Largest Crochet Blanket in the World by Mother India’s Crochet Queens
Chennai, India – January 31, 2016
The Largest Crochet Blanket in the world made with hundreds of 40 x 40 inch squares contributed by over 1,000 participants from 14 different countries. It measures 11,148.5 meters square or about 120,001 feet square. It stretches across a football field!
Subashri Natarajan, 44, India, who came up with the idea, has been crocheting since she was 10 years old. She initially embarked on the project alone but began searching for more contributors and began a campaign called Mother India’s Crochet Queens which grew to include over 1,000 crocheters from age 8 to 85!
The first title for largest crochet blankets was first achieved in 1999 at about 72 feet x 27 feet. The most recent record was about 36,000 feet square made up of 67 blankets for Nelson Mandela Day (South Africa) in April 2015. This blanket is more than 3 times larger than the last winner!
