Knitted Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

Posted in Knitting, London

The very splendid Zoe is a huge fan of Shakespeare and we have a shared love of the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. As we recently enjoyed the behind the scenes tour, I knew a little knitted globe would be the perfect present for her.

Couldn’t find a pattern so had to improvise from pictures. Started with the roof because that’s the most distinctive bit and needed to be just right. Then I picked up stitches around the roof and worked the outside, followed by a circular base and the inner tube back up to the inside of the roof. The inner tube has three orange stripes to represent the tiers of seating.

Finally the stairwells and stage roof were knitted separately and sewn on.
