Yarn Bombing in Mulhouse

In March, April and May 2015 a large-scale artistic endeavor to dress the City Center of Mulhouse with color and thread was undertaken. Anyone who could knit, crochet or sew was invited to join in. I doubt if this tree in the grounds of the Musee des Beaux Artes is from the original project, and we didn't see any other examples, but we both agreed it brightened the place up.

  1. Do you think that it was made to fit that particular tree? I have often wondered if a tape measure has been used a week or two before.

    1. Hard to say. I'm inclined to think it was fitted together like a mosaic on the spot from whatever random crocheted shapes they had.
