Rebecca and Elizbeth of the Texas Roll Mafia originally got together to form a cosplay group, but eventually transformed into a crafty art business. They’ve produced some impressive scarves that represent their cosplay roots with themes such as Captain America, Pokemon, and a sushi scarf just for good measure.

It’s amazing to look at the contrast between how abstract these scarf patterns look then they are unfurled to their full length, compared to when they’re rolled up to display an icon. I love that the knitting pattern for these scarves must be relatively simple, since they only consist of strategically placed stripes!
