YARN-bombs have started appearing in Natimuk as part of the Nati Frinj festival.
Yarn-bombing is a type of street art that employs knitted yarn instead of paint of chalk.
Frinj volunteer Sarah Natali said the yarn-bombs were part of a competition running throughout the event.
“People can install yarn-bombs any time over the festival,” she said.
“Lots of knitting has been done but there have been no entries for the competition yet.”
She said the committee had been busy putting up knitting around the town.
“Lots of people have been stopping in town and taking photos, which is really good,” she said.
“We wanted to encourage something a bit different.”
Ms Natali said the yarn-bomb would be judged on Sunday.
Many yarn-bombs were placed across the town in memory of Max Duncan, who was involved in the festival.
Mr Duncan died earlier this month, but had knitted items for the festival before his death.
The three-day festival will start on Friday.
A parade to Market Square for the official opening ceremony will launch the festival.
Musician Todd Cook will take to the stage from 6.45pm, and a food market will be available after the opening ceremony.
There will be 65 events during the festival, including performing arts shows, workshops and music.
