Blan­ket cov­er­age

Simply Crochet - - HOOKED -

Last month, 15,000 peo­ple headed to Park Vi­jvers­burg in the Nether­lands to view The Largest Cro­cheted Blan­ket in the World. Monique van der Hoek and Es­mer­alda de Virse called on the in­ter­na­tional cro­chet com­mu­nity to get in­volved and the re­sult was 10,840 blan­kets with an area of 25,500m2, con­trib­uted by peo­ple from 50 coun­tries. Now the chal­lenge is over, the blan­kets will be do­nated to var­i­ous char­i­ties to dis­trib­ute to those in need. "It was an ini­tia­tive to vi­su­alise peo­ple’s strength and warmth and the blan­kets rep­re­sent con­nec­tion and di­ver­sity," ex­plains Es­mer­alda.
