Design Inspiration – Guerrilla Knitting

Operating from a secret underground wool-lined bunker in the heart of the busy metropolis of London, Knit the City’s Yarn Corps are a crack team of woolly warriors and part of an ongoing campaign to guerrilla knit the world.

Guerrilla knitting or ‘yarnstorming’ is the art of covering part of the world in a knitted or crocheted fabric. It is a street art that harks back to woolly thoughts of grandmas and nice cups of tea by the fire, then takes that stereotype by the blue rinse and drags it kicking and screaming into the street to wrap round a lamppost, blanket a bollard, or swathe a signpost.

No part of the city is safe from Knit the City’s woolly war on the mundane, humdrum and expected. Here are a few examples of guerrilla knitting antics from Knit the City and other yarnstormers worldwide.
