PITTSBURGH (AP) — The biggest “yarn bomb” ever attempted in the United States could soon swaddle a Pittsburgh bridge.
Yarn bombing is an art movement that covers objects in knitted cloth.
The Pittburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/12TZXdT ) reports that Allegheny County Council has voted to allow a group called Knit the Bridge to cover the Andy Warhol Bridge.
The group has solicited more than 1,200 volunteers and more than 100 organizations to knit panels for the project. It’s funded by grants.
The bridge is expected to be draped with yarn on Aug. 10 and remain covered through Sept. 7.
