The Purlesque group of Liverpool is looking for knitters & crocheters who would like to contribute a panel (or more) for a wallhanging inspired by Liverpool to celebrate our Capital of Culture status.
We are looking for knitted or crocheted square panels, size
30 cm x 30 cm (12 in x 12 in).
We would like plain panels (for example for parks & the River Mersey) and decorated ones (for example the letters of L-I-V-E-R-P-O-O-L, a picture of the Superlambanana, something music or sports-related, etc.), or even 3D pieces (buildings, grass, trees, etc.).
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced knitter/crocheter, you are welcome to take part in our project. We are happy to help and discuss your idea and you can also team up with other people to make a panel.
The deadline for submitting your panel(s) is
We plan to display the finished wallhanging in public spaces around Liverpool.
If you would like to take part, please send an e-mail to
