Winner + Crochet World Record

Our international brand KnitPro recently participated in a project to create the world's largest crochet blanket. In conjunction with an Indian group called Mother INDIA's Crochet Queens - MICQ, crocheters throughout India and several other parts of the globe took up the challenge. On the 31st of January in Chennai, India, they not only broke the previous record (which was 3,377 square meters), but also set up a nearly unbeatable new world record of the largest blanket with an impressive 11,148 square meters total!

You can watch the short video below to learn more about this record-breaking project:

We were very happy to be a part of such a major collaborative effort by Indian women! Below, you can see photos of our own team of crocheters who contributed blankets to the project. They were especially excited to participate once they learned that the blankets would be donated to underprivileged children so that they could keep warm during the winter months. Our workers come from humble backgrounds, but the spirit in them to contribute towards a charity cause was very inspiring.

Each individual worked day in and day out to finish as many blankets as they could, and their toil resulted in our donating over 500 ready blankets for the record. In addition to the number of blankets contributed to the project, we also supplied 300 crochet hooks for this project.
