A special crocheted Christmas tree produced by the Martha community in Mynämäki, Finland.

In 2021, a community knitting project arranged by the Martha Organisation in Finland produced a crocheted Christmas tree. This three and a half metre tall tree is made out of more than 500 15x15 cm ‘Granny Squares’ produced by 25 crocheters. 

The Martha Organization is a Finnish non-profit organization well-known for its dedication to educating the public in matters of home economics. Founded in 1899 The ‘Marthas’ are often turned to for advice on food, nutrition, gardening, the environment, family finances and consumer issues. It also provides cultural and civic education and engages in advocacy work in Finland.
