An Airstream camper van has been covered in knitting by a knitting group made up of charity workers.

The knitting group, called Knitiffi, is a collection of beneficiaries and staff from the Aspects and Milestones Trust, which helps people with learning disabilities and mental health needs.

The group was inspired by a new phenomenon known as ‘yarn bombing’, which is the unauthorised placement of knitted objects on public structures to personalise cold spaces.

The van was on display at the Paintworks Exhibition Space in Bristol last week and could remain for another week to mark National Knitting Week, which started on Sunday.
