this spanish town has a vibrant crocheted sky


In the Spanish town of Alhaurín de la Torre, Málaga, crochet teacher Eva Pacheco and her talented students have created a series of huge crocheted awnings. Made from recycled fabric, the vibrant canopy covers an area of approximately 500 square metres. Pretty impressive, eh?

The project was devised by the local council's clever environment department and has been running for three years. Aside from protecting local walkers from the sun, the crocheted ceiling has also provided the town with a pop of colour, and gave Eva and her students a welcome distraction from the COVID pandemic. We hope their lovely handiwork has brightened your day, too.
