Spotted: A Crochet Bike in NYC

May 25th, 2010

Pin It

I was walking through the Lower East Side of New York City when I spotted this bike, completely covered in crochet. Notice that even the kick-stand and wheels are completely covered!

I’m not sure where it came from or why it was there, but it was a fun sight that reminded me of the surprising places you can come across yarn art.

Updated: Turns out the bike is a piece by Olek, a Brooklyn-based crochet artist who works in colorful crochet, creating arresting moments of pop colors in the urban landscape!
