How much pasta is too much pasta? For myself, and other pasta lovers out there, the answer is “there is no such thing as too much pasta”. Whether you’re a fan of fusilli or have a soft spot for stuffed tortelloni, pasta enthusiasts can now enjoy the pantry staple in yarn form.

California-based crafter Normalynn Ablao shapes everything from individual penne and loops of spiralling spaghetti crafted from yellow yarn to blocks of colorful lasagna that are piled high and stuffed with the classic “meat” and “bechamel sauce” fillings.

In addition to pasta, Abalo also cleverly crafts other fare, including baked goods, savoury appetizers, and enticing entrees. Each of the textured designs has an uncanny likeness to the real deal, and one look at the fantastic range is enough to set tummies rumbling. Is it dinner time yet?

Ablao shares an extensive archive of patterns on her Etsy shop, the most popular being the “Pasta Party Crochet Pattern” ($7.80) which includes farfalle (bow-tie), fettuccine, penne (smooth), penne rigate (furrowed), ravioli, and tortellini.

Customers have been loving the custom and unique designs, getting their craft on and sharing the love for Ablao’s patterns with five-star reviews.

“I had my eye on this pattern for ages since seeing it on Reddit and I’m so glad I bought it! The pasta looks just like the pic – I couldn’t be happier.” said one customer, while another person said: Your patterns are so inspired. Crochet farfalle!!?! What!!! Genius!!”
