Liverpool Knitted Wallhanging

Knit a panel for Liverpool, the Knitting Capital of Culture 2008!

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
30th September, 2008.

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
