Let’s go get a Slushie. Of all the teenage cult classics, Heathers remains one that stands above the rest. It was truly a trailblazer, far ahead of its time and still remains poignant and modern to this day. One of my favorite things that have happened in recent years is the revival Heathers had with its Off-Broadway musical namesake. There has been many a film converted to the stage, with varying degrees of success (looking at you, Spiderman: Turn off the Dark). The Heathers, however, is what the other companies wish they could achieve. The newest adaptation of the series (I’m not even entertaining the notion that the TV show counts) is the best case I’ve seen of an adaptation capturing the essence of its source material. Honestly, I like it even more that the Mean Girls musical and you KNOW how I feel about Mean Girls.
One of my favorite songs from Heathers is Freeze Your Brain, a ballad performed by Mr. No-Name Kid himself; JD. In it, he explains his struggle to fit in, suppression of his feelings, and his safe place (any 7-11 gas station). That song is teen angst at its finest, and we’ve all felt like a JD at one point or another.
Enter the Mr. No-Name Kid Cable Scarf! If you’ve been following my designs for a while, you’ll know that I had this pattern sitting around for a while, patiently waiting for its time to shine. This pattern was made to highlight the endless possibilities of color working crochet cables! Two colors of cables is possible, and within reach! Even if you have never attempted cabling before, I would recommend this pattern. Especially because every technique used is available in video tutorials on my YouTube channel! Need to learn cables?
