ack in 1999, Sam Barsky learned how to knit sweaters.
He never fathomed his craft would go viral...
It all started 18 years ago.
Barsky told Mashable, “I started knitting in March 1999 and made two solid colored sweaters followed from a pattern.”
The next year, he decided to further challenge himself, patternlessly knitting his own pictorial sweaters.
He explained, “After that was a success, I’ve been knitting sweaters like that one after another, featuring either generic scenery or specific landmarks. Anything that crosses my eyes is a potential sweater.”
Whether his sweaters showcase Times Square, Stonehenge, the Chicago Skyline, or some local hotspot, Barsky's nimble fingers can seemingly turn any landscape into a spot-on wearable version.
The Reddit community recently uncovered Barsky’s sweaters, skyrocketing photos of his work to the site’s front page.

Sweater after sweater, Barsky's craftsmanship highlights his sharp attention to detail.
At present, Barsky's sweater collection consists of 103 different knitted creations, each featuring different places all across the globe.
