Crochet and knit graffiti is a growing guerrilla art movement that combines the traditional crafts of knitting and crochet with underground art.
Public spaces are transformed into yarn-covered shrines, providing an unexpected visual treat to passersby. Learn about some of the key figures of this movement, and discover how you can create your crochet and knit graffiti works with "Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti," published by Arsenal Pulp Press. Here is a bit of the book description:

This full-color DIY book features 20 kick-ass patterns that range from hanging shoes and knitted picture frames to balaclavas and gauntlets, teaching readers how to create fuzzy adornments for lonely street furniture. Along the way, it provides tips on how to be as stealthy as a ninja, demonstrates how to orchestrate a large-scale textile project, and offers revealing information necessary to design your own yarn graffiti tags.
