Inmates at a Brazil jail have taken to knitting in an enterprise with a local fashion designer.

Prisoners are taught the art of knitting and crocheting, providing them with valuable new skills which they can use in the outside world.

And they can even earn one day off their sentence for every three days spent knitting.
