A group of knitters from Yarn Bombing Los Angeles tragically bombed an entire museum with yarn in what is being called ‘CAFAM Granny Squared.’ Over 500 knitters collaborated in order to devastate the Craft and Folk Art Museum with yarn. In a statement by the bombers, they expressed that “our goal is to make the museum look like an oversized dollhouse stuck in the city.”

The monumental effort took over nine months to complete. Thousands of 50-inch granny squares were created in order to plaster the museum. People from 25 countries took part and managed to knit 12,500 squares.

Though the installation will be taken down, the yarn will be put to good use. The squares of cozy fabric will be recreated into blankets and donated.
