Carrisa Bopanna of Grade VII at Indian School Ghubra (ISG) entered in Guinness World Records for being part of a team that created the world’s longest crocheted scarf.

Carrisa was part of the Mother India’s Crochet Queens formed for bringing Indian women from across the globe to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Crochet Blanket.

Currently, the crochet group with the name MICQ GWR 2017 has created a new Guinness world record for the longest crochet scarf for a team. Once again, Indian women came together on this mission. The 5km-long scarf was crocheted in pieces of 2m and joined into one and displayed in Chennai.

The mission of the group is to distribute all the scarves to the needy through NGOs and social organisations after the display and announcement of the Guinness Record.

This will be done on the same day of the event by separating the scarves and distributing them to organisations whose credentials are pre-verified by a team.

Carrisa said the activity had given her immense confidence in her life apart from day-to-day activities.
