Last week I shared crochet spotted on various TV shows but what I didn’t share was that I noticed tons and tons of crochet throughout the first season of Orange is the New Black. I thought I’d share that here today. Not only is it always fun to find crochet on TV but I also know that crochet can be really healing and beneficial in prisons so it’s great to see it showing up on this show even if its healing properties aren’t specifically highlighted.
I first noticed some in the background of episode four. Some inmates are sorting through what appears to be a donation box and there’s granny square crochet prominently hanging out of it.
This crochet hat was spotted in episode five
This retro-colored crochet blanket appears in episode 8
From episode ten
That’s a chevron crochet blanket in episode 11
Another crochet blanket appears in episode 12
And finally, also in episode 12, crochet is actually mentioned when Piper learns a single crochet stitch:
If you’re a fan of the show and you know any that I missed I’d love to know about it!
