Mother India's Crochet Queens Sets World Record with Largest Crochet Blanket

Guinness World Records has recently announced a new record-breaking achievement by the Mother India's Crochet Queens from India.

The team successfully created the world's largest crochet blanket, measuring a stunning 11,148.5 m² (120,001 ft² 72 in²), which was large enough to cover an entire football pitch.

An official adjudicator from Guinness World Records verified the impressive feat during a visit to Chennai, India.

The mastermind behind the enormous project was Subashri Natarajan, a 44-year-old crochet enthusiast who has been passionate about the craft since her childhood.

Natarajan shared that she has always been an ambitious individual, constantly seeking opportunities to achieve great things in life.

She decided to take matters into her own hands and researched Guinness World Records projects related to crochet.

Her dedication and hard work paid off with this impressive world record, which has earned her and her team global recognition.

"Having the very thought of associating myself with Guinness World Records gave me a sense of pride. That which I cannot feel or achieve with any other organization in the world. Anyone in the world can identify and understand the magnanimity of Guinness World Records. Having attained a great record, I feel proud and at the same time thankful to Guinness World Records for being supportive throughout the entire journey. To me, the journey has just begun and it is to follow many more dreams and adventures in the coming years."

Initially planning to go for the title alone, Subashri soon realized she’d need help and used Social Media to invite Indian women across the globe to unite as part of her Mother India’s Crochet Queens campaign.

Over 1,000 participants aged eight to 85, from India, as well as 13 other countries, contributed by creating hundreds of 40 x 40 in sections to make one enormous blanket.

Once the record was confirmed, the huge crochet blanket was taken apart and the individual squares were donated to those in need through NGO charities.

Record-breaking crochet tapestries have grown significantly since the title was first achieved in 1999 with a comparatively tiny 23.77 x 8.22 m (78 x 27 ft) creation. The most recent record was 3,377 m² (36,349.58 ft²), produced by 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day (South Africa) in April 2015 - but the Crochet Queens’ design was more than three times larger.
