Yarn Bombing in Occidental Park, Seattle

Yarn bombing is textile graffiti. Trees, buses, parking meters, signs or anything really is covered with wrapped yarn or sweater-ed. It was started in Canada by the self-described “knitting ninja” Joann Matvichuk. (Watch that video, she’s hilarious.) To get an idea of how big the movement has grown, browse through these photos from around the world!

Seattle’s Pioneer Square, specifically Occidental Park, has gotten a taste of yarn too! Suzanne Tidwell was hired by Seattle to install a yarn bomb as seen in the pictures below. And if you are in the area, her blog says she would love knitters to contribute! The installation comes down in September.

  1. This is the coolest thing! How colorful and what a creative way to add color without adding more flowers that are merely seasonal anyway. Thanks for sharing- wow!
