The Fabulous Story of Stitch London (formerly Stitch and Bitch London)

A giant sister scarf begins in the Big Apple

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 27, 2007

We love a hugely over-sized scarf here at Stitch and Bitch London, so we are big fans of the Big Draw Scarf in New York.

New York’s The Drawing Center and River to River Festival are attempting to knit a scarf that is 40,000 rows long to represent the 40,000 employees at the World Financial Center companies.

The idea is to grab your leftover yarn and half finished knits you know deep down you will never return to, stick them all togther, bring them along to a one of their Big Knit Ins, graft them onto their scarf and hey presto your knitting is part of this attempt at the world’s longest line, The Big Draw Scarf. Hurrah.

You can read more about it on their blog here.
