Abstract:

On city street corners, around telephone posts, through barbed wire fences, and over abandoned cars, "Knit graffiti" is an international guerrilla movement that started underground and is now embraced by crochet and knitting artists of all ages, nationalities, and genders. Its practitioners create works of art out of yarn, then "donate" them to public spaces as part of a covert plan for world yarn domination. This book is a guidebook to covert textile street art. It features twenty 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 demonstrates how to orchestrate a large-scale textile project and offers revealing information necessary to design your own yarn graffiti tags. The book also includes interviews with members of the international community of textile artists and yarn bombers, and provides resources to help readers join the movement.

Inspirerende handleiding voor het creëren van textiele straatkunst: het versieren van onderdelen van de openbare ruimte (bijv. palen, hekken, muren, straatnaamborden) met gehaakte en gebreide werkstukken; met praktische tips voor het (al dan niet in groepsverband) heimelijk organiseren en uitvoeren, inclusief 20 patronen.
