Yarn bombing in Berkeley, S.F. and beyond

Attaching scallop tag to barred window at Berkeley Public Library
A particularly easy but pretty “tag” is a length of crochet scallops. The pattern is by Stephanie Lau from Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti.

During a New Year’s trip in the Bay Area I attached two more scallop tags: one to a barred window at the Berkeley Public Library and one to a railing cable at the “Book Bay” at Fort Mason operated by Friends of the San Francisco Library.

On our vacation in Ashland, I installed scallop tags at some area libraries (Redding Library, Shasta Public Libraries and the Ashland and Phoenix branches of Jackson County Library Services) but now that I’m more proficient in creating message tags, I would like to focus on those.
