Whether they're knitting colourful clothes for trees, crocheting adornments on park benches, or wrapping traffic signs in brightly hued yarn, urban knitters are waging woolly war on the mundane, humdrum, and expected. You'll find this urban art on the most familiar locations:
phone booths, buses, chain-link fences, subway platforms, and park benches. Vibrant and clever, making a statement that's irreverent and rebellious, the urban knitting scene has grown to be an international phenomenon. Fashion hound Simone Werle has captured the most intriguing of these creations from around the globe. The images collected in this book will surprise and delight readers, who will certainly keep their eyes out for evidence that urban knitting has come to their city.
