Woman Knits Ferrari Using 12 Miles of Yarn [VIDEO]


If you ever wanted to be the owner of a sleek and flashy red Ferrari, now’s your chance — assuming, of course, you don’t mind that it’s made out of wool.

That’s right – wool.

UK-based artist Lauren Porter, 22, used approximately 12 miles of the stuff (over 10 years, no less) to craft a red Ferrari that’s almost exactly to scale.

“The knitting is made up mostly of squares, around 250. I made paper patterns from the frame and knitted and crocheted the other shapes and details by eye. I have never followed a pattern and would be lost if I had to knit a pair of socks!” she told AOL News.

The model car has already been on display at fine-art galleries and car shows in London, Paris and Amsterdam, and now, Porter says it’s time for it to find a permanent home.

“I would ideally like it to be on display and enjoyed by the public but am open to any ideas,” she said.

In the past Porter has knitted a life-sized chair, toilet and sink. She’s currently working on a series of quilted British birds.
