The All-out Multifunctional Craft Journey of the Tight Knits

Research old traditional textiles and praise them through re-contextualization,

travel, get lost in translation, learn new stitches through signs and pointing.

Be passionate for crafts, embrace mistakes, embrace happy-accidents,

fabricate tight-knit bonds, crochet in the tightest tension, crochet,

crochet everywhere, talk about your project with a fellow commuter.

Work hard, have a laugh, collaborate,

wear your pieces in different ways, take photos, play!
