There is a new form of graffiti hitting the streets, but it is extremely pleasant. Urban knitting, also called “guerrilla knitting,” is being spotted more and more in the streets and in public places all over the world.
A group of inspired knitters, who call themselves the “Knittas,” started the urban knitting trend in August 2005. The group began when the soon-to-be-Knittas were discussing their deep frustration over unfinished knitting projects: balls of yarn gathering dust and half knitted sweaters. Once the group knit its first door handle the rest was history – Knitta was born!
The Knittas knit everything from trees to public monuments and utility poles. Visit the Knitta photo gallery to get inspired!
