I just finished up a geeky superhero throw pattern for you to make for your couch! Of course my family of nerds loves it, and it'll be joining our other movie themed basement articles for display-slash-leg-warming purposes. I saw other Captain America afghans out there but many of them seem to require sewing the star to the center. That's fine and dandy, but I didn't want to have to do that because I'm a little lazy. So...I set out to make a star-in-circle shield motif without having to sew or piece together anything. If you want, you can stop at the end of the motif and have the perfect sized place mat. Make several. They'd look great on your table. While you're at it, make a gift set of place mats and a throw for your favorite superhero buff. Head on over to Etsy or Ravelry.
