Last month I shared all of the crochet I spotted on Season One of Orange is the New Black. Today I thought I’d do a roundup for Season Two. I frequently spot crochet in the background of TV shows but it’s in almost every episode of this show and there are some really great pieces. They don’t really discuss the specific benefits of crochet in prison but by highlighting it in this way they help subtly raise awareness of the issue.

Episode Four is rich with examples of crochet:

The episode opens with Morello putting on her makeup and trying to glam up her look despite her surroundings. The final touch is this purple crochet scarf. It makes appearances on her all throughout the season.

Then right after that it goes to a scene of Morello in her life before prison and there’s this colorful crochet granny square blanket in that scene

tv crochet pillow

Then we see Piper talking to Red who is in bed, leaning up against a colorful crochet pillow (above) with a beautiful colorful crochet blanket atop her (below).

We see the pillow at least once more in the season but it’s the blanket that we keep seeing again and again, in most scenes where Red is in her bunk.

And finally there’s another crochet blanket scene here on Boo
