Flying the Flag: a crowdsourced textile art project

Hey wassup ma Knittaz!

We’ve been asked to contribute piece of textile work to an art project that will be exhibited in Blackpool in March. We need to create a knitted/crocheted American flag. Can you help us?

Your mission is to make squares for the flag.

Squares need to be:

  • Knitted or crocheted (any pattern/stitch)
  • Measure 5 inches squared
  • Red, white or blue (try and stick to royal/bright blue and bright red, slight colour variations will be fine)


We’ll collect the squares at the next KWA session – 6pm on Mon 6th Feb at Claremont Park Community Centre. If you can help, please let us know how many squares you will make (and what colour) . You can do this by emailing us (infoATauntysocialDOTcoDOTuk), via Twitter (_@AuntySocial_) or via Facebook. If you can’t make it to KWA in Feb to hand them in, just let us know and we can give you a postal address or arrange to get them picked up if you live locally.

Ready?

Steady?

KNIT!
