Ishknit the yarn bomber

You might’ve heard the term “yarn bombing” on ye olde internet and even seen pictures of what it looks like. But what’s it all about? How is it done? Who are these artists that practice yarn bombing?

American Hipster Presents is a series of video portraits that focus on trendsetters across the country. They’re doing 10 cities, 5 people in each city. In episode #12, they go to Philadelphia to visit Ishknit, a yarn bombing street artist. It’s interesting to see the how, why and wherefore behind this craft-meets-guerilla-art form.
