Want to be a world record holder? Then get involved in the UK Handknitting Association and Craft Club UK's attempt to make the world's longest knitted chain.


The organisation is asking idle knitters to work with their friends, neighbours and everyone else they know to create knitted chains, which will be joined together to hopefully become a record breaking leviathon!

They've put a pattern up on there website for singular loops of the chain here, but remember to link them before closing them up. The project is running throughout 2013, so keep an eye on their website and sign up to their monthly newsletter.

Knit Now wishes them the best of luck, though given their track record they don't need it! After all last year, the UKHKA became the record holders in May last year for the most people knitting simultaneously for 15 minutes.
