World Record Broken
Yarnspirations and along with 830 men and women helped to crochet and knit the World’s Biggest Knit / Crochet Christmas Stocking. See behind the scenes photos.
The call went out to crocheters and knitters starting in January 2015 to begin to make 36″ squares for the stocking. There was no limit to how many you could submit. The designs were open to interpretation for people to do.
I even designed one of the squares that people could use called the American Flag Baby Square.
