Introduction: Crocheted Maynard Clock Tower

Picture of Crocheted Maynard Clock Tower

The Clock Tower is the symbol of our town, Maynard, Massachusetts. 
It is in the center of town, in what once was a mill, then was the computer company Digital, and now is filled with many different companies. 
You can hear the bell ring every hour from anywhere in town. 

I decided to crochet a model of the clock tower, and I am donating it to the PTO Auction for our elementary school. 

When I want to crochet something, I try to break up the piece into simple shapes, (circles, squares, triangles, spheres, etc.) Then put them all together. I think you can crochet almost anything this way.

This is so cool and an unexpected find! I worked for DEC for many years, and the clock tower is a fond memory. I may make this in miniature with crochet thread. Thanks for sharing, and congrats on being a contest Finalist!
