Introduction: Crocheted Maynard Clock Tower

I am a domestic engineer, aka. a stay at home Mom. A former science geek, scenic carpenter, and …

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!
