In the city that never sleeps, it would seem like there's no chance to creep in under the cover of night to stitch a super-sized sweater for a standing sculpture without anyone noticing, but the Agata Olek Crocheted Astor Place Cube popped up regardless.

Olek, the queen of crochet, has previously wrapped up whole rooms, vehicles, and even the iconic Financial District 'Charging Bull' sculpture in a cozy yarn outfit. The 'Alamo' Cube that usually stands naked in Astor Place is now covered for the cold season in now stiched in a hot pink and purple camo-print coat.

The Agata Olek Crocheted Astor Place Cube adds to the one woman "knit-bombing" movement the artist has produced and you never know what the needle-wielding wonder will drape in a dramatic cloak next!
