54 Rue du Chateau:

A collaborative, progressive shawl project based on the game Exquisite Corpse, invented by the Surrealists in the early 20th century at a house at 54 Rue du Chateau. These shawls traveled from designer to designer over the course of seven months, and each section built upon the work of the previous designers. The final section was knit by the original designer, bringing the project full circle.
