There’s nothing more “metal” than a heavy metal knitting competition! The 2022 Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship recently took place Joensuu, Finland. It’s one of those things that you have to see to believe! It’s pretty crazy, but hey, why not?

These contestants performed live and then stopped playing their instrument to start knitting. Amazing.

A Facebook post on the contest states, “In heavy metal knitting, needlework and music become united like never before. On the same stage … heavy metal music and knitting shaking hands. Knitting to the rhythm of heavy metal music can be compared to playing air guitar.”
