Knitting group aims for world record A GROUP of knitters in Frankston have worked together to break a world record. Knit-A-Row-And-Go is a community group based out of Frankston. Alongside other keen knitters from WA and Queensland, the group has knitted a giant tea cosy. The world record for largest tea cosy previously stood at 3.4 metres high with a circumference of 11.1 metres. The Frankston group’s effort stands in at 5.1 metres tall with a 19.3 metre circumference. The measurements are being sent to Guinness World Record for approval. While the group waits to hear if their record is official, they have split the cosy into rugs and donated them to Lismore flood relief project and Community Support Frankston.
