crochet in the movies...and tv!

today i digress from my usual knits on tv - these are crocheted items that tickled my fancy.

one thing clarissa didn't explain...where did she get this fetching granny square sweater?  i vaguely remember these sweaters making an appearance in the 90s, altho i never wore one (couldn't find one in my size, probably.  i was a big girl back then too).  i can practically see the acrylic fumes from this beauty.

i want this blanket:

this is the best picture i could find online.  it was a beautiful crocheted patchwork blanket in cheerful colors.

there was also a gorgeous owl pillow on the sofa (i think it was knitted, with loopy shaggy stitches) and darned if i can't find a picture of it either.  i dug around on etsy and ravelry too.  sigh  maybe i should try to design my own shaggy owl pillow?

see?  there was a good reason for seeing the smurfs movie!


  1. I'm trying to find the knitted owl pillow from the smurfs movie too! Can't stop about it...! I went on etsy too...if you find it please email me!

  2. I stumbled across your post while looking for photos of this blanket. I don't actually remember much of what happened in that scene because I was too busy trying to make a mental note of the colours used so I could remake it myself. LOL
    glad I'm not the only weirdo :) xx

  3. Hello,This is very funny I came by this website by accident. I was the set decorator of The Smurfs Movie and I always love when the audience likes the set dressing!! The owl pillow was purchased by my assistant Deborah Greene at " The Golden Calf" in Brooklyn

    The patchwork blanket was purchased wholesale from Pine Cone Hill- it is their "Pine cone hill crochet throw" I think they sell it online through other stores, just google it or you can contact Pine Cone Hill directly to see where you can get it.
    Hope this helps!!
