A Bull in a Sweater

We love to see the creative things that people yarn bomb.  It’s always fun when artists add knit or crochet to existing statues, such as Robyn Love’s “Memorials/The Doughboy”.  New York City’s newest sweater clad statue is the iconic Wall Street Bull.  Olek, the same artists who brought us the crocheted bicycle, crocheted this fabulous cozy.  You can see her putting it all together in the video below.

Tell us about the fun places you’ve seen knitted and crocheted art near you.
