A more crafty and less destructive form of graffiti is taking over the streets and in the book Yarn Bombing, Mandy Moore & Leanne Parin explore the new art of guerilla knitting and crochet.

Exploring knit graffiti across the streets and meeting the people behind the yarn, discover how the movement started and see examples of yarn bombing in action. Once you've been inspired to give it a go for yourself, learn everything you need to know from measuring and blocking to gathering your crew and stitching projects such as Monster Feet, a Knitted Tulip and a Treesweater.

Grab your sticks and give the streets a taste of your own yarn bombing!
