The World’s Biggest Stocking
It’s official! Caron yarn has set the Guinness World Record for The Biggest Knit/Crochet Stocking! Weighing in at over 1600 pounds, the stocking is made up of approximately 1260 blankets hand knit and crocheted by 830 people. Thank you to everyone that donated a blanket in support of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation!
Watch the action behind the scenes as they set the world record:
