Laced Retro Lyrics
Cassette Tape Crochet May Be the Chosen Media of 1980s-Born Grandmothers

Though it’s beginning to interest the younger generation like never before, the idea of knitting still strikes me as an old woman’s hobby. However, the former consideration may make these Cassette Tape Crochet projects a lot less surprising.

Artist Jennifer Cantwell has a knack for making intricate handcrafted objects, and there’s a handsome harmony to her collection of doilies made from old cassette tape. The dark glossy ribbons of film are unconventional but reasonable mediums to work with when weaving—I can only imagine how such complex web-like patterns are achieved with such an fussy fabric.

Nevertheless, somehow, Beethoven’s Sonata No. 8 and the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album have been reborn into elaborate decorative artifacts. Could it be that these extraordinary examples of Cassette Tape Crochet may even match the needlework aesthetic of the eras of the music’s composure?
