At the end of a long week, my idea of a wild Friday night is pouring a glass of wine and watching the Golden Girls. The only thing that could level-up up this experience is a Golden Girls crochet kit, and as fate would have it, such a thing exists. The internet is truly a remarkable thing.
Crochet The Golden Girls is a new book from Allison Hoffman, which includes 10 crochet patterns to create Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, Dorothy Zbornak, and Sophia Petrillo. So please excuse me while I grab that glass of white wine—preferably in a Golden Girls tumbler—and head out to the lanai for a wild night in with my favorite girl pals.
As a bonus, this crochet kit includes all the materials you need to make your own Sophia doll. And the details, such as her signature eyeglasses and wicker purse, will make any true fans picture Sicily clearly. Once you’ve found your footing, continue with patterns to create the remaining trio of badass women, plus accessories and props from the beloved NBC sitcom. Those include the iconic couch, a palm leaf brooch, and not one but two versions of cheesecake.
So why not grab a cheesecake, and invite your squad over for a wild night of crocheting? Just don’t blame me if the neighbors can hear you belting out the words to the theme song “Thank You for Being a Friend” at the top of your lungs by the end of the night.
Originally written by Andrew Gold, the version featured on the show is a cover recorded by Cynthia Fee. And I wouldn’t blame you if you already started humming it in your head: “Thank you for being a friend / Traveled down a road and back again / Your heart is true / You’re a pal and a confidant.”
