Micro Knitter Althea Crome Gets an Incredible 80 Stitches To The Inch
Her work is so impossibly small … how she does it … it’s almost unimaginable.
See more of Althea Crome’s incredible work at altheacrome.com. This Bloomington, Indiana-based artist pioneered knitting at a 1:12 scale. You have likely seen her work, her miniature knit garments adorn the lead character of the 2009 stop-motion film, Coraline.

I am in awe of this skill level, Do you use thread and sewing needles or wire as needles?

probably 000 knitting needles ,,that way you can do three at a time
OMG, I have never seen anything like these little jumpers (sweaters), they are exquisite. You’re so clever.

I am not in awe I am knocked over stupid. I can almost crochet but knitting and these pieces to me are works of art. If you sell any please let me know. I hope I can afford at least 1.
I suspect 000 needles would be too large for this scale knitting – I am curious what was used?

Needle size would probably be .5 mm. Thread would probably be sewing thread. Metric is so much easier than a bunch of zeros in a row! lol …

I love the tiny items, how do I get patterns? I have up to 000000 needles!
Hi Kathy, I don’t think Althea sells patterns, but feel free to reach out to her. Good luck!

My mother used to knit mini argyle socks while listing to her lectures in college. She used cocktail toothpicks as needles.
