Treesweater

Acrylic yarn, 3 x 5 inches, 2006.
In the winter of 2006 I was standing outside my office in downtown Seattle when I noticed a sad, spindly tree. “That tree needs a sweater,” I thought.

The next thing I knew, my tree sweater was featured on the cover of Seattle’s weekly newspaper The Stranger.

In 2009 I published a Tree Sweater knitting pattern in the book Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti.
