Meet the man who knits sweaters of famous landmarks, and then visits them

When Sam Barsky first started knitting sweaters 18 years ago, his designs featuring different landmarks were inspired by places he had already visited.

Here’s Sam Barsky wearing a self-knitted sweater featuring Stonehenge — in front of the actual Stonehenge.

“Now I’m doing them before going to a certain place,” Barsky told TODAY. “At first I was just doing it unconsciously, but then I decided to make that an intentional form of art.”

To the delight of the internet, Barsky, 42, has taken photos of himself wearing many of his 103 self-made sweaters of landmarks in front of the actual places, from Times Square in New York City to Stonehenge in England.
