Tiny Sweaters

Above, a video about making the teeny-tiny sweaters seen in the movie "Coraline."

Said artist Althea Crome: "I think knitters are often fascinated by the fact that I use such tiny needles. Some of the needles are almost the dimension of a human hair."


More: "I love the paradox of creating an object that takes the form of something you can wear, yet is impossible to wear."


Above, van Gogh's "Starry Night" as reenvisioned by Crome.

Can she knit one for you?

Apply within.
