Riddle me this, Batman. Who’s the knitter/crocheter on the crew for, Zack & Miri Make a Porno? Because let me tell you, the movie is a veritable “I Spy” delight for the yarn fan. Stars Seth Rogan (Zack) and Elizabeth Banks (Miri) were rarely not sporting Feather & Fan, Garter Stitch scrap, and novelty crochet scarves; floral ponchettes; chunky, fair isle toboggans and be-pompomed hats.
The flick itself is funny but I should mention, a hard “R”. If you’re under-age or easily offended (or made uncomfortable) you should probably skip it. Lest you have to then miss out on the yarn goodness of Zack & Miri however, I’ve created a pictorial–a knitwear storyboard, if you will–of some of pieces worn in the film. Wardrobe department, this tribute’s for you!
Thanks to Dave who’s a big enough fan of Seth Rogan’s to stand in a 2-hour line last night for a SXSW screening of his new movie (Observe and Report), but still didn’t get (too) annoyed by the number of times I had him pause the Z&M Blu-ray so I could take pictures. You are the wind beneath my knitted, fan-girl wings.
Now, carry on with your regularly scheduled programming.
I’ve legit been waiting for @ikeausa to have this glass case in-stock since mid pandemic. I wanted a happy little place for projects of YarnYAY! Past to live. I love a knitwear stack. 😍 It’s the little things, people!
(Oh, and patterns for every thing in this curio are available in my shop at YarnYAY.com ✔️)...
Today's the day we kick off the Crochet-along for the @pompommag Overprint Bag, in partnership with designer @juliamadill
We've put together Montoya Merino Light kits in my YarnYAY! shop, but no matter which yarn you use (the called-for yarn is rad, but a little harder to get here in the states -- see Julia's great post about yarn substitutions), we'd love for you to make yours along with us!
Psst...YarnYAYers get a special 20% off the digital issue pf Pom Pom. See our kit page (tap or go to yarnyay.com) for details!
Join the YarnYAY! Facebook Group and/OR Ravelry Group to follow along. Hope to see you there!
The March YarnYAY! Box crochet project is 𝘍𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘵, a crochet, boomerang shawlette. The shape is more commonly seen in knitted pieces, but I love it because if you want the piece to be larger, you just keep working it in the established pattern.
𝘍𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘵 is worked with a sweet, as-to-go edging and optional, appliquéd, chain-florets. I designed it to be worn as shown here, scarf-style, but with the option to go full-shawl. You do you!

MODEL FUN FACT:
The gorgeous human modeling this shawlette, Kat Roberts, was the main featured young woman (swipe to see) in the infamous 1992, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog video “Nothing But a G Thang”. That video didn’t age well, but man, she sure did! 🤩
Ooo. I quite like the long, slightly messy looking scarf in the last large picture.
Thank you for mentioning this!!! I watched this movie twice and I also spotted some awesome knitwear. I kept telling my boyfriend throughout the movie, “I can totally make that”, or “I love her hat”, or “I AM totally going to make that hat!!” My favorite part is that it’s all displayed on the back of the door. I was actually wondering if you’d mention this movie since you’ve mentioned others with far less great knits!
Psst… I know who it is… but don’t know if she wants outed, or if she is all of it!
Cheryl: If you know how to contact her, as her! I’d love to credit her. 🙂
Thanks for the highlights! Better to see these than the movie for this non-Seth Rogen fan.
Kisses to your Dave. He rocks to the 10th power!
Enjoying the yarn-porn from this movie!
Oh my word…I watch for knit/crochet items in movies too. It’s just sad.
I particularly liked the pieces in the Nancy Drew, and the Kit American Girl movies.
Glad I’m not alone in this. I thought I was strange for doing it. 🙂
yay! another great reason too see the hilarious looking film.
these knits look really beautiful. I recently watched Fargo again and boy, the sweaters and accessories in that film! yikes!!!
Vicki – How funny, I just watched this movie LAST NIGHT for the first time. I, too, took note of all the knitwear…I think Miri even mentions trading something with the gal at the yarn shop….possibly for her fun Reunion clothes?
I believe Miri actually works in a yarn shop, no?
We went to see it in the theater and I drove my friends crazy with all the squees of delight at the knitting and crochet work everywhere!!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. These pictures are just what I was looking for.
I would totally buy a Zack and Miri knits book.
LOL. That would be a tough sell to the publisher. Retailers tend to shy away from craft books associated with the word “porn”. 😉
