2017 Geek-A-Long: Raven

Raven is the dark and sarcastic member of the Teen Titans, but you would be too if your mother was seduced into a demon cult and then raped by an interdimensional demon, making your father the super evil Trigon. Luckily, Raven grew up in an alternate dimension and learned how to control her “emotions” (aka her demon side) from the pacifists of Azarath.

Raven is an empath, able to sense and alter other peoples emotions. She can even absorb the pain of others into herself and rapidly heal them. Her other abilities include telekinesis, flight, some magic, astral projection, teleportation, and general peak-human strength and agility.

Most of what I know about Raven comes from the original Teen Titans cartoon. And yes, I do ship Raven and Beast Boy together. They are the cutest. Cartoon Network agrees.

Whether you’re knitting, crocheting, or cross stitching this square, you can download the Raven pattern here. Instructions and charts for both knit and crochet are listed in the pattern. When you’re finished making it, don’t forget to Instagram your squares at us @lattesandllamasyarn with the hashtag #geekalong!

If you’re having trouble with double-sided knitting, we have a how-to video here and a tutorial on crochet here. Want to hang out with other people making the blanket? You can find moral support in the Geek-A-Long group on Ravelry here.
