Over 8,000 crocheted afghans covered the steps of the Helsinki Cathedral in Finland. Often, Yarnbombing is done for charity or a cause. The Helsinki Cathedral yarnbombing installation was done in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest crocheted patchwork quilt in the world and then the quilts were donated.
