Crocheting a Yurt

Craft & Design Yarncraft


Kate Pokorny is crocheting a yurt from woolminiyurt. Not a mini yurt, although she makes those too, but a full-size structure that will support itself and provide shelter. Her project’s called Yurt Alert, and you can get involved at Kate’s website and support her through Kickstarter, where there’s also a neat video about her project. [via ReadyMade]

    Thanks again!
