Knitters cover Pittsburgh’s Warhol Bridge in yarn
August 12, 2013

PITTSBURGH (AP) – More than 1,800 knitters have covered Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Bridge in 3,000 feet of colorful yarn.


Volunteers worked all weekend to attach 580 blanket-size, hand-knitted panels to the pedestrian walkways on the downtown bridge, and riggers attached larger panels to the towers.

The planning and permitting started about 18 months ago, said Amanda Gross, 29, who had the idea for the project.
