scarf you see above was created by a crafter at the Domestic Scientist. T...

It's just starting to get a little chilly here in Chicago, so the timing on this Horde Scarf is just perfect for me -- it looks really comfy, and wrapped around your neck, it's just Warcraft enough to get noticed by people in the know, but is still classy enough that it looks like a cool design if...

Click for more images of the scarf Atlanta knitter Cassie (that'll be her boyfriend, Jason, pictured) is currently slaving away on what is likely to be the greatest scarf of all time -- a wool-based reproduction of the iconic World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. Yep, you read that right -- every jump...

Since we posted about The Mario Scarf last night, a handful of readers have pointed us to Tanya. While her story isn't nearly as romantic (there's no "knit for an engagement" scenario here), she is good. While we're at it, check out more gaming scarf stories from Joystiq's history. Check out the hi...

Here's a way to show you care: an Atlanta, GA schoolteacher (and obsessive knitter) is recreating World 1-1 in scarf form (based on this map from Ian Albert). The plan is, once she finishes, she and her boyfriend will get engaged. You can follow along with her progress at the aptly-titled The Mario...

Check out this pixel scarf we found via, erm, ffffound. We're too worried about clipping issues to ever wear pixelated clothing ourselves.

How can we amuse ourselves while we wait for Wrath of the Lich King to come out? One word: geekcrafts. Sure, you could go to Jinx or CafePress and buy some stickers or T-shirts, but then again there's all that waiting, what with the shipping and everything. Plus, although somebody made it, they di...

It's been a while since we've seen a Mega Man game akin to the ones of the days of yore, but now, yore comes in scarf form. Beatboxtaun, the same craftster behind the Punch-Out! scarf, has gone and designed some winter gear based on Mega Man 2 (a game which, incidentally, has one of our favorite v...

We can't help but love Little Mac, the quintessential underdog. If seeing him on your virtual console isn't enough, though, how about seeing him around your neck in the winter? You may have also noticed that this scarf has Mike Tyson's big mug on it, so you won't have to settle for Mr. Dream. Reali...

You can't get much dorkier than a) knitting or b) reminiscing about your misspent youth jerking the stick with Space Invaders. Combine the two, however, and you'll be the most fashionable kid at Legoland. Add a random sampling of mystery QR codes and you'll have Mister Green Jeans asking you for c...

The life-giving properties of the 1UP mushroom should never be underestimated, so as winter begins to tighten its chilly grasp around our exposed necks, what could be better than a whole chain of the little green buggers to keep you toasty warm? Etsy user UrbanPrincess crocheted this one-of-a-kind s...

We're not really scarf people. We can attribute this to two major causes: It's November, and we face the danger of melting every time we go outside A distinct lack of Tetris-emblazoned scarves This scarf from Etsy seller paintedfire goes a long way to address the latter, obviously, though e...

It happens a lot: you see some random NPC in the world wearing a certain item or clothing and you wonder "hey! Can I can a polearm like that somewhere?" You might even do some searching and find it's not available for players, only NPCs. Most often it's a weapon of some kind, but sometimes it's a p...
