Record breaking or just plain wierd knitting April 14, 2019 00:22

Odd KnittingAs knitting is the topic today, here are some really big or just really odd knitted things..

1 - Hase/Rabbit.

It's possibly the biggest knitted thing ever made and it's rotting away on a hill in Italy. Artists made it, obvs!

2 - The World's Longest Scarft

Helge Johansen from Oslo broke the record on 12 November 2013. He's a guy.

3 - Knitted swimwear

Apparently it was a massive thing. I cannot think of anything less appropriate to make swimwear out of, but here's the proof it happened

4 - Knitted playgrounds that are big enough for actual kids!

These are amazing, beautiful, and joyful installations by artist Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam. Please look, you'll be missing out if you don't.

5 - Full body jumpers you can buy on Etsy.

I really really want this mohair genius/madness!

6 - Knitted brain beanie

Such a cool pattern on Ravelry! Knit and wear this science student's awesome brain hat and be the oddest person on the Tube for the day.

7 - A Tea Cosy big enough to cover the entire cafe

It's in the running for a world record....

8 - Sartje's Booties

Actually there is nothing odd about these. It's just that it's a rite of passage for knitters to make these once they can follow a pattern. And with good reason, it's just about the perfect improvers knit.
