Knit the Bridge is a
Public Art Project
That means we need you to help make it happen!
There are many fun ways to get involved:
- Knit or Crochet – Help us celebrate the many diverse communities of Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania by knitting and crocheting panels to cover a bridge. Before getting started, get more information at our Make a Panel! instruction page.
- Organize a Meet-Up - Help us include and reach out to as many Pittsburghers as possible by organizing a knit or crochet meet-up in your neighborhood or township. Form a knitting circle with a bunch of your friends, teach a classroom of students to crochet at your local school, or learn from longtime knitters at senior centers in your community. For more information on organizing a Knit the Bridge gathering attend our monthly Community Leaders Meetings and RSVP email@example.com.
- Donate Materials – Help others participate by donating yarn, knitting needles, and crochet hooks. For more information on types of materials and drop off points see our list of Drop Off Points.
Reminder: We are currently working with the bridge’s keepers and the Office of Public Art to ensure the full success and safety of this project moving forward.
