The book comes with all the materials to make Sophia

As we enter the 800th month of this coronavirus pandemic, people are still looking for new ways to entertain themselves. If you’ve never crocheted before, now may be a good time to learn because there’s a book that will help you create an entire Golden Girls crew of your very own.

Crochet The Golden Girls is a new book from Allison Hoffman, and it promises to deliver the four sassy ladies we’ve all come to know and love — Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, Dorothy Zbornak, and Sophia Petrillo — for under $23. Time to grab a crochet hook, some cheesecake, and a favorite beverage of choice because this sounds like the perfect little Sunday to me.


The book gives readers a step-by-step guide to creating our very own tiny, soft ladies of Miami; and, as a bonus, the kit includes all the materials you need to make Sophia. Of course, she wouldn’t be complete without her signature eyeglasses and wicker purse, and those are included as well.

The book also gives us patterns to create the rest of the crew, along with classic accessories like their couch, a palm leaf brooch, and two versions of cheesecake, because you can never, ever have enough cheesecake.


“Grab a crochet hook and head out to the lanai because it’s time to stitch up your favorite sassy senior ladies!” the book description reads on Amazon. “This officially licensed kit includes all the materials and instructions needed to make your own adorable Sophia doll complete with her signature purse, plus patterns to create Rose, Blanche, and Dorothy as well as fun accessories and props from the classic show that continues to have a cult following.”


If crocheting isn’t your idea of a relaxing time, there’s a ton of Golden Girls merch available to brighten up any space. In fact, not only are there Golden Girls Chia Pets to adorn your home, you can get everything from Golden Girls PEZ dispensers, granny panties (because who doesn’t want one of those faces covering their lady bits?), and even an entire Golden Girls-themed cruise you can go on with all of your friends complete with a “One Night in St. Olaf Dance Party.” Finally, if you’re all-in on the show, you can adorn your walls with Golden Girls wallpaper, which will most definitely set your house apart from the neighbors.

“Give a set to your best friend,” author Allison Hoffman wrote. “Make a Sophia coin purse for your mom. Feeling nostalgic? Crochet a little Fernando the Teddy Bear (one ear only) for the Rose in your life. What are you waiting for? Head out to the lanai with your crochet kit, whip up these amigurumi Golden Girls, then celebrate with cheesecake!”

Sounds like a plan to us.
