How Carlos Muñoz became the crochet king of Solano State Prison

Apr 29, 2019

From the series Uncuffed:

Carlos Muñoz had been incarcerated for more than 20 years when he finally found his calling—crochet. He started out in hiding, embarrassed to crochet in front of other men. But over time, he brought his art into the light. Carlos shared the wisdom he’s learned from his crochet hooks.

"Crochet is very forgiving. All you have to do is pull on a string, go back to where you made your mistake, and just redo everything all over again. You don't have to throw away the yarn."
